Communities where He is least known

Those in mud houses

Mud houses are a common sight in southern Tanzania. In many of the villages where Christ is not known, the people are used to the constant maintenance that such houses require. Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 3:13–14 are: “Whatever we build on this foundation will be tested by fire… We will be rewarded if our building is left standing.” Without Christ, it will be impossible. The Church is called to build. Together, let us build communities which will stand on the Day of Judgment. We build by witnessing, sharing from our own lives and giving of ourselves. People in these communities go through the motions many times. They wake up, repair their fishing nets, go out on the fishing boat or dhow, and return with just enough to last the day. Help us by praying that they will want more — more of life and, ultimately, Life himself: Jesus Christ.
