“The greatest missionary is the Bible in the mother tongue. It needs no furlough and is never considered a foreigner.” – William Cameron Townsend
This is an even more amazing statement after having heard from a Burmese pastor who is training other pastors that some of those churches have only one Bible in the entire church.
The 1st American Missionary, Adoniram Judson, finished the translation of a Burmese Bible in 1835. Burmese ranks 34th on the world’s most spoken languages.
I will be visiting Burma with fellow missionary Dr. Bob Bowen from March 19-26. We sure would appreciate your prayers. In case you are interested, you could buy a Burmese pastor a Bible for just $8.00. What’s that, just two Starbucks a week?
