Help People Who Need Bibles

Tom, over at Tom-in-the-Box, is a missionary serving in Russia. The people he is ministering to do not speak Russian as their native language. They are Tuvan's, which sounds to me like something off of Star Trek. Come to think of it, wasn't Worf's adopted father Russian? Anyway, in all seriousness, they don't have a bible in their own language. One is being translated but they need money to produce the Bible. Can you help? Can you afford not to help? You can read Tom's blog post about it here. After that, I would suggest several things you could do to help.

1) Pass this along to everyone you know. If you have a blog, promote it. If you pass along goofy mass emails, you can pass this serious request for aid along so that people know about it.
2) Pray for these people, for Tom, and for those translating the Word.
3) Give financially. I know times are tight but if you are able to give to this I exhort you in the name of our Lord to do so. You can go to this website and find out how to donate.

It was my pleasure to help. I can't imagine what it would be like to not have a bible that you can read in your native language. Thank you for the work that you do.

Get 'r done!!!
