Tim is in Morafeno today to meet with Rivo and record the third lesson and possibly the fourth. The Malagasy New Testament and the first two lessons have been tested in AKZ. The card works well but a new file naming scheme will help them navigate between the books and lessons.
As the group in AKZ is solidifying their identity, some are choosing to abstain from praying with the group, others are enduring, still others are choosing to join and commit to baptism. The timing could not be better for the leadership classes scheduled for later this month. Once these men who aspire to the work of an elder are approved by the group in keeping with the qualifications from 1 Timothy 3 they will enter into the class. The lessons will review much that they have already learned and will examine the nuts and bolts of “church.”
