Praise for the Pijin Bible!

I was thrilled to get the report from my cousin, Bob Carter, concerning the ceremonies around the publication of the entire Bible in the Pijin language of the Solomon Islands.

We were honored to be able to partner with Bob and his family and the translation team during the past 10 years and reading the stories and seeing the pictures was a wonderful thing to behold.

God is at work, friends, and it has been awesome to watch. Take a few minutes to rejoice with those who rejoice!

Hope is alive and well in the South Pacific!

Wow! That is an accomplishment. I had a friend in college who spent a summer in PNG learning pijin and helping out generally (whatever it is short-termers do). That was quite a few years ago ... translation is certainly a work for those with long-term commitment!

I am sure that your friend is blessed to know that this work has been completed. My cousin came into it after it was well underway ... and that was 10 years ago!
