Leave a Lasting Legacy

Miniafia man holding New Testament

'God is a Miniafia man,' the loincloth-clad speaker exulted! 'Before, He was English, and American, and Australian. But today He has become Miniafia!'

As the first of the Miniafia-Oyan New Testaments was carried into the village, we laughed and cried our way up through Utukwaf village to the area where the dedication service would take place. We laughed with joy over the obviously enthusiastic reception of the Scripture: 750 copies of the 1000 printed had been purchased before this first had even arrived in the village. We cried in memory of our friends who had died without seeing the book we were now celebrating.

Among them was Utukwaf village chief Gideon Yowen. Not long before he died he said, 'My son, you have lived with us now for many years. I love the stories you have translated, but I am now an old man. Soon I will die. My heart is most sad about this: I will never hold the finished book in my hands.'

The book that Gideon Yowen died longing for, his children and grandchildren now hold in their hands.
