Bible storybook for the Tuvan people in Siberia

A local believer has been distributing the new bilingual Tuvan and Russian illustrated children’s Bible storybook among small Tuvan churches in Siberia, including in remote areas. OM EAST provided the design and layout for freshly printed My First Bible; their partners in Russia worked on translation. The Tuvan people typically lived in Yurts but now these round wooden huts are usually only used during summer or, in this case, for church meetings.

“Churches were very happy to receive the My First Bible,” said the local believer. “Pastors and church leaders are asking me for more copies.” 


Please pray the Bible storybook would help children and families know Jesus better. Please pray that families who will be given a copy for Christmas will understand Jesus’ love for them.
