One of our co-workers is Ellen Ombati, a missionary with NMSI. She and Ruth are collaborating on a new story-based children’s curriculum and have previously worked together with sunday school teacher’s training. Ellen also works with some of the mamas at Nasha’s Creations. Here’s an excerpt from an email Ellen sent us recently:
The mamas told me each of the three stories that were told in Sunday School the past three weeks. These were taught by the Sunday School teachers there! They told me what the kids did, the songs they learned and even that the kids were coming home preaching to their dad … . There are still some who are not very sure how to teach, but have the right heart for God and for the kids.
Earlier, Ellen had told us that some of the men who teach have been practicing reading scripture aloud so they can read fluently instead of haltingly. We spent a lot of time talking about the importance of that at the seminar at the Narok congregation on October 11.
It sounds like some of the seeds we’ve been sowing have been sprouting and are starting to bear fruit!
