What kind of 'Treasure' can be found in a land of violent dispute...

By Julie Oosterhouse

MNN

We’ve all done it: let stuff get in the way of our relationships. We fight about things that don’t matter even when we know they don’t really matter. And, we know it’s wrong.

But when you don’t know God, where is your reference point? How are you supposed to know these things don’t really matter? How are you supposed to grasp that the land and livestock you’re fighting over doesn’t belong to you or your enemy?

That’s the struggle for 12 tribes in Northern Kenya where World Mission is hoping to distribute The Treasure in order to help them know Jesus.

Greg Kelley recently sent us this information from the field: “We are here in Africa. One of our main areas of Treasure distribution is in northern Kenya where there are about 12 largely-unreached people groups–tribes that border Southern Sudan and Ethiopia and even over toward Somalia.

“One of the things we’re being told is that the great challenge to impacting these people with the Gospel is the barrier of tribalism and what that represents for history. For generations, literally, these people have been at war, and there have been conflicts and disputes [over] land issues and also with animal issues in the area.

“What we’re being told is that until they begin to embrace peace with one another, it’s such a challenge for the Gospel to go in there.

“So, please pray for this area of Northern Kenya, as the Word of God goes forth through The Treasure and the various languages, that the people just put down their hostilities toward one another and embrace the idea of loving one another in the name of Jesus so that the Gospel can go forth.”
