A Glimmer of Hope

By StoryRunners

A glimmer of hope for the Haka* people

This summer, we joined forces again with E3, a partner mission agency based in Dallas, Texas. We sent one of our team leaders, Hallie, to revisit the *Haka people, an un-engaged and un-reached people group who live in a restricted country in Central Asia.

After a challenging two-week session, we were delighted to see encouraging improvements among the participants. When Maria, one of the participants, told the story of Jesus calming the storm to her son, she experienced a ‘breakthrough’ moment. She told our team, “Suddenly, the story came alive to me for the first time. It was like I was sitting on the boat with the disciples, feeling the water on my face.” We are now planning to complete the project in early 2018 to finish the story set and continue our training with E3 partners in Bible story development. We praise God for this glimmer of hope. Please also pray that the Haka participants will be steadfast in sharing the gospel among their people.

“I was losing joy in serving God but this trip helped me get the joy back!” exclaimed one of the 25 students who participated at our Rocky Mountain Summer Mission.  Look out for more exciting stories on this in our next edition!

Praise & Prayer

PRAISE:
1) Praise God for the recently concluded second part of the Haka School of Storying, for the changed hearts among our participants there, for their renewed commitment to using oral Bible stories, and for their partnership with us.

2) Praise God for the recently concluded Cru17 US Staff Conference in Colorado that our team attended from July 16 – 24.

3) Praise God for our summer mission, which finished earlier this month. Our 32 participants learned about oral Bible storying and shared their faith all over the Rocky Mountain National Park using Bible stories. 

PRAYER

1) Pray for our upcoming SOS trips in the fall: for preparation by our nationals in the field, safety and health for our travel teams, and for full funding for each language. 

2) Pray for the 31 African leaders we trained to be School of Storying Assistant Trainers to continue to develop their storying skills and gain more experience.
