Transforming lives, churches, communities...

 

We have received many frankly astonishing testimonies from those who are overseeing Rooted in Jesus, from the group leaders and from the group members themselves.

‘There has been an eruption of spiritual growth and strong faith amongst many Christians in the parishes which have been practising the Rooted in Jesus course’, Isaiah Chambala wrote from Arusha deanery, Tanzania. ‘The testimonies of the groups, their cheerfulness and generosity, their gentleness and desire to know the word of God – causes me to be in debt to them,’ Jacob Lihhima reported after visiting the Kiteto groups. ‘Thanks to God I am again in Lichinga after seeing the miracles produced by the Holy Spirit in the Zambezia Ecclesiastical District,’ Amorim Rocha wrote from Mozambique. ‘There is tremendous transformation going on. 'Old ladies are giving testimonies of how they are being healed and touched by the Lord’s hand,' Cornelius Chalwe reported from Zambia.

When the first generation of groups in the Diocese of Kiteto, Tanzania, completed Rooted in Jesus we returned to Kibaya to meet with 300 existing and new group leaders. We asked how they had found the course. Almost without exception the group leaders said that they now had great confidence in God, that he was with them and was powerful to work through them. One said "I have a sense of God being with me, empowering me; and I had constantly prayed for this, and continue to pray for it." Another said "It has been an encouragement to me that God is with me as one of the first women leaders among the Masai." Many said they used to read the Bible "like a newspaper or magazine", but now read it and pray over it daily and find that it speaks to them. Some said that they have lost their fear; that they feel power in preaching; that they feel a love for their group members. When we asked about the memory verses, one after another they shared the ones which had changed their lives. Several said their churches are now full; one said his whole village has been transformed.

We asked about the group members. What has Rooted in Jesus done for them? One leader said that on the fourth lesson, ‘Who is Jesus?’, he had taught them the memory verse John 1.12, which says that to all who received him he gave power to become children of God. He said they hadn’t known that. They were just churchgoers, and they’d not heard of the Holy Spirit or realised any act of commitment was necessary. He had explained the verse and the whole group was filled with the Holy Spirit. Other leaders said their people had stopped worshipping the wrong god, had developed their own prayer life instead of just saying prayers in church, had been praying for the sick and seeing healings, and had stopped drinking, beating their wives, and using drugs and cigarettes. Some had been inspired to learn to read and write so they could read the Bible. Prayer was becoming normal in the villages. People were sharing their faith and others were coming to Christ. People have stopped putting ‘medicines’ on the fields for crops, and they are speaking out against witchcraft; one woman had been bitten by a snake and instead of going to the witchdoctor had come to the group for prayer – and been healed. Illiterate people are teaching others from the memory verses. One man used to do everything in the church but now can’t get a word in edgeways. A child who ‘used to fall down all the time’ was prayed for until he was healed, with the result that the whole family came to Christ and joined the group. A woman ‘with a very small voice’ was prayed for; she now sings in the choir. In one village an evangelist named Japhet told us how a Muslim had come into the church during a group meeting saying his feet were burning, and he didn't know what they were doing in there - but could he please join them? He gave his life to Christ. Another said that in one Masai village the elders still meet under the tree to make decisions, but they now pray over those decisions.

The long term aim of Rooted in Jesus is to see changed lives, changed churches and changing communities as people grow in faith and discipleship. Read some individual testimonies below,

In their own words: testimonies from group members in DR Congo
 
"I did not know that through RinJ session we take this opportunity to repent, but now when I discover this I become a blessing for my family and I bring the blessing home." Group member, Kipushi parish, Diocese of Katanga Nov 2016
“I like very much these teachings because they help us to solve the problem in the marriage, in our village, in a church and even in our life" - Veronica Mugo, Diocese of Katanga July 2016
"Brother KAPILA ZOMBE Felix said that the RinJ teaching created a new thing in him and gave him a spiritual tonic; changes were seen by the people nearby him and in his church they gave him opportunity to lead the Youth group" - James Mayundo, Kalemie July 2015
“After my training in Lubumbashi on how to use the Rooted in Jesus Christ programme, I went to Kolwezi for my final academic placement. I travelled by bicycle, and I have now been ministering there since April 5th 2014. When I arrived at Kolwezi I began to attend a church in my placement parish where there were 6 people. I decided to begin by teaching the Rooted in Jesus material every Sunday, and it captivated more and more people. After two months the number attending had grown to 45. God continued to help us by calling further people through healings and answered prayers. We have numerous testimonies, and today the church has at least 95 members and we have groups such as the choir, the prayer group, the Mother’s Union, the Boys Brigade and prayer cells each with their own leaders.”Catechist Joel Ngoy Makobo, group leader, Kolwezi June 2015
“I was lost and I had abandoned the church, but when I discovered the teaching of Rooted in Jesus I received the Lord Jesus for real. I used to dream about prostitutes, but through prayer and the teachings, I have to say that I am now completely free of this. I didn’t know how to share my faith or stand against witchcraft, but now I can do both these things. Certainly Jesus Christ has saved me.” - Erick, Kolwezi June 2015
“I was a great sinner: rude, insulting, arrogant and slanderous. However, after receiving the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ, Christ has truly saved me, and I now share good news with others so they too may be saved as I have been.” Astride, Kolwezi June 2015
“I was a self employed miner, searching for minerals. I was far too fond of brawling and drunkenness, and each time I did this I would dream that I was fighting against supernatural aliens – they were like wild beasts. I even had a child with a prostitute. After receiving the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ, I now share the good news of Jesus Christ. I now know to pray for myself and for others. I love Jesus Christ.” Isaac, Kolwezi June 2015
"I was lost and I was following wrong paths – for example adultery, lying, pride, and evil spirits. These spirits were in me, but after receiving Jesus Christ through the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ, I am saved. I am now going to serve God." Divine, Kolwezi June 2015
“I was a slanderer, adulterer and thief, and I had never loved the church. Today I have been saved through the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ, and I love Jesus Christ.” Felly, Kolwezi June 2015
“As for me, how these lessons make me grow! No one will separate me from Rooted in Jesusduring my life on this earth, because I do not think I can testify one minute and not the next. I have been awoken from the deep sleep and from the distractions in which I lived. May God bless the person to whom he revealed this programme!” Regina Kasima, group leader, Kipushi June 2015
“I thank God because he has shown his power in me since I had an accident and broke my pelvis. When I received the teaching from the Rooted in Jesus course, especially John 16.24, I prayed according to what it said. One night while I was asleep, I saw someone come in and cut my hip, and my leg fell out of my trousers, so I cried out to my wife that I have lost my leg, it has just been cut off! When I opened my eyes, I could feel no pain and all my limbs were there, healed – as they have remained to this day. So I can travel by motor bike either to church or to the hospital. My family are all saved, and we believe in Jesus Christ. He is our Lord and Saviour forever.” Kulita, Kipushi June 2015
“I am a soldier, and although I would go to church I had no foundation of faith. But with all these teachings that I have just received, I my faith is now founded on Jesus Christ. Me and my family, no one can snatch us from his hands. He is our only Lord and Saviour. We will feed on his words in the same way that we feed on real food.” Francois, Kipushi June 2015
“We divorced as a result of the anger which dominated our home. Now we have been saved through the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ, and we will remain forever attached to Jesus Christ.” Antoinette, Kipushi June 2015
“I am a pastor and preacher of the gospel, but I have always been weak. However, I now feel as if I have been vaccinated, so that I can exercise the ministry to which the Lord has called me. Already many have been saved, and have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. They are now united with him and will remain so throughout their lives, thanks to the teachings of Rooted in Jesus Christ. They are no longer ignorant. They were ensnared in the teachings of the world, and they want to leave this and base their lives on the teaching ofRooted in Jesus Christ.” Revd Ngosa, Kipushi June 2015

 

In their own words: testimonies from group members in Tanzania
These are some of the testimonies given by group members in Tanzania, sent to us by the diocesan coordinators:
In Africa point of view, testimony has power in it, it is an easy way of presenting a message to  audience or individuals. Recently I visited a group at Mazame parish just near Musoma town and found an interesting  testimony from three sisters who because of their parents divorce,  they remained alone at home, their father ran away from home. The life became very difficult to them, thus caused both of three decided to sell their bodies (prostitution) for their daily bread. They stayed in that life for a  long time, untill they heard about the love of God. The Family of one heart and mind [RinJ] meets near their home. One day one of them went to fetch water in one of nearest spring and saw people gathered in their neighbouring home. She went back home and tells other two about the gathering. They went together to hear what is going on. The word was about the Love of God without measure. It touched their hearts and gave them bad image of their parents. The message reminded them to love their parents. The message reminded them to love one another. They have now planted a church with  more than 130 Christians - Canon Jacob Robert, Regional Coordinator, Tanzania, December 2014
"We were late arriving in Lindi but a Rooted in Jesus group had gathered in the church to greet us. Lindi  is 95% Moslem so the Christians are a rather vulnerable minority. I asked them to share how RinJ had helped them – amazing answers were given: the Pastor said he need no longer worry about sending them to Bible School – Bible School had come to them in their group. One lady said that she was now reading her Bible every day and it was really helping her; another said that the memory verse and the studies were changing her so that even her neighbours had noticed she was different; another said that it was much easier to invie friends to a RinJ group than to church" - Linnet Smith, meeting with group members in the Diocese of Masasi, March 2014
“We visited Kirumi Church. One woman told us that before she gave her life to Jesus, her husband had left her with several children so she turned to prostitution. Then she came to Christ and gave up that way of life and prayed for her husband. Now he has come back and they are a family again." Linnet Smith, meeting with group members in the Diocese of Mara, February 2014
"A young boy of 13 years old, Joakim Chacha, whose parents are seriously traditionalists and still believe in ancestors gods,told us a story about his own life before he converted to become a Christian. He narrated to us his life at home: My father is a traditionalist god worshipper, he killed my mother and gave sacrifies to local gods. She died into my hands. We are 6 children from the my mother's womb. After the death of my mother, I joined Uncle's family where I am still living. My Uncle used take us to church. In church I met with the family of one heart and one mind and I joined them. I heard a lesson about how Jesus was crucified and died and on the third day He rose gain. In the group they said that there is no other Love like this of Jesus to take a cross for our salvation.This touches my life and I committed my life to the almighty God. From his heart, we saw God and we glorified God for what He has done to that young boy. We said, truly, the Lord comes to save" - Jacob Oyange, Mara, October 2013
“Judith Chitemo had been a delegate in 2011 and shared her testimony. Her marriage to Michael was not good. Following a time of ministry at the previous conference she received the Holy Spirit’s joy and power into her heart and she was like a new woman. When she returned home her husband could see such a change in Judith that he wanted to come to church. He now knows Jesus and he received the Holy Spirit too” – Hilary Buckingham reporting from the follouwp conference in the Diocese of Mpwapwa, September 2013
Simon Msonde (Kiteto) - “Before to receive my life to Jesus I had one big problem, my problem was anger. Every day I was quarrel with others and my wives, but since I started to learn the Word of God and to repent this sin I feel free. Now I have peace and joy to all and my friends they wonder as well and my wives trust that real Jesus has power and all of them are in a group”. Simon has now completed Rooted in Jesus and is now training as a deacon, along with 4 others from the first generation of groups.
Ester Ngau (Kiteto) - One day when I came back from the Church to study the Word of God my son started to cry continuously; all the night he cried. Next day my husband and brother in law told me that I am better to take the son to witchdoctor because he want grandfather name. I refused completely to go with my son to witchdoctor because I trust Jesus. After two days when my husband make preparation to find a hen to go with it to the witchdoctor I attended the lesson, and when the time of prayer started I told my group members about my problem. They prayed for my son, from that time my son stopped to cry. I told my husband that my son stopped to cry because we pray for him in the Church. From that time my husband give me more time to attend the lessons.
Abraham Dani (Kiteto)- For long time ago I was fear as well about witchdoctor to destroy my animals and my children and everything that I had, but when I started to learn the Word of God I don't fear anything. I have power to invite my friends who are the same age to come to Jesus, because I understand and I trust in him that there is no name has power than Jesus Christ. Jesus is my protector with all that he gave me. John 20:28-29.
Elizabeth Hudati (Kiteto) - This lesson help me to understand the Word of God as well, because we learn many things and we tried to define some difficult questions and we got the real answers. In the beginning I don't understand the word of God as well. Several time I was fall in sin with servants of God that have bad character. One day the servants of God came to our Boma. After praying in night the servant of God told me to make sex with him. I told him that this is sin and every time you preached why you convince me to do it? He told me that this is not sin because the Bible says that "Do not deny yourselves to each other" 1 Corinth 7:5. I agreed to make sex because who was telling me is the servant of God who knows, as well about Bible, but now I can't do like that because I know that verse is special for people who married. When she explained this she was crying continuously. James 4:7.

Leah Yakobo (Kiteto) - "More than five years I live with my husband without to get a baby. But when I started to learn the Word of God, I don't feel well because always I was feeling about baby. One day I ask my group members to pray for my problem. I remember very much the time of my group members were pray for me, from that time I conceived and now I have a baby. I thank God and I thank to all who made preparation of this lesson. John 16:24."

Paulina Msonde (Kiteto) - "In beginning before the group I was dreaming bad things always I was met with bad snakes in my dreaming and the day light real I was meeting with the snakes I had seen in the night. But when I started to learn the lesson I began dreaming about heaven and I meet with angels, I don't see again any kind of snakes, I can't leave this lesson forever I will learn the word of God. 1 Corinthians 10:13."
Isaiah Chambala (DMK): "If you want to know the value of this book, start yourself, with your family. I can tell you I also have followed this book with my family. So I have seen how this book has helped me myself and my family. When we were starting to pray in my family, my children, who are happy to sing and dance, when we come to the Word of God, all of them go to sleep. But this is the devil! My wife and myself we pray for our children and rebuke the evil spirits. We were sitting there, and one of our sons who is very funny, when he starts to sleep, he puts his hand on his head to keep his eyes open, but he sleeps! When he started to use this book, we discovered we had few Bibles in the house for the number of people, and they were all competing to be first to get the Bibles and read the verses. I am always hiding my Bible, because they can even tear the page out! We have been thinking of having some more Bibles, now they like to read it themselves. We are no longer forcing them.They still like to praise and to sing, but now they have started to be ambitious to read the Bible. This would be my challenge; that you start with yourselves.
"A small girl, called Tabitha Marwa, she  is in class five, she was explaining how her father and mother passed away by HIV/AIDS, left her, when she was very young with her step father. In the group, she explained how she experience the Love of God, in particular and different ways, when she was relating John 3.16 with what she experienced, she said, it was her neighbouring sister who rescued me from the hands of my step mother who wanted to kill me because, I lost money on the road back home from buying a soap from the shop’. My step mother wanted to kill me but the Lord stood between me and her. She emphasised un-doubtfully, that, this is what God promised to all in faith in Him, that He will be with them up to the end of ages (Matthew 28.20)" – Jacob Oyange, Mara, August 2011
A testimony from Leah, Diocese of Mara, sent by the Diocesan Coordinator Jacob Oyange: "Last week I visited a group of 20 members in the Parish of Nyakiswa. Nyakiswa is a Parish approximantly 49 kms from Musoma. I went there with my office Car. I drove by my self. Nearly to the Parish compound I met with some few Church members who I felt were going to join others in their group meeting (the family of one heart and one mind). I stopped the Car and Give them greetings as African tradition says. My greetings motivated them to tell me their stories. It was a story of how the Family of one heart and one mind has helped them to witness the suffering, cruxifiction, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to the Villege families. Leah (one of the group member) said to me, Revd Jacob, do you know that before I joined this church I was a Witch doctor? Furthermore, do you know that, I have been in this church for more than seven years without receiving Christ to change my life? In this point I decided to step down from my Car. She said, at the first time when I heard notices in the church, announced about Rooted in church, I decided to join the group without knowing what is going to happen in the group. The first day, our Pastor introduced the Family of one heart and one mind and what we are going to do in the group. He read some of the topics from the book, which I attracted me so much. One topic which he read was about 'Jesus is coming back'. At the moment I didn't ask any question but, I waited the day of the lesson. It was moving my heart for all time our Pastor was teaching. I felt with a sleepy, within a short time, I heard the voice speaking with me says, You are sinner, you are sinner, repent. suddenly, I awakened and felt happy and felt releasement from a kind of a heavy load. I told my Pastor about it and he laid his hand upon  my head. I felt as if something has entered in my life and my tongue started to call for Jesus. I felt lightly in my life and my heart. I went home and gave testimony to my family and friends and all people around me. To me, this is the story I never heard." - June 2012

 

In their own words: testimonies from group members in South Africa
The following story came from Amanda Ohlsson, RinJ trainer with Growing the Church, from the Diocese of Cape Town, where RinJ is in use in a single pilot parish:“Fr. Donny, Rector of the Church of Reconciliation, Manenberg, shared the following testimony: As you know, the gangs were doing warfare and shooting innocent people. As a result, all of our schools in the area were closed. The people of my church, in particularly those leaders who were a part of the RinJ training and the RinJ groups, approached me to do something about the gang shootings. They decided to come together and pray. Then they were going to go out .. to distribute soup and bread, to talk to the gangs and to even pray with some gang members.They took to the streets, demonstrating with placards, singing choruses and praying. The group went on to invite other clergy to join them; and eventually, along with Archbishop Thabo, they held talks with the gang leaders to work out a ceasefire.Now the schools have re-opened. People have the freedom and safety to walk in the community, and RinJ groups have started to meet again.To me, Fr. Donny’s testimony is an awesome celebration of what God is able to do when He uses ordinary people to do extra-ordinary things when they are “Rooted in Jesus”. I cannot wait to share with others about the exciting things God can do in an impossible situation, using the lessons of Rooted in Jesus. All the glory goes to God who is the author and finisher of our faith.” November 2013
“I’m not really a “groupie” person and I kept being “nagged” about the "Rooted in Jesus" notice as it appeared regularly in the leaflet. It was quite a last minute decision because I felt I needed to explore
and learn how I as an individual could allow my roots of faith to find depth and meaning through this course. And it did not disappoint!” “I now look forward to our Tuesday gathering at the Deanery and
the lively and animated participation that takes place. This course has given me the opportunity of creating bonds with people in an unexpected way. I have become more conscious of how I should conduct myself, how I should treat and respect others. We have delved into the Bible and scriptures at such depth and given me a new insight into the meaning of THE WORD. Revd Claire is an excellent teacher and stretches our thinking. She is a hard task master when it comes to memorising verses and that is a personal weakness with me but I’m encouraged to slog at it. I can see now what an amazing reference and guideline to life the Bible is – all that we need to know about life and how to live it is right there at our
fingertips!” - June, Diocese of Grahamstown, December 2012
“I have certainly learnt how to pray for others in groups, and also the meaning of the Bible verses given to us to memorise. I have grown spiritually in my own special way. What stood out for me is the way Claire took us through the Lord’s Prayer and explained what each verse meant. Looking forward to next year!” – Avis, Diocese of Grahamstown, December 2012
“The encouragement that I could give to the young people out there is, find a group and join it and experience it for yourself, because this experience is one in a lifetime, you can’t find anything like it!” - Renae, Diocese St Mark, South Africa, January 2011

 

In their own words: testimonies from group members in Zambia
Augustine lives in Kasikishi, what you would call a suburb of the huge village area of Nchelenge in
Luapula. He is a missionary with one of Dignityʼs Impact Teams and over the last year has travelled
twice to an area called Kabuta. In March 2012, Augustine travelled to see Barnabus to help him begin some Life! Groups [using RinJ] in the area. Over the last year they have been meeting regularly. One of the common traits of village life is the lack of activity of what are called ʻyouthsʼ. That in Zambia is anyone under 25. Often they are found drinking, lounging about and generally not being very productive. Augustine came across two such youths. They were far from God and far from being useful. Visiting earlier this year, Augustine again travelled to Kabuta. He met the same two youths, albeit a year later. He couldnʼt believe the transformation that he witnessed. The two men had been attending a Life! Group and had decided that, in their words, they needed to get ʻseriousʼ about God and about their lives. They have become useful, productive and committed to the message of loving God and those around you. They have actually begun 2 or 3 groups in the area specifically for young people. They meet, look at the Bible, try and apply its lessons to everyday life and become useful people in their community. In Augustineʼs own words, “I never expected such a change to happen“. However, thatʼs the kind of God we serve and the kind of message that we have. Everyone can know God and serve Him wherever they find themselves. Jon Witt, Zambia, Nov 2013
A changed life: “I visited Kambwata area where we have planted two Life! Groups with Dignity. During my visit I met a woman who has  been attending the Life! Group, which is using the Rooted in  Jesus resource. She told me her story. Months ago she was a drunkard, she would insult many  people was a troublesome person in the village. The Life!  Group in her village took her in and allowed her to participate  in the group. In short, through the Rooted in Jesus course, the Lord transformed her life. She is now not a drunkard. She told me, that rather than being a bad mother to her  children, and a terrible wife, she is now a good mother and  a good wife. Her life has changed completely. She now calls  herself a committed Christian and is much, much happier as  a person. As a result of the startling change in her life, many people  have been attracted to the groups and they are growing at a faster rate.” Augustine, a pastor from the Luapula region of Zambia, October 2011
"One woman from Nchelenge became a Christian in her village group. Her group had been using material that we use to give villagers a tool to help each other grow in Christ. The material is called Rooted in Jesus, and helps villagers whatever their education level to embrace Christ individually and corporately. At some point this woman noticed the number of orphans in her village, even though she had lived there many years. 'They are all God's children,' she declared, and promptly took some children into her own home at her own expense. The gravity of that action is staggering. She has taken responsibility not only for herself, but for people around her as well.” Jon Paul Witt, working with RinJ through Dignity International in Zambia, February 2011
"The course we learn at St Paul's Church (Musonda Falls) and now we are growing spiritually. I even started telling people how the work of the book Rooted in Jesus Christ are. People now are responding and get interested in the lessons. And now we even go to the village and do Evangelism to different people who are not church members”, Rosaria Chipampe, Diocese of Luapula, October 2005
"It's never a dull moment when you are in class or discussion. You can feel the presence of God and that people are being touched" - Revd Godwin Manganani, Diocese of Luapula, Zambia, September 2005

 

In their own words: testimonies from group members in Burundi
"The leaders of the churches testified they benefitted the knowledge of the Bible through Rooted in J. Christ and the Christians who participated enjoyed it also throughout the programme. They shared the word of God: each has to speak and read the Bible and met regularly in fellowship included also the company of fellowship inter their friends. Many Christians committed their lives through Rooted in Jesus Christ from leaders reports. The new converted returned back the good news to their family, some of their relatives also get saved. Report shows that the church in South of Burundi has increased and growth quickly through the programme" - Canon Simon Sibomana, Diocese of Rumonge, August 2014
“We are encouraged by the testimony of returning leaders.They are testifying to lives transformed, people giving up alcohol, people being healed, Christians who have stopped praying praying again, and a pastor who was tempted to convert to Islam staying rooted in Jesus" - Ven Kevin Roberts, team leader, Diocese of Muyinga, July 2014



In their own words: testimonies from group members in Uganda
"Ten of the members gave their lives to Lord Jesus. Among those who gave their lives to Jesus was Nathan who had come with his wife Florence. He loudly announced his birth experience, moved fast towards his wife. Upon reaching her he knelt down and  wept. He sought forgiveness from his wife for having been a drunkard. The experience led a number of members to tears. The Holy Spirit was moving among us transforming everybody saved and unsaved." - Canon John Musaasizi, Diocese of Mityana, March 2016
"Group members have testified about learning scriptures and learning how to pray, and some people’s prayer lives have been revived and lives changed plus miracles happening when they pray" - Joyce Asaba, Diocesan Coordinator, Diocese of Bunyoro Kitara, September 2014 


In their own words: testimonies from group members in Malawi
"Rooted in Jesus has helped me know the Bible and stand firm in my faith. I work for a Muslim factory owner and the Muslims in my factory try and get the Christians to convert. Before Rooted in Jesus I didn’t know how to cope with this but now I can teach the other Christians in the factory the memory verse and help them to stand firm in their faith”, Group Leader, Blantyre August 2008
"Before Rooted in Jesus I wasn’t interested in reading the Bible or prayer – now I read the Bible and trust God every day." Group Leader, Blantyre August 2008
