Praise and Prayer

Praise: The Bible is a bestseller in Mongolia. One day after the first Mongolian Bible went on sale, all 10,000 copies were sold, missionary Rick Leatherwood said in his newsletter. "I felt like Peter at Jesus' tomb," he said, when he saw the empty storage site that had been full the day before. Leatherwood and a team of translators from several missions agencies have worked several years to produce a Bible in the Mongolian language. The church in the formerly communist country has grown from fewer than 50 people in 1991 to about 10,000 today, he said.
