No.20 – Africa 2017 part 6 – List of easylanguages involved; Asian Conference in 2018

We are very grateful for this list for East Africa and note it is gradually increasing :

Marachi, Lukhayo, Swahili(for Kenya) and Ekegusii – already started by Bp Isaac (Busia, Kenya) and Cardinal David (Kisii)
Kinyarwanda, Kinyamurenge and Kirundi – already started or encouraged by Revd Celestin and his wife Liberatha in Rwanda/Burundi.

Kamba, Meru, Masai, Gikuyu & Somali from Chaplains and friends in Kijabe.

Dholuo (for Kenya) from Caren in Kisumu.

Then in Busia, Kenya we were much encouraged by Cardinal Protus and Bp Isaac’s church.
Seline helped by Bp Isaac agreed to start easyTeso.

On to Busia, Uganda where Bp Wilson Waswa told us that the joint Lugwe+Lusania NT will be published soon.

Back to KAMPALA and two exciting days:
CONFERENCE on Tuesday 2nd May – 8 of us discussing :

Sango (CAR), French for Africa, Lingala, Zande, Juba Arabic, Arabic & Bari (South Sudan)

CONFERENCE on Wednesday 3rd May we continued talking about above plus Luganda as taxi-manager’s Pastor Joseph had joined us from N W Kampala.

THEN WE TRAVELLED TO PASTOR JOSEPH’S CHURCH FOR A WORSHIP SERVICE WITH ABOUT 50 PEOPLE ON A WED AFTERNOON. WE LAID HANDS ON BISHOP ISAAC AND ASKED GOD TO BLESS HIS LEADERSHIP AS AFRICAN LEADER FOR EASYBIBLES. AMEN!

On the plane home i met Wendy with her Dutch partner and small child. She promised to help check easyGikuyu….

I shall persevere with emails with people from more distant contacts who were unable to meet with us this time – particularly Frank and Sauli from Tanzania (re Tanzanian Swahili & Dholuo) and Henok from Ethiopia (Amharic). But Henok has finished Mark at level A and is seeking friends to start the many languages of Ethiopia. Also we, of course continue with Malawi, Mozambique, Madagascar, Zambia, Algeria, Namibia, Lesotho, S Africa, Namibia, Eritrea, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Zimbabwe…..

TOTAL NO OF LANGUAGES MOVED FORWARD FOR EAST AFRICA = 26 approx, so far – from 25th April to 3rd May 2017 – PRAISE GOD!!

Similarly, Ps Khupkam Vaiphei (easyVaiphei) in Manipur has found a volunteer to start a second language there. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE ASIAN CONFERENCE EARLY NEXT YEAR!

I realise that the feature image of a child’s rainbow should have 7 colours and lacks indigo. Bp Isaac told me that Kenya is leading the world in accepting gay people. Amen!
