“How will we live . . . ?”
“I placed the Proclaimers into several villages close to us,” one missionary and Every Church Every Village participant shared with us. “I told the people that I would be back in two weeks to pick up the Audio Bibles and take them to other villages.
There was this one older woman with her broken arm in a tattered, filthy rag for a sling. I came to her village and told her that it was time for me to take the Proclaimer to another place so they could listen also. She went and got it – clinging to it with that dirty, broken arm – tears running down her face. She was talking in broken sobs.
"How will we know the WORDS of GOD?!"
I can’t speak the language yet, but I began to cry. My interpreter told me what she was saying: What will we do? How will we know the WORDS of GOD?! How will we live without this Bible? Please don’t take it from us. I could not stop crying. Even now, it still makes me cry.
I told her to please stop crying . . . that it was okay . . . that she could keep it. Now, every time I stop there to check on her, she tells me about the people – how many are coming to listen and how much that they have changed!”
