In March 2010, the Kimyal people of Papua, Indonesia, received copies of the New Testament which had been translated into their language – for the first time in history! This video is, personally, overwhelming to watch. I own several Bibles to say the least. I’m sure there are no fewer than thirty in my possession. Watching my Kimyal brothers and sisters receive something that we, as English-speaking peoples, have had since 1526 (thanks to William Tyndale‘s Modern English translation) is humbling to say the least.
Think about it, the Kimyal are receiving what you and I have been blessed with for almost 500 years – a Bible in their native tongue.
Watch. Rejoice. Read your Bible.
