Bruce Williams' Staff Support Fundraiser

Several years ago, while working in gypsy villages in Ukraine, we discovered that many of the people we were working with were repeating decisions that they had made at an earlier date.  As we began to try to understand what was happening we discovered that we were not communicating in the same way that they communicate with each other.

We came back to the United States and began to research how to reach oral learners.  We discovered that oral learners learn, store, and pass on information differently than print communicators. Through a workshop at Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary, and several key individuals within the orality movement we began to understand how to be more effective in working in oral cultures.  We also learned that oral learners are in every country, and every social and educational strata.

Since then we have had opportunities to work with oral learners, and train leaders in Ethiopia, Panama, the Middle East and even here in the United States. 

One project in Ethiopia has reproduced over 1600 Bible storying groups with some groups reproducing to the seventh generation. 

Your continuing support will allow us to continue to move into new areas, including the Middle East, Indochina, Russia, Zambia and God willing back to Ukraine.

  • This was a theology class

    Posted a week ago

    Last month we were invited to train a group of young people, for another organization, who are preparing to leave for an area hostile to the Gospel.  After the five day training, the participants asked if they could tell us what the training had meant to them.  We are always happy to hear from our participants, and determine how we can better serve them in future trainings.

    One trainee told us: "I have many things I am trying to figure out how to incorporate into our ministry. Then you come with the oral strategy, and suddenly I can see all the pieces, like islands, being connected by the orality river. This is one of the best trainings that we have had for the field. 

    Another said, "I thought we were just going to learn some stories, but you have taught a theology class through story"

    After this course I have the expectation of lots of rich times with others, one on one. I just feel the newness of the Scriptures, and the newness of my relationship with the Lord.  The Lord’s relationship with me is refreshed, and I am anticipating more of the same. 

    Many people think that teaching the Bible through story is something for children.  We know that teaching the Bible through story allows oral people to meditate on God's Word, to share with their friends and family, and allows the establishment of reproducing churches in many unreached areas of the world.

    Please keep these young people in your prayers as they are even now leaving for their respective fields of ministry.

  • Arts for a Better Future

    Posted a week ago

    The entire e3 Orality Team was privileged to participate in Arts for a Better Future conference in Ft. Worth.  This workshop will allow us to integrate the arts of our select people groups into their evangelism, discipleship, worship, leadership development and church planting activities.  Using the specific arts that speak to a people group, helps make the Gospel more understandable to those we are trying to reach.

    We are excited by the response to the Gospel that we have seen in Africa, and are looking forward to begin working in Siberia in November.

    We have recently learned that the group we were able to train in April/May have been successfully using oral methods to reach out to Syrian refugee families.  Praise God for the needs that are being met.
