Never take it for granted. Bible Year 2011 (9)

A powerful reminder of what the Bible can mean for a community receiving it for the first time in their own language. In 2010 the Kimyal Tribe of West Papua, Indonesia celebrated the arrival of a plane carrying copies of the New Testament.

It is easy to forget what a precious gift it is to have the Bible in our language and so easy to take for granted. There are still many peoples who do not have the gift of the Bible in their own tongue. For more information check out Eddie and Sue Arthur’s blog including When will Bible translation be finished.
