I thank God He found me!

*Kazuri is a pleasant old woman, who cannot stop smiling. Are you always this happy? I ask her, as we chat outside her house. “Yes, who wouldn’t be? Since I became a Christian, I have known only Joy. I don’t even get sick – I was a sickly woman, you know!”

 She is eager to tell me how she became a Christian. “ I heard a man preaching in Kigiryama, reading from the New Testament and I said, “ that God must be real. He knows our language! The more I listened to him preaching, the more I became interested. My grandchild continued reading to me and telling me about Jesus. Soon, I knew that I needed to commit my life to this God.”

 As I look at *Kazuri, I can tell that this joy I see on her face comes from her heart.

 “What wasted years!” She says, staring into the horizon. “The life without Jesus! How vain! I wish I could live   again”.   But I thank God that He has saved me   before I die”.

 She is so fascinating to listen to. She gives me her life story - of visits to witch doctors, broken relationships and many   unpleasant things that have happened to     her in her lifetime - things she truly regrets. But she is grateful that they   belong to her past.

  I am curious to know if she can read and whether she reads the Kigiryama New Testament. “No, I cannot read! But I   thank God for my grandchildren and her   friends. We hold a Bible Study meeting here every Wednesday. She and other   brethren read the word of God to me and to others who cannot read. It is so good   to hear the Bible read in my   language! I wish that this word had come when I was young!” she concludes

 I can imagine her reaction when she finally reads The Giryama Full Bible; Tears of joy. Run for the Bibleless this year is   special as the Giryama Complete Bible will   be dedicated. We do not have it on our hands yet. We are calling upon you   to  participate in Run For The Bibleless, pray and offer financial support to enable The   Giryama community to finally read   their full Bible.
