EE-Taow! The Mouk Story

"EE-Taow" means "it’s very true" in the Mouk language.

During the Theology of Mission class last week, my lecturer showed a video by New Tribes Mission about the Mouk tribe of Papua New Guinea. The reenactment of their salvation testimony was quite powerful and moving, and so I thought I should read up a little more about the Mouk people. And lo and behold, I found the same video I watched while googling for the Mouk tribe.

According to the lecturer, the team of missionaries took about two years to study the Mouk language and way of life, to educate the Mouk people, and to translate the Bible into the Mouk language. When the missionaries were ready to present the Gospel, they invited the entire village to a series of Bible teachings in which they explained the Bible in the language of the tribe. For three months, the villagers would gather together twice a day on Monday to Friday where each session lasted about an hour, while the missionaries chronologically walked through the key points of the Bible.

You can watch the EE-Taow! The Mouk Story video on Google Videos or download the entire video here. Or else you can read the story of the Mouk people here.

This will not succeed in reality, that is what I think.

This video proves Jesus' forewarning: "The last shall be first and the first last." In His day Christ was rejected by the "educated" Sanhedrin, but accepted and embraced by tax collectors and prostitutes. Why? One group was proud and the other humble. The Mouk Tribe people willingly and patiently heard and humbly received the Gospel. And so, they were gloriously saved and God was glorified. It can happen if Christians present the Gospel as it should be presented.
Very touching and inspiring video.
