A wake up call from Jonah

Written by Joey M.

Nyiha language being read
In early April some of the team made a visit to Mbozi, which is in the Nyiha language area, to deliver 200 trial copies of the books of Jonah and Ruth. Towards the end of the day — as people were getting tired — we asked one participant to read chapter four from the book of Jonah. He was surprised to be asked to read without any warning. But his reading was wonderful! He was clear and fluent. Even though many of the participants were tired, to our surprise we saw participants smiling, raising their heads, looking up at the reader. Occasionally you could see some of them nodding and laughing. We saw that reading the text in the Nyiha language changed the mood of the people completely. After closing the session, I approached our host pastor and asked him about his feelings. He said, “I cannot tell you what kind of joy I have after hearing the word of God read in my own language. I’m so happy!” Then he continued laughing.
