“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” ~ Hebrews 4:12 ~
Onobasulu New Testament Milestone!
The Bible translation process can be a long and challenging road. Much prayer, hard work, and reliance upon the Lord is required to translate God’s Word. Then there are numerous checks to make sure it communicates accurately to their people. This road is also marked with encouraging milestones and God-moments.
One such moment just recently came for the Onobasulu translation team as they FINISHED the “advisor check” of their New Testament. This means the full New Testament has been translated and reviewed by a qualified advisor. That’s worth celebrating!
While we were in Papua New Guinea (PNG) James worked with a number of the people involved in the Onobasulu translation. Seeing the Onobasulu interacting with God’s Word warms our hearts!
What Would You Do Without God’s Word??
The Word of God is invaluable, powerful, and sharper than any double-edged sword. It cuts us to the heart, speaks life to our weary bones, tells us of the love and compassion that Jesus has for His people, and provides crucial instruction for our lives.
Watch this powerful video of an evangelist who was imprisoned, without access to God’s Word, for years!
What would you do if you did NOT have a copy of God’s Word?
Our Financial Need
