Su Libdu ku Diyus ha Kabuhayon…
That is the title of the Higaunon New Testament. Translated it literally says, “God’s Book that is Life” one could say in smoother English, “The Book of God for Life.”
God is not some nebulous being out there who has no interest in the everyday happenings of mankind. He loves us with an everlasting love. His love is so awesome and He has given us a book that tells us about that precious love.
The Higaunon are excited as they anticipate the arrival of the New Testament in their language. While we wait for the shipment to arrive, we’re working on a rough draft of the book of Psalms. It’s been fun watching the language helpers as they hear some of this for the first time. Yes indeed, this is a book for life written by the Living God! It is clear as we go through the Psalms that He is indeed interested in each of us.
The New Testaments have been packed and are scheduled to be picked up today, Friday September 4th. Thank you for your continued prayers for safety as they make the journey here. The church has scheduled a thanksgiving celebration in November. We are praying that they will arrive in time for that.
We were blessed to learn just today that Lowe’s Hardware waived the cost of cutting the plywood when they learned it was to be used for making boxes to ship New Testaments. It took them one and a half hours to make all those cuts!
To each of you who are praying we say “THANK YOU.” We have seen God answer many prayers already! We also thank each of you who have given financially so the Higaunon can have God’s printed Word in their language. If there are those of you reading this that still wish to participate financially, simply drop us a note and we’ll tell you how you can do that.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
