A Bible in every bilum

Starting young

The bilum (string bag) is an integral part of many Papua New Guinea cultures.  Men and women, young and old can be seen carrying them. It is the place to store all the things you need for a trip, carry food from the garden and it even is a nursery for the infants (see below).  Over the past couple years there has been a movement called the Bible Bilum Covenant that is helping the PNG churches to see the need for heart-language Scriptures.  The covenant encourages the PNG church to get involved in the Bible translation process. Pray that more churches will get involved in this  important activity.
