We were so pleased that we could attend the Scripture dedication celebration this year! 30 Bibles were dedicated this year. That translates to over 12 million people who get to read the Bible in their own language!
At the celebration in Waxhaw, NC the Bibles were brought in on an African seat usually used to carry a chief into the village. The story was told that the chief insisted that the newly printed Bible in his language be carried in on this seat since it was the most important thing of use for his people. We heard stories and saw wonderful videos of people dancing and praising God because they can now read the Bible in their mother tongue.
This video is of the celebration at our headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Enjoy. You helped with your faithful giving and prayer for many years!

How wonderful! Would that we who have Scripture readily available, would so acknowledge the value and power of God;s word. Thank you for this touching reminder.
