Praise The Lord the 400 Bibles in French have reached the Boyds in Senegal finally after several months of effort. Here’s a note from them.
14 September, 2013
We wanted to let you know that the Bibles arrived in the village! Our friends spent last week with us and delivered them to us and we could not be more excited. They are great quality and being hardback will greatly increase their longevity and durability. In addition, it was great to give some of the believers here their first Bible that had the Old and New Testament.
The first person to receive one of the Bibles was my oldest daughter’s best friend who is about 14 years old. She was here spending time with my daughter and asked about the Bibles and we were able to give her one and she assured us that she would begin to read it. The next day her mother came over and asked if it would be possible for her to have a Bible as well and of course we said, “Yes!” When she received it she clutched it to her chest smiling and said that she had heard people, including our family, speak about the Bible, but that she never thought that she would have one of her own. Thank you for making it possible for her to have her own copy of the Word of God!
Evelyn, we will keep you up-to-date on how God is using the Bibles and the doors He is opening for further sharing of the Gospel and His Word. Thank you again for partnering with us as we seek together to spread the Good News of the Gospel in southern Senegal.”
Let us pray for the Boyds as they distribute the Bibles to those in need and may the Word go forth in the power and might of the Holy Spirit that many will be saved through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
