For many years Sovereign Word Trust has been partnering with Roccio Villacis in Peru. This was a relationship that began when Rocio came to England to work in Christ Church, Tonbridge as a youth worker. Before she came to the UK she had been using Bob Gordon’s Foundations of Christian Living, a book by Sovereign World Ltd, and she was keen to find and meet the publisher. Little did she know that she had landed on their doorstep! Rocio had been developing simplified resources in Spanish from Bob’s book for use in small village communities in the Amazon jungle and Andean foothills.
Rocio has also been working on parallel simplified and illustrated versions. These include prompts, actions and questions so the material can be used in a very interactive manner. When these villages receive the gospel, they turn to Christ together and the village chief becomes their pastor. Picture if you can a simple dwelling in a remote region. There is no electricity, only a wood fire. A group of people, old and young, are huddled together inside a bamboo dwelling listening to their pastor – chief, responding to him with actions, gestures and words. He holds up a laminated sheet with one of Rocio’s Good News Bible-style drawings of Jesus feeding the 5000. One of the children is invited to act out the part of the boy who brought his loaves and fishes to Jesus…
