The Maasai language is very different from Swahili.  We are able to purchase Bibles for the Maasai people in their language.  These cost approximately $5.75 if we buy 500 at a time, or about $9.00 for 100 or more.

   Daniel from the Maasai area, said that a man was walking on the road, and found a "Earth's Final Warning" magazine, (in Swahili language) lying n the mud.  He picked it up, dusted it off as well as he could, and read it.  He is now attending church each week.  "Earth's Final Warning", and "Behold He Cometh" were shipped in a 40' container to Kenya.  These were provided by Cornerstone Publishing in Washington. 

Leona, a nurse ansethetist that volunteered in Kenya in early 2016, is standing with a group of Maasai men.  She visited them and did health education, and other classes with them.  They are standing in front of prophecy charts, that the Maasai workers are using to teach people about the Bible. 

   Most of the Maasai are nomadic throughout the year.  They live in kraals - small clusters of cow-dung huts that are constructed by the women.  Milk, either fresh or curdled, is the basic Maasai food.  It is often mixed with blood, tapped from a cow's jugular.  When these people accept the gospel, they make dramatic changes in the lives, in their way of eating, in their entire lifestyle. 

This Maasai lady is listening intently to the message of Jesus.

   The Maasai people have a reputation for being a very fierce, primitive people.  They also are very primitive in their spiritual lives.  The Maasia people  that we have met, have been very friendly and warm to us.  They are asking for many more Maasai Bibles.  When we started the work in Kenya 5+ years ago, we met approximately 10 people that were Christians.  Now with the 2 Maasai groups that we work with, there are over 150 people that have become Christians.  They in turn, are beginning to work in other Maasai areas to teach their people about Jesus Christ.
