I just came back from the distribution on 2nd May, after travelling the whole day and the whole night. I went to Kasama and picked up the Taabua New Testaments in Mpulungu.I had to hire a truck to Kaputa as the mini buses could not accommodate this load.
I met some guys who came from Lusaka (from Campus Crusade) who were showing the Jesus Film in Bemba. One of them is the son of the newly installed chief Kaputa. He came to me and said, “I want to buy two copies of Kitaabua New Testaments for my father since he is from the Taabua tribe.” He was very excited and he was saying he now has a big gift to give to his father and mother!
We hired a truck to take 76 boxes of Kitaabua New Testaments to Lambwechomba on the Zambian border. We distributed them in Kaputa district and the Musosa village in the Congo. We strategized on how to distribute these Testaments in Moba, Kalemie and in all Taabua speaking villages. The only way to transport these Testaments is by bicycles. One person could only carry two boxes on the back of a bicycle at a charge of $10.
