Session #2

The Flow: Level #1 (1 John 2:12-14) video helps New Believers Grow - translated from English into Luganda - shows the basic needs of new believers and how to properly care for them.

This video on The Flow: Level #1 shows how Christians begin to grow and are nurtured in their early spiritual life. The new believer is likened to a new baby and his needs.

Katonda ye yatandika okukula mu mwoyo. Nʼomwana omuto omugya, omwana omuwere, ebyetaago ebyʼejawulo. Byetaago ki ebyenjawulo ebyʼomwana omuto? Byangu nga mere, okuwumula, okufibwaako okutandikirwako nʼokwagala. Abakiriza bebamu. Singa abakiriza abagya bafuna ebintu bino, olwo basobola okukula obulungi.
