PhotoApproximately 40% of the new believers had been animists, and 5% had been Muslims. The JESUS Film was shown in the Bari and Kakwa languages to the Kakwa, Kaliko, and Pojulu tribes. Follow-up of the new believers will be handled by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the Sudan Pentecostal Church, the African Inland Church, the Church of God, the Gospel Apostolic Church, and the Episcopal Church of Sudan. A total of 600 bibles were distributed in the Bari language.

The main goal of our discipleship training centered on the following paragraph:

Church leaders must fully comprehend the fact that being a follower of Christ means that each of their lives must be surrendered to Him. Each person must strive towards righteous living for His sake. Jesus is our hope for glory. All people that believe in Jesus have gained the right to serve Him.

Lesson Outline

1. The Surrendered Life
In order to become a follower of Christ you must be willing to surrender your life to Him (Matthew 16:24). This surrendered life involves the following:

a) Death to Sin (1 Peter 2:18-24)
b) Fellowship with Christ (Romans 6:5-7)
c) Rendering of Unquestioning Service (John 4:34)
d) Submission to God’s Will (John 7:17)

2. Righteous Living for Christ’s Sake

In our relationship with our Master we must have righteous lives because of our obedience to Him. (Luke 6:22-23; Matthew 6:19, 10:22, 37, Philippians 1:29).

3. Righteous Living is our Hope of Glory

(Romans 5:1, 1 Peter 1:2, Titus 2:13, Revelations 1:7)

4. Serving our Master

When you become a follower of Jesus, you gain the right to serve Him (Ephesians 4:11-15).

5. A Call to Take Your Stand

Everyone was asked after every training session to repeat the following words spoken by the training facilitator:

“Dear Lord, I believe that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross and were raised from the dead. I know I have sinned and need forgiveness. I turn from my sins and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for saving me. I had the opportunity to meet the Master. Amen”
