After months of research and searching for the right deal, I buy it.
“Your order will arrive Tuesday.”
Tuesday!? It seems forever away…
Tuesday is here and I anxiously await the arrival of my package. I open the door, looking to see if maybe the FedEx man forgot to knock on the door when he left the box.
An hour later, I check again.
And then it comes…a knock!
“Yay!” I yell excitedly to the kids. From my reaction they are expecting something quite exciting to be at the door.
“What is it, Mommy?” Anna asks. “Can I help you open it?”
She helps me open the box. All. Too. Slowly. Little fingers struggle to pull the tape across the top of the Amazon box. We pull back the cardboard flaps.
The waiting is over; it’s here…
My new Bible!
There are more people in the world without a single verse of Scripture in their language than the entire population of the United States. In fact, more people live without a complete Bible in their language than without enough food and clean water combined. – EndBiblePovery.org
For months, Lara and I have been working hard on our ebook. Both of us have wanted to be able to give of the proceeds of our book. But hadn’t been certain of where the Lord was leading.
Then back in May Lara saw this and shared it with me. It is a video of the the Kimyal Tribe of Papua, Indonesia receiving their first Bibles ever in their language. We watch as the people dance, jump up and down, and weep because they now have copies of the New Testament in their native tongue.
It was then we knew where He was leading: We are to give in order to bring the nations the living water it so desperately needs.
A Chance to Give
We are also thrilled to announce that we will be donating $2 to OneVerse for every copy of Savoring Living Water sold. And, the cool thing is, for every 13 copies purchased we will be able to fund the translation of a verse.
So, we’ve set a goal; a chance for the Lord to show off and for us to be a part of bringing His Word to the nations. Through the proceeds of Savoring Living Water we would like to fund the translation of the book of Philippians.
That’s 104 verses, folks.
They are Waiting
Last week I anxiously awaited my new study Bible to arrive on my doorstep. There are people all over the world who have NOT ONE COPY OF THE BIBLE to call their own.
The Rutara people are waiting.
The Rewe people are waiting.
The Ayta-Abellan people are waiting.
The Bible brings life, and for every day that passes, enough people to fill 16 Boeing 747s die without hearing the Gospel in their own language. – EndBiblePoverty.org
There are people longing in anticipation for the Word of God to arrive in their dialect.
Let’s bring it to them.
