Family Scripture Engagement Packs in Malawi
The Bible Society of Malawi is distributing family Scripture engagement packs throughout the country to help families come together to study God’s Word.
After reports from churches that many of their congregations were not interacting with the Bible as a family, it became apparent that there was a need for families as a whole to be studying the Bible together. Not only does this help individual believers read the Bible, but it helps children brought up in these families to grown in their faith and learn to read the Bible every day.
The Bible Society has partnered with Scripture Union in Malawi to develop the pack. Within a Scripture pack there is a Bible, a Children’s Bible and a Scripture Union Bible Reading Guide.
One of those who has received a Scripture pack is Mrs Dornad Mhlanga, pictured, who lives in the Mzuzu area. Mrs Mhlanga had heard that when a person reads the Bible, they get peace from God’s Message and is now excited to learn more about the impact the Bible can have on her life. She is also looking forward to studying the Bible with her family and helping her children to grow in their own Christian faiths.
Pray for the families who receive Scripture engagement packs:
- Pray for Mrs Mhlanga and her family as she begins to use the family Scripture engagement pack. Pray for parents as they seek to bring their children up in the Christian faith.
- Pray that God would open the hearts of children and that they would come to know Him at a young age.
- Pray that the financial support would be made available to supply these Scripture engagement packs to as many people as possible.
- Pray that more families would be studying Scripture together as a family in our own country. Pray for Christian parents as they seek to raise their children in the Christian faith.
