We take for granted the ease with which can walk into a bookshop and buy a Bible. For we in Australia Bibles are relatively inexpensive. But imagine that when you wanted to buy a Bible you had to go to say Adelaide or Canberra. That’s what it’s like for many of the people of Vanuatu. Vanuatu is a chain of 83 islands and one of the biggest hurdles the nation faces is distance and lack of affordable transport. In September I interviewed Pastor Laliman Kalso from Ambrym and asked him about the availability of the Bible is in Vanuatu.
Thank you to everyone who made a donation to our “New Testaments for Vanuatu” appeal. We collected over $22,000 and we are now in the process of working with our partners and the Bible Society to commence printing as soon as possible.
