“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” — Psalm 133:1
Somau Garia culture is a consensus-based culture. Decisions are not made in isolation–there is a much higher level of interdependence between people than we know in the West. One spiritual battle that must be waged–and has a much higher impact on relationships–is for the unity of believers. This is especially true for the believers who are devoted to translating the New Testament into the Somau Garia language. Ask God to break through the barrier of disunity among the Somau Garia co-workers–that His name might be honored and his body strong. Ask God to unite them solely on the basis of their task–but by His Spirit.
