Maithili Books Shipped to Bihar
CSM received notice this morning, April 6, that 1,000 copies of the Maithili translation of Simple Truths have been shipped to northern India. The books will be put into the hands of grass-roots church planters in the Darbhanga District of the Bihar State to assist with the work among the Maithili-speaking believers there.
The project was initiated in October of 2016 by Kevin Schular of the Baptist General Conference of Canada to assist the church workers of Eternal Life Ministry in Bihar. The initial translation was completed in November. After a period of field testing and evaluation, revisions were made earlier in 2017 with the help of Baiju Bhandari, Executive Director of ELM, and the manuscripts were sent to the printer in Hyderabad.
After knowing that the project was nearing delivery, Pastor Baiju wrote:
I am really very glad to know that those booklets will be reaching soon. Indeed, with the help of these booklets, believers in Mithilanchal will be strengthen in CHRIST. In the days to come Mithilanchal will be won for CHRIST in JESUS name. GOD bless you. Thank you.
The books should arrive and be in use sometime in the next 10 days.
