A few weeks ago, we told you about John Kapuku, a 90 year-old Matengo-speaking man who received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. You can read more about him here. Three months after this, he passed away and went to be with the Lord.
After he passed away, we received a phone call from one of the Matengo translators, Eda Lupogo, and a Matengo pastor. They told us that in the last few months of his life, he was full of joy such as he had never experienced before he found the love of Jesus. He said that he had seen Jesus through the Word of God, and also through those of us who brought him food and clothing.
Since the day we first visited him months ago to give him food and clothing, Eda had been going to see him to pray with him, care for him, and read the Bible with him. Praise God for John’s life and for the peace, love, and joy he experienced before he died!
The Matengo pastors give thanks to God for their people coming to Jesus and their lives being transformed, just like John’s. Please continue to pray for those working on the rest of the Matengo translation so that they might have access to all of God’s Word in their heart language!
