D.R. Congo Container III: Bibles
Goal

In the late 1950ís, Gertrud Harlow was part of the translation team who helped produce the first version of the Bible in Congo Swahili. Almost fifty years later, Gertrud was exercised by the Lord to undertake a complete linguistic revision and re-typesetting of the Congo Swahili Bible. By Godís abundant grace she was able to finish this formidable task earlier this year. When the original publisher showed no interest in publishing this new revision, it was prayerfully decided that Everyday Publications would undertake the responsibility of publishing the Revised Congo Swahili Bible!

Working in cooperation with CMML, MSC, and CrossWorld (formerly Unevangelized Fields Mission) we have seen the Lord provide the funds to print 20,000 Bibles. A 20-foot container was loaded full with 18,000 Bibles and shipped directly from the printer to the same brethren managing the distribution of the last Congo Container at Shalom University in Bunia, Democratic Republic of Congo. The remaining 2,000 Bibles is being stored in the Everyday Publications warehouse in Port Colborne to be used for fulfilling requests for Bibles from missionaries and national workers in the DR Congo.

As is our custom, EPI is printing and shipping these Bibles without cost to the believers in Congo. Those distributing the Bibles may decide to charge a nominal price for them but as far as Everyday Publications is concerned, the invoice for these Revised Congo Swahili Bibles is already paid in full. Freely we have received and so freely we will give!

Please pray with us for the successful printing and safe delivery of this first print run of the Revised Congo Swahili Bible.

Please pray also for Godís wisdom and provision regarding future printings of this Bible.
