"The Bible is not given to us in grand superhuman language. Jesus, in order to reach man where he is, took humanity. The Bible must be given in the language of men."  {1SM 20.2}  So it is very important that the people are able to read the Bible in their own language.

  "I have been shown that the publications already have been doing a work upon some minds in other countries, in breaking down the walls of prejudice and superstition...I saw them holding papers and tracts in one hand, and the Bible in the other, while their cheeks were wet with tears; and bowing before God in earnest, humble prayer, to be guided into all truth,--the very thing He was doing for them before they called upon Him. And when the truth was received in their hearts, and they saw the harmonious chain of truth, the Bible was to them a new book; they hugged it to their hearts with grateful joy, while their countenances were all aglow with happiness and holy joy."  {LS 215.1}
     


When we visit churches, whether Baptist, Presbyterian, Evangelical or Seventh Day Adventist.  Out of a congregation of 150 people, approximately 10 people have a Bible.  This is why we have made an effort to raise funds to buy as many Bibles for the people to read - in their own language if they choose, or in English if they prefer.  How sad it would be to be unable to study the Bible for ourselves.


What a joy to see people reading their Bibles.

"Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, “Follow Me.” { GW 363.2}
