The students at Ami have been practicing sharing the gospel through oral stories using visual images to accompany their descriptions, rather than reading off a script or including a literacy component. Oral communication is frequently how information is shared in many indigenous communities.

This challenge was shared by one of the teaching missionaries during a week of training for the indigenous students at Ami to prepare for their missions trips to other indigenous communities during the last week of April.
Praise God for this opportunity the students had to share the gospel and the kingdom culture of God. Please pray for continued wisdom and discernment as they try to adapt to sharing the good news to an indigenous community that is unlike their own culture. Pray for opportunities for them to grow in sharing their faith.
