The project leader for this project says: “Please pass on our gratitude for making the printing of our books possible.
We finally received the order of reprints of kids’ Bible picture books and Ruth and Jonah comic books which are the focus of the WBTA project just two days ago!
We are very happy to be able to distribute and sell these books now which are our most sought-after items.”
Papuan Malay is the language of wider communication spoken by 2 million people in the Indonesian province of Papua. The Papuan Malay Bible translation team has a goal of distributing 1 million Scripture forms (books, social media hits, Jesus Film views on YouTube, Scripture app downloads, etc.) before completing the New Testament by the year 2028. They currently have quite a range of published products.
But people young and old are always attracted to two main products – the comics and the storybooks! Bright, colourful pictures draw people into the stories of Ruth and Jonah in comic form, and the stories of Zakeus, the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan and Jesus Lives Again in storybook form. Stock of all of these most popular books has run out and the team would love to reprint them because they know what an impact they have on people’s lives. Any profit made from the sale of these books will enable more to be printed in the future.
