In Africa, on the first day of training to start new churches, the trainer gave the course outline. Everything they learned would be from the Bible, the only textbook for the course. But when Elizabeth opened her trainee kit, she found a notebook, pen, and nametag. Her hand shot into the air. Where are the Bibles?” The trainer looked embarrassed, then explained, “We have no Bibles right now. We hope to have Bibles for your new churches soon.”

Please pray for these leaders as they face the challenge of few Bibles and many new believers!
