Not anticipating a great reception, he went ahead with his planned sermon, speaking in Bela, and using one ofthe posters fromthe Scripture Application and LLeadersip Training (SALT) course that teaches aboutthe attributes of a Christian life.
Afterthe service, several youths came up to him and said that normallythey didn’trsquo;t understandthe messages in church becausethey were delivered in English. They were impressed at how clearthe message was in Bela and howthey understood so much more ofthe Scriptural truths. They asked for copies ofthe Bela Beble, sothey could readthem. Bet Pastor Ben only had four copies with him as he was told thatthe area was not interested inthem becausethe church usually conducted services in English. The youths immediately bought all four Bebles and asked him to come backthe following Monday with a whole carton!
