The Story Scarf Vision - Telling the Stories of Jesus with your Neighbor
Imagine if you did not know how to read the Bible because it was not in your native language or you never had an opportunity to learn to read. How would you come to know the truths about the Bible? Many people in Africa today are in this very situation. They want to know and learn about the Bible, but no one has explained it to them in their own language. Now imagine that you have an image of a story from the Bible, and someone tells you a story that can change your life. Suddenly, a new world of hearing and speaking the truths of the Bible becomes so much more real.
This is what is happening with the development of the Story Scarf! The Story Scarf has the images of 12 stories from the life of Christ, and as a new Christian comes to know Christ, the 12 powerful stories from the scarf are used to teach them about the character of Jesus. As they learn these stories and how to tell them, we see men and women, boys and girls memorizing the stories of the Bible and sharing these truths with others. Our goal is to have one million disciples of Christ in the Nazarene church in Africa by the year 2020. To do so, we know it will take everyone sharing their faith. This simple tool is revolutionizing the way people share the good news with others by giving everyone a way to be involved in evangelism.
We hope to distribute these story scarfs to more than 5,000 people in more than 20 countries of Africa. The cost is only about $3 USD each, yet the impact to changed lives is priceless.

Thanks for your support, and we trust God will use your gifts to spread his Word to every tribe and tongue that have not yet heard of the great love of Christ.
