Spreading God’s Word
Last week, we finished formatting the 2009 Scripture Calendars and sent them to the printer in Conakry. We expect them to be finished soon and ready for distribution. This year we are printing 4755 total calendars. One calendar is in the Susu language, another in Maninka, another in Pular, and the last includes both French and English. These calendars will be used by over nineteen missions and/or missionary families throughout Guinea as a means of sharing the Gospel. If each calendar touches ten lives, which is certainly possible if it is hanging in a prominent place in a family home, then these calendars could impact up to 50,000 lives! The theme for the 2009 calendar is God’s Law and Justification by Faith. The first ten months each deal with one of the Ten Commandments. The last two months are drawn from Romans 3, and explain the purpose of God’s Law (to reveal our sinfulness and need for a Savior) and God’s provision of righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ. The calendars include artwork for each month illustrating the teaching of the verse. Please pray that there would be no problems with the printing of these calendars. Pray that God would use them greatly to share the Gospel with thousands of people throughout Guinea.
