Swahili Phrase of the Week


What a joy it is to have Pastor Mponzi visit with us. This week’s Swahilli phrase is one that Pastor Mponzi shares from his village in Idunda.

Throughout worship in October, we will also be incorporating liturgical elements from Africa (including a Masai Creed), songs from Africa, and even the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili (check out this cool video ).

This week’s phrase:

Yesu ni Mchungaji mwema


Jesus is a good Shepherd.

Fun fact: Mchungaji (shepherd) is the same word that is used for “pastor” in Tanzania.
