We have an exciting new project! A church in Eugene, Oregon took on the goal of translating The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones into the Khmer language. After doing the first draft of the translation, they reached out to us to see if we would be willing to edit and lay the book out for printing. We, of course, agreed whole-heartedly! Ever since reading The Jesus Storybook Bible to my own kids, I’ve often thought about possibly translating it into Khmer so that Cambodian children could benefit from its rich theological truth and beautiful illustrations, but the costs of translating and printing such a book are quite astronomical and so we never pursued it – until being approached by this church who had taken it upon themselves to raise the bulk of the money needed for the project!
So where do you come in? Well, while money has been raised to print about 2,000 copies of the book, we would like to see more printed. We also have some additional overhead costs because of adding this “unplanned” project. Would you pray about supporting this project? Our overhead one-time cost for editing and layout is $3,000 and each book costs about $5.00 to print–even sponsoring one additional book would be a huge blessing to a child in Cambodia! As I have been completing the final draft of the book with our translation team, I have been brought to tears multiple times at the beauty of seeing these wonderful stories in the Khmer language. We are praying the Lord would use this book to bring many children and even parents, to faith in Jesus, and deepen the faith of those who already believe.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support as we seek to provide God-glorifying resources to the Cambodian people.
