D.R. Congo Container III: Bibles
The revised Congo Swahili Bible is on its way to the DR Congo at last! A 20-foot container loaded with 16,800 Bibles left the printer’s loading dock in Montreal on August 26th en route to Shalom University in Bunia, DR Congo. The container will travel by sea to Mombasa, Kenya, then by truck to Kampala, Uganda, then be transferred to another trucking company who will take the container the rest of the way to Bunia. As of this writing, the container is scheduled to arrive in Kampala on or around November 7th. Lord willing, it should arrive in Bunia before the end of the month. What a wonderful Christmas present for our dear brethren in Congo! The remaining 3,139 Bibles from this fi rst print-run were delivered to our warehouse in Port Colborne on September 8th. When we put out the word to assemblies missionaries working in and around Congo informing them of the availability of Congo Swahili Bible, the response was overwhelming.
