Bibles heading to Wales to help kindle revival

By February 27, 2004

Wales (MNN/Assist) — Dr. Rochunga Pudaite, who belongs to the former head hunting Hmar tribe of Northern India, is hoping to re-ignite the Welsh Revival that took place 100 years ago, by sending 100,000 Living New Testaments to the people of Wales.

Dr. Pudaite, with Bibles for the World, says the Bible gift is a thank-you to the people of Wales. “It was a Welshman who was brave enough to come to our head hunting village following the great Welsh Revival of 1904 and because of that I also found Christ,” says Pudaite. “His name was Watkin Roberts and so, if a Welshman was willing to come to a head hunting village, why not now a member of a tribe of transformed head hunters providing the Welsh people with New Testaments? want to hunt their hearts for Jesus Christ.”

Dr. Pudaite said that he had learned that less than 3 percent of the Welsh people now go to church. “In view of this, I felt we had to do something about it and so we are printing these 100,000 Living New Testaments New Testaments with a red Welsh insignia on the cover and we are excited about that.

“It is our prayer that this will ignite the flame of revival back again to Wales and them spread also to England and Scotland and then maybe across the world. We are calling for millions of people to pray for that possibility.”
