Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson Five: God’s forgiveness,Bible Lesson 7: The Tongue 
Ida went to Maliga to teach about God’s forgiveness and also do some preview on the Tongue lesson. She started with the Tongue preview which led her in reteaching it again because those present didn’t remember anything. She told the mice story which they all agreed that they do the same thing that the mice did. Let’s try to listen and understand the whole story not only a phrase. Ida gave them a memory verse from Ephesians 4:29 which they all recited. After the recap, Ida asked the community if there was any one who has ever been forgiven or forgave someone. The majority have been forgiven and also forgave only that they still feel bad when they see those they forgave. They still remember everything they did to them. Ida told them the story of the unforgiving servant which made all them laugh. When asked what was funny, Fida said that they are the same as the servant who refused to forgive his fellow workmate. Ida went on and asked that if you are the same as the unforgiving servant, What and how are you going to change? Kasinga said that they should do what the Bible says. To forgive so as to be forgiven. Jesus emphasized so much on forgiveness. Even we see it in the Lord’s prayer. Fida said that after forgiving them, they still do something wrong again, until when or how many times do they need to continue forgiving? Ida asked the members present to help her and answer Fida’s question. Kasinga stood and said that Jesus said that we must forgive and forgive unceasingly. The rest clapped and promised to try forgiving others but doubted if they will ever forget. Ida asked Muzafaru to close with a prayer.
