prayer update

Oral learners are those people who learn best and whose lives are most likely to be transformed when instruction comes in oral forms.

There are four billion oral communicators in the world, that is two-thirds of the world's population. Pray for the Lord of the Harvest to send out Oral Bible workers into His harvest fields.

Story projects: South Asia

Oral stories are often the first step in a Bible translation project. Praise God for the life-changing impact these stories have had. After one workshop, three participants asked for baptism. Their neighbors are amazed at their changed lives. In another village, after someone told the story of the Fall through a public address system, people began confessing their sins and many even experienced healing. Pray for participants to boldly tell Bible stories in their communities. Pray also for more consultants to work with Irene as she advises the mother tongue teams. She recently wrote, "It is so wonderful to spend a whole day on a story and hear people at the end of the day say, "I have read this story so many times, but only now it has opened up for me.""
