Good News (Ntenga Wambone)
Words of Life
Offline Films in Ciyawo
Numerous Christian film materials have been translated into Ciyawo with varying degrees of professionalism. Below, I will attempt to list what I know of as well as mention the quality (as judged by myself as a westerner, a far cry from what would be acceptable perhaps by others’ standards).
God’s Story (Mbili jwa Mlungu)
professional quality | an 80-minute presentation about the Bible from creation to eternity covering the main stories of the Bible. [watch online in English or Portuguese]
The Hope (Chembecheyo)
semi-professional quality | awaiting translation checking for final approval | a groundbreaking film incorporating a number of high-quality film productions over the years that deal with epic biblical stories; a chronological approach to teaching the Bible produced by Mars Hill out of Texas, USA but translated locally in Malawi. [watch online in English]
The Story of Mohammed (Ngani ja Muhamedi)
semi-professional quality | originally produced in a Nigerian dialect with English subtitles, this 45-minute dramatic story shows us a Nigerian Muslim who began to have dreams and visions of a spiritual teacher dressed in white. His quest to understand this person led him to become a follower of Jesus. That choice caused his family to disown him and Muhamed found himself at a very difficult place in life. Translated in Malawi. [For more information, see MoreThanDreams.org]
The Story of Khalil (Ngani ja Kalili)
semi-professional quality | A radical Egyptian terrorist changed from a murderous “Saul” to a forgiving “Paul” after Jesus Christ visited him in a soul-penetrating dream. This hater of both Christians and Jews set out to discredit the Bible, but instead, he was transformed when Jesus appeared to him and changed his heart. Translated in Malawi. [For more information, see MoreThanDreams.org]
