These Words Changed Everything - Giveaway!

I just finished reading These Words Changed Everything and wanted to share a part of the story with you.  Do we really understand what its like to get to hear the Words of God for the first time?  We are overloaded with scripture references in our everyday lives and take it for granted.

This book is a telling of the struggles and triumphs of the translation project for the Chamula people of Mexico.  Ken and Elaine Jacobs began working with SIL in 1957 and completed the New Testament translation in 1988 and were privileged to be consultants for the translation of the Old Testament which was completed in 2001.

As people with easy and immediate access to scripture its next to impossible to comprehend what a Bible translation project means for a language community.  In addition to hearing about the living God for the first time in their own language, the literacy benefits are priceless.

I want to share with one of my readers a copy of this book, donated by the publisher, Stem Int'l.  In addition to facilitating short term mission trips and training they publish materials to equip, support and improve short term missions efforts.
