During a couple of weeks our six religious teachers banded together for a team teaching effort. Usually each of the teachers has his own area in which he visits
the Maasai villages for prayer and bible based teaching. On Sundays he gathers the people for a prayer service in a central place. Fr. Arkado and I get around to the various places as often as we can, usually a couple of times each month.
The last fortnight was different. The six met a couple of times with us to A qplan the strategy. The group of six would spend two days with each of the nine small communities of Christians. They would have prayer services in the various places, do some teaching about the life of Jesus and put on a play that they had carefully prepared and rehearsed. The play told the story of the prodigal son. There was a lot of singing too. Matayo,, who is also an expert in composing Maasai music and a gifted singer, had composed a new Maasai song telling the story of the Prodigal Son.
At one place a son was reconciled with his father following a long period of misunderstanding.
The Team effort went very well. The people liked the time with the group of catechists. The people report enjoying especially the time spent singing and watching the play, acted out by the teachers. The teachers themselves came away enthusiastic and enlivened by their time with each other and with the various Christian groups.
