In November, SAM member Mike Anderson participated in an oral Bible storying workshop with pastors of a local Indigenous community in Peru. The pastors are developing an oral curriculum for their Bible institute. They spent several days poring over the details of the story of the Fall and translating it into the Shipibo language.
One pastor commented that although he had studied at Bible school before, studying theological principles in context through stories allowed him to understand better the principles and how they fit together in God’s Story.
Pray for Mike and the pastors as they have another workshop this month to continue the translation.
