Ryan and Elna Mitchell

sent out by Grace Fellowship Pretoria to plant churches among the Ndo people

In 2004, a letter was hand delivered to the Tartaglias in Mibu. The letter was from a neighbouring language group, the nDo people, asking for a missionary to be sent to them. It is now 16 years later, and we’re finally about to start with Bible teaching in nDo. A lot happened in those 16 years, to get our team to this point.

And here we are! You can read here about the normal process we follow – while Ryan and I are still busy with CLA, the team as a whole is moving into a new phase: Gospel Teaching!

The students received a copy of Jonah in nDo. What a moment – to see them reading Scripture in their own language for the first time

Tonight, we plan on having an information meeting, and showing a short video with photographs of the team and our village friends, to show them how much went into getting to this point. (You can watch a similar video here) And then we are planning on starting the Bible teaching next Monday, 9 November.

We have a teaching area set up close to our homes in a central spot…

Please pray for our team for energy and wisdom as we head into this new season of ministry. Pray for our children as they witness many people hearing the truth that they have been raised with since birth, for the first time. Pray for our village friends, that their hearts would be good soil.

2 Corinthians 4:15 “For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.”

Praise the Lord with us, giving thanks for all He has done to prepare us, and sustain us to get us to this point. And praise Him for preparing the hearts of those who will believe!
