Tandroy Bible Printing Program
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? (Romans 10:14)
Description of this Project:
In 2018 we had 20,000 Bibles printed in the Tandroy dialect by a Ebenezer Printing Company in Kerala, India, a Christian Printing Company. In addition we had 75,000 small booklet hymnals and 7,000 large hymnals printed. The total cost for printing was $94,000.00. By early 2019 all of the Bibles had been distributed. There is an adequate number of hymnals remaining because one hymnal is given out with each Bible.
Steve has written, “The distribution of Bibles and hymnals has continued at a fast pace. Our house was the place where the books were stored and crowds of people came to our doors seeking the “BOOK” as they called it. And we would give a Bible to all who could read and were at least 16 years old. The Bibles and hymnals were delivered to remote communities by hauling cartons of books on one’s head, on bicycles, by trucks and oxen carts. Where ever we went the word that the “BOOK” was available had spread across the region and people were eager to receive one.” The goal is now to continue to teach and help the people to come to faith in Jesus Christ.
We are now seeking funds to have an additional 20,000 Bibles printed.
Amount of request:
$60,000.00 (Every gift is important. $3.00 will provide for the printing of one Bible.)
