“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…”(Matt. 28:19). It was a Sunday afternoon when two Masai men came to visit the Arusha church of Christ. The worship service had just ended a few hours earlier and the members were on their way home. Isaac and I remained behind for some church work. After introducing themselves, they told us that were there here to find the church of the Bible. When we asked how they came to find us they told us they had seen one of our advertisements attached to one of the electric poles in town. The advertisement reads,“if you want to know the truth and become a member of the one true church of the Bible visit the church of Christ nearest you.”
So, we sat down and started to answer their Bible questions. Interestingly, they wanted to know why there are so many churches today. After a long study of the scriptures they were able to realize the difference that exists in the denominational world and the church we read about in the Bible.
We continue studying with them and they have invited us to come to their home and study with their other family members, including their wives and children. It has been a blessing for us to meet these people and to be able to share with them the loving message of God.
These two men are very interested in learning the truth and it is our hope that soon they will obey the gospel. Please keep these precious souls in your prayers; they are very close to the kingdom. Please pray for Isaac and me as we continue to persuade them concerning the scriptures.
