Scripture Celebration

When I (David) was in Orlando a few weeks ago part of my time there was spent joining in a scripture celebration.  There were 25 languages that we were celebrating that either received an entire Bible, a New Testament or a portions of scripture that had recently been printed within the last 6 months.

The number of people that speak these 25 languages, that now have access to God’s Word, some of them for the first time is 2,850,850 people!

2,850,850 people now have access to the Word of God in their heart language

We were able to hear several stories about the translation projects and one of them was the Makaa, you might remember this language from August 2014 when they finished this translation in Cameroon and they were sending the final copies to the printer. Even though we are not in Cameroon I was still able to celebrate the dedication of the Makaa New Testament along with 24 other portions of scripture including a waterproof Bible for the Kamano-Kafe which is spoken in Papua New Guinea.

    How awesome that you were able to celebrate a translation for a tongue in a nation where you lived. We continue to pray that those without the Word of God in their heart language will see answers to their prayers as the work continues.
