I put the clips together and had my language helpers work with me to put together a script that adequately explained each scene. I then narrated the whole 23-minute movie in nDo. I’m pretty sure this is the first movie in their language… apart from the clips they take with their cell phones.
We debuted the movie during our recent literacy meeting. About 20 different people from across the nDo-speaking area were here for the meeting and got to watch the movie. They loved it. One man said, “As I watched and heard our talk, I could feel fire in my belly.”
Hopefully these people will one day feel that same burning “in their belly” as they hear God’s word in their language for the first time. Lord-willing, that day is coming soon. Finishing the literacy materials is a big step in preparing people to read God’s Word. More on this in another blog. For now, enjoy the show:
