Picture this. A rugged mountainous South East Asian country. This country is not open to the religion of Christianity. But through the work of Wycliffe Associates and their colleagues, the Open Bible Stories (OBS) have been translated into the national language.
The Open Bible Stories are 51 stories from the Bible that cover that basics from Genesis until Revelation. Beautiful pictures accompany each story and the Good News is clearly communicated. These are a great resource for opening the door to translating a Bible in various languages. Ken has been a part of the workshops that support these translations.
The 2,500 Christians in this region are hungry for God’s words in their own language so the pastors in the T language are excited to use this resource. Although the community is uneducated with approximately 80% unable to read or write, they long to learn more about their Savior. The local pastor also plans on distributing 1,000 OBS to the various villages in the area to reach an unchurched and unengaged group. The pastor says that there is a lot of false teaching as well as sheep stealing in this region. A picture Bible will be perfect for them!
