Runyankore Catechism

God’s Mission is huge. No one person or organization can do it all. For example, we need Lutheran theological books in the local languages to carry out effective theological leadership training, but LCMS World Mission isn’t structured to spearhead massive translation projects.  That’s where the Lutheran Heritage Foundation (LHF) fills a crucial niche in Lutheran mission work today. They specialize in the translation, publishing, and distribution of books that are Bible-based, Christ-centered and Reformation-driven.

Uganda has approximately 42 different language groups. One language spoken in the west is Runyankore.  Thanks to LHF we now have the first edition of Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation in Runyankore. Thank God with us for our Runyankore lay-leaders who can now read this life-giving teaching tool in their “heart language” and immediately teach it to others!
