October 24-31, 2016
The "B" people are a small ethnic minority group scattered across four countries in Southeast Asia. Living in remote areas, they had developed a deep distrust of outsiders, especially Christians. But in 1996 they invited CBF field personnel to live among them, learn their language, and help create an alphabet and literacy materials in their previously unwritten language.
In April 2016, the dozen "B" believers gathered to celebrate the arrival of the New Testament in the language of their hearts. They told stories of how the gospel message had changed their lives, and how they hoped to share Jesus with their neighbors.
Please pray that the Word in the "B" language will bear fruit. Pray that believers will be encouraged and strengthened in their faith as they come to a deeper understanding of the Scripture and that others will be attracted to Jesus through his Word in print, audio and digital media.
