In the beginning of last year, SOW started to make Arabic Book of Esther, which involves translation, dubbing, Video graphic text replacement, printing and so on. This project will take about 1 year and about $50,000 to make.We thank God for His provision and many brothers and sisters’ s financial support, we raised $8700 so far.
This Spring, we will finish this production of Arabic Book of Esther. 2000 copies of the Arabic Bible study material sets will be printed in Egypt. They will be widely distributed though our partner in Egypt and other Arabic speaking regions. Also, they will be utilized in local Arabic church communities.
We truly hope that you can join us to support this meaningful project and complete the first Arabic version of these bible study material. We believe it will benefit a lot of Arabic speaking people both here in the US and abroad. May “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)
