Here’s a clip of the Kimya tribe of Papua, Indonesia as they receive the first complete translation of the New Testament in their language. The overwhelming joy of receiving God’s word in their own native language. How much more should we (in the west) be thankful for.
Such a profound prayer by the pastor who is filled with much gratitude and thankfulness!
The month that you had set, the day that you had set, has come to pass today. Oh my Father, my Father, the Promise that you gave Simeon that he would see Jesus Christ and hold Him in his arms before he died. I also have been waiting under that same promise, O God. You looked at all the different languages and chose which ones will be put into Your Word. You thought that we should see Your Word in our language. Today, the day you had chosen for this to be fulfilled, has come to pass. You have placed it here in our land. And for all this, O God, I give You praise.
