Stories of the prophecy began circulating through the tribe. The people were hungry for the Word, but hesitant because they remembered the prophecy of the red book and knew their leader was against it.
It would take a miracle to change the traditional mindset of the tribe. Especially the Chief.
An Unexpected Conversation
As Bibles were being distributed through Maasailand, Bible League International staff asked to meet with the Chief to hear his vision firsthand and see the process of getting these Bibles to such a remote group in Africa. As they made their way to Kenya, the staff prayed for the best but prepared for the worst. They had no idea how the Chief would react to the organization responsible for introducing the Red Book to his tribe.
When the visitors arrived, the Chief began to retell his prophecy, detailing what he saw. Then, after years of fearing the red book, the Chief changed his mind.
