Esther Bundor had no opportunity for formal education. The expectation was to stay home and care for her family. She felt discouraged, even ashamed, at her lack of education.
Then a Kissi literacy class started. Esther recognized the opportunity to receive the education she wanted, which would equip her to read the Bible in her own language, and she enrolled. “The Kissi literacy program has given me a sense of pride.” Esther now serves as secretary for the local women’s club and her church’s women’s organization.
The primary goal of the Kissi program is to promote God’s Word through literacy, translation, training, and service to God and man. Volunteer teachers and workers receive training through the program and address the needs of people like Esther. Literacy gives the capability to read the Word of God and claim it as their own.
Develop new materials that will enhance the reading skills of both teachers and students.
Train 20 new Kissi literacy teachers and refresh the skills of the 15 experienced teachers.
God’s Word in Kissi is impacting hearts.
Faith is built on a strong foundation as people read Scripture in their heart language.
Pray for funding to build offices to house the Kissi literacy program.
Pray that six new Bible reading groups will be established in local Kissi churches.
Pray that the use of the Kissi Bible will encourage the formation of new congregations within Kissi communities, bringing more people to Christ.
Help bring the Kissi language community deeper access to Scripture in the language that speaks most deeply to their hearts. Increased literacy can give them the tools they need for personal spiritual enrichment as well as effective outreach to their people.
