No.46 – SAFEGUARDING; NEW AND REVISED PAGES; KENYA INDEPENDENT; CAR, BURUNDI; MYANMAR

We have added a new SAFEGUARDING policy PAGE after recent problems in the Charities sector world-wide – at our Trustees meeting last Friday. We discussed this matter, also rejoiced that we expect very soon to have our income tax returned for UK Donors to Barclay’s Bank and welcomed my friend Gwyn to our small group of Trustees.

PLEASE READ THIS NEW PAGE AND EMAIL COMMENTS TO ME AT mlloyd3000@gmail.com and also the temporary one called ‘INDEPENDENT EASYBIBLES’. I have also revised ‘FACEBOOK PUBLIC GROUPS’ and need soon to update ‘POOREST 20 NATIONS’.

Camp Rhino, North Uganda is rapidly becoming the centre of easyBibles led by Ndomoro – more about this next week. There Narcisse from the Central African Republic is doing Sango, French for Africa and Lingala – working with Deborah from Kinshasa and her friend Bisoke from Bunio – also from DRC but near to the border with Buruni – all be email and Fb.

—————————————————–
Back in Kampala – Seme is helping Landros from Burundi revise easyKirundi. We’ve just sent them £150 for a printer.
I’ve just been chatting on Fb to a new friend in Myanmar – who also knows Seme.

More very soon about the other 20 nations, in Africa and Asia – that we’re dealing with, so far about INDEPENDENCE-I’LL TRY TO UPDATE THIS LIST – FACEBOOK HAS DONE SO MUCH TO EXPAND THIS MINISTRY!

—————————————————–
We shall update you about our second site – read recent updates – or perhaps a blog will

No.45 – Fasting Wed 6th Feb – vision embraced by Kenya; Tanzania; Pakistan

I’ve just received this wonderful email from Bishop Isaac Makokha in Kenya :

‘Hello again dear Rev Martin.

Just to inform you that I yesterday held a Kenya team meeting and we
agreed on the following.

1) My Epson printer to be given to easyNtombi team and was given to their
leader, Pst Joseph.
2) Myself to share with Caren one printer which will be currently
serving 4Languages (Dholuo, Lukhayo, Marachi and Swahili)
3) Pst Nashon with Sarah Emase leading easyAteso to share their 1
Epson with new easySonga team.
4) Card David to share with new nearby teams in Gusii land – we had a
phone chat with him and he agreed with this new vision for 2018.

Now Rev Martin – the rest remaining 8 teams shall wait till your
accounts be set for them next, as you will be starting with the first
four to be send 400 pounds on 16th Feb for their Epson’s.

1) Ibrahim – easyLunyala
2) Marion – easyLusamia
3) Godfrey Juma – easyLunyole
4) Gosfrey Wesonga – easyLuwanga

Rev Martin thanks for your continues support for KENYA.

————————————————————
The £400 will be to give half the cost of Epson printers to the 4 teams mentioned – this is less generous than i was with Uganda and certainly less than i gave Camp Rhino (where they need solar panels costing $450 each – so far i’ve bought them one plus five printers for this population of 2 million people – mainly widows and children from South Sudan). Bp Isaac is strongly leading his nation forward in easyBibles into INDEPENDENCE.

————————————————————
We are encouraged by similar leadership by my friend of nearly 14 years, Revd Samuel Mpanilehi in Musoma, TANZANIA as well as new friends in PAKISTAN. Please pray for similar conversations starting in Lusaka, Zambia.

————————————————————
Before the new site www.independent.easyBibles.com is ready – i already have 600 members of my Facebook open group ‘Independent.easyBibles.com’ including about 100 Catholics from US.

No.44 – Camp Rhino moves forward; Juba and Yei; India & Kenya; CAR

The new site may not be ready for another month – but it is already making an impact! Praise God.

The featured map is of the placing or 5 new Epson printers at the HQ of Camp Rhino refugee camp -2 million mums and children, few men, mainly from South Sudan.

I’ll soon publish a growing list of nations involved and teams

Just been to doctors who says i look a lot better. We now have at least 20 teams following INDEPENDENCE in Camp Rhino, Kampala/Uganda, Juba, Yei, Kenya, CAR, Manipur, Nagaland, Nepal….

Ready for action

No.43 – Christmas greetings; www.independent.easyBibles.com; Poorest nations; work nearly finished; field-testing

Happy Christmas to all prayer partners!

My second site www.independent.easyBibles.com will soon be constructed to become the Premier site for easyBibles. It is described in Update 42 below and starts in mid-January.

I’m working on my list of POOREST NATIONS to email to anyone interested. Please contact me at mlloyd3000@gmail.com

Both sites will get updates but only www.easyBibles.com will have a Donations button.

I’ll not raise money for independent sites. Indeed this is the FUTURE without Martin Lloyd -as many missions have stated in their AIMS
But the work of easyBibles will continue till Christ returns – as gospels etc are modified after field-testing and new editions are needed -but the COPYRIGHT MUST STAY WITH THE NATIONS CONCERNED.

The featured photo from Shanghai shows field-testing by a young man of easyChinese with a middle-aged lady in church’

Happy New Year to us all

Jan comment – this second site is proving so meaningful in East Africa that we shall accept the method and work on it next Monday Jan 18th – namely www.independent.easyBibles.com

No.42 – Conference works wonders; ideas for new site; INDEPENDENCE

This Kampala Conference was led well by Bp Isaac; supported by Monique and Ocen but showed us all clearly that the concept of ‘African leader for easyBibles’ does not make sense – except perhaps for Bill Gates. Who else could hope to fund the travelling involved?

So, my initial suggestions for change are :-

1) for our new website in Jan that we start with a title such as :

www.independent.easyBibles.com .

2) teams having their work moved to this new site would : –
a) have finished, checked and field-tested 4 gospels + Acts at level A
b) have finished, checked and field-tested the 4 Volumes of ‘veryeasy’ Gospel Stories
c) by selling booklets and attracting the support of their churches – have become financially independent.

The whole process belongs to the nation doing the work
and the back covers of each booklet must contain words similar too : –
‘Copyright 2017 Tanzanian easyBibles team’ and ‘www.easyBibles.com’

EACH LANGUAGE TEAM IS THEN EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO SELL AND PRINT – SUPPORTED BY THEIR LOCAL CHURCHES (who will eventually take full control) WHILE THE DONORS MOVE ONTO NEW LANGUAGE PROJECTS.

No.41 – Fasting Wed; Hospital for 3 days; IDEAS FOR 2ND SITE; SKYPE

We thank our kind friend on Anglesey for adding the Facebook image. In January, we shall explore news ways for a second website – as www.easyBibles.com is now full! PRAISE GOD!! All contributions/suggestions to mlloyd3000@gmail.com soon please.

I NEVER WENT TO AFRICA ON MONDAY – INSTEAD TO ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY IN BANGOR HOSPITAL.
I left again late yesterday and have encouraged the Kampala Conference by email etc. I just phoned Monique and she has served lunch to 28 people.
I rejoice that most of my work in East Africa (home to the world’s poorest nations) is finished or left in safe African hands. I shall continue to do what i can from outside – possibly Addis Ababa – but i’ve had no joy with anti-malaria tablets.

So : –
1. Apologies for late Fasting Wed Update
2. Let’s surround Bp Isaac & wife Caren; Monique & Ocen, Cardinal David, Narcisse & Manasse and Patrick, Kabaale and Seme and many other experienced leaders with OUR PRAYERS – MORE INFORMATION VERY SOON.

THIS WILL INCLUDE THE MANY TRANSLATIONS STARTED BY THESE 28 PEOPLE AND OTHERS STARTING RECENTLY IN PLACES TOO FAR FROM KAMPALA -SUCH AS KINSHASA.

MY OWN SMALL TROUBLES (CATHETER) SHOULD BE SORTED BY EASTER WHEN IT WILL BE MY PRIVILEGE TO VISIT ASIA AGAIN.

TILL THEN LET’S STRUGGLE TO ADD SKYPE TO OUR ARMOURY – FOR CLOSER CONVERSATIONS ACROSS CONTINENTS.
