As the Mato New Testaments arrived, the people prayed blessings on them, considering them so precious that they would not let even one box touch the ground. People sang and danced as the Bibles were carried over palm branches to the translation office where they were stored for the upcoming dedication just a few days later. The Mato people now have access to the New Testament in their own language—in print and audio formats, as well as the Jesus Film and a series of videos on the Gospel of Mark.
