Afar of Northern Africa

(AH-far) – As the rain waters the earth so that it brings forth fruit, God’s Word is bringing fruit among the Afar! A few believers recently downloaded the Afar Bible app and shared it with others, so many are now daily feeding on the Word of God. From their religious upbringing, they are familiar with the names of Moses, Noah, and Joseph. But the stories they learned were incomplete and often altered. They are excited to have direct access to the original stories. They are also using the app in sharing the good news. Nonbelievers love the Book of Proverbs and will readily listen to God’s Word. Others, knowing that the judgment is coming, are interested in discovering what will actually happen in the last days. This they find in the Book of Revelation. Believers are reporting unprecedented openness as they use the Audio Bible app to introduce friends to Jesus. Praise God for the reliability of His Word! Ask that many of these seekers will become believers. “So my word that comes from my mouth will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do” (Isaiah 55:11 CSB).
