One of Galcom International’s long-time partners is Alex Muir from Pioneers Canada. He has made countless trips to Bolivia to hand out Galcom radio/audio Bibles to the Quechua (see the post from December 8, 2016). Below is an excerpt from his latest praise and prayer letter.
“Reports continue to surface of how lives have been transformed and communities have been impacted. On our last trip in April, great joy was expressed when the people realized they had the Word of God as well as a radio. Now, with the audio Bibles, there is an additional option for them as they can listen to “God’s Story” taking them from Creation to the cross. How exciting!
Leandro in Colquacheca has requested we bring some 800 Bible Radios to the mining town where once it seemed we would not be welcomed. After four years of visiting families, Alejandro was able to provide a list of 32 families who wanted a Bible/radio. We responded and gave out 60+ audio Bibles/radios. Recently Segundino came to Greg (Greg is Alex’s son. He married a Quechua young lady and has remained there. He and his wife now minister amongst the Quechua). Segundino presented him with a shaman’s (witch doctor) bag. This was the indication that he now was a follower of Jesus and did not want to practice evil anymore. The bag and contents were quickly destroyed. How we rejoice that this man of influence is now a new creation in Christ!
PRAISE BE TO GOD: For the 48000+ Bible/radios have been handed out in Bolivia and for those who give so Galcom can provide our radios.
OCTOBER 2017: Plan to join us and celebrate…our September team will hand out the 50,000th (Galcom) Bible/radio in Bolivia!”
