Those Eyes – Weekly Inspiring Image
This gorgeous little girl lives in a village near Lake Albert in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Once known as Zaire, this huge and troubled nation is still recovering from what some people call “Africa’s World War”. A war fought for power and wealth, much like the European wars of the 20th Century, with Uganda and Rwanda on one side and Zimbabwe, Namibia, Angola and Chad on the other. Many churches in DRC are doing all they can to support Bible translation projects into the languages of their people. Jean Pierre Tuluba, a translator working on his own language, Budu-Nita, talks about the need to persevere with his work in spite of the many challenges. “In the Bible it says that we should not pray to God just to remove the trials, but to face them with perseverance under His grace. That’s what comforts us now. Translating the Bible into my language will help my people know and fear God.” Watch the complete interview on thewordislife.net
