God’s Word Reaches the Yawa!

In June 2011, the Yawa people of Papua, Indonesia received the New Testament in their language. It was a day of celebration! Here’s a glimpse into the excitement of that day…

Yawa celebration!There was no shortage of a local feel to the singing and dancing that surrounded the celebration!

Everyone was very eager to get their own copy of the Yawa New Testament. The entire shipment sold out! A new shipment is arriving soon.

Joy in receiving the ScripturesThere’s great joy in being able to have God’s Word in the language you understand best!

Yawa Scriptures are an excellent tool for the Yawa to learn to read in their own language.

Finally, here’s a glimpse into the beautiful countryside in the Yawa region.
