Bible Distribution

This will be another memorable Christmas.   On Tuesday, Pastor Inthava and I traveled to Lumberton to begin distributing the new Kayah Bibles to the 62 Karenni families that live in that town.   This distribution was underwritten by the Refugee Welcome Network.  This is a story best told with pictures, but first this comment, imagine loving the Lord and his Word but never before reading it in your own language…
