E3 Partners is sending out more mission trips over the next couple of months, including one to people in South Sudan with no written language.
In a village in Africa, a five-year-old boy stands surrounded by a group of people. The words he speaks have no written equivalent, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ is in them.
Jeff Johnston of e3 Partners says, “And in their native language, he’s sharing a story about Jesus healing the crippled man. And he’s sharing the story with these people. In the end, you can see in the video how everyone is captivated by it, and he shares the whole story. And then you hear them in their own native language at the end say ‘Praise be to God!’”
The South Sudan Trip
That’s why Johnston is so excited about the upcoming e3 Partners missions’ trip to South Sudan. “There’s unreached people groups there that are 99%, oral only meaning that if you hand them a Bible, they’re not going to know what to do with it. Because ultimately, their communication and their learning come through orality, it comes through speaking.”
E3 Partners has experienced orality teams that go to oral cultures, tell them the Gospel in their own languages, and share biblical stories with them. This is not a new program; Johnston says these teams have been doing this for over a decade.
