“How To Use Your Language Bible” Training
A booklet titled “How To Use Your Language Bible” has been produced. The fourth goal is to train Bible college students to use their language Bibles for personal reading and pastoral ministry.
With your prayers and support and the Lord’s help, we believe that many Solomon Islanders will become engaged with the translated Scriptures in their heart languages, and that their lives will be wonderfully transformed.
