Daily Topic for November 14, 2012
The Word is living and active! The Holy Spirit uses it every day to convict people of their own sin and God’s righteousness. It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart in such a way that we are reminded that we must constantly repent of our sins and re-direct our lives to ways that please the Lord.
Thank Him that you have His Word in your own language. Thank Him that you have all you need to understand God’s daily directions.
Abdullah was ready to do something daring, but he still looked around the cybercaf� before finding the web site that included Bible translations.

The Munji people group lives in a part of Afghanistan that is being fought over by the Taliban and the American-led coalition. Many Munji families like the one described above have fled to refugee camps in Pakistan.

Although some Munjis can read, there isn’t a single scripture portion in their language.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that a mission agency would be led to translate the Bible into the Munji language. Pray that Bible translation work will be followed up by radio broadcasts, gospel recordings, the JESUS Film, and other non-printed resources. Pray also that peace will be restored in Afghanistan, so that efforts to reach them with the message of salvation won’t be hindered.
