After the dedication

I recently read an article about Joseph Nkwelle, a seminary student at the Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary. Joseph’s mother tongue is Akoose and he is studying to be a Bible translation consultant, when I read that it brought back the memories of traveling to Tombel for the dedication of their New Testament in 2011. I went back and read the 4 posts where I shared some of what I was able to witness. (If you missed those 4 posts, go check them out)

The New Testament is not the entire Bible and Joseph’s desire is not to finish the Akoose Bible. But to help another people group who need the New Testament more than the Bakossi need the Old Testament even though his community would like to have the complete Bible.

Ernie Fredrick, one of the speakers at the dedication of the New Testament challenged the Bakosssi people to be a great commission people. To GO and SHARE the good news. I was encouraged to read that they are doing that and even training to give other people the Bible in their language.

Praise the LORD!

    It’s hard to believe that was 4 years ago. I believe God is using His people to fulfill the commission. This is evidence of that truth. Praise the Lord indeed!
