(Nigeria)–Meanwhile, some 370-thousand of the World Bible Translation Center’s Easy-to-Read English Bibles were distributed in a single day on November 11th at a conference for church leaders in Ibadan, Nigeria. WBTC officials say that set a record for their ministry, citing it as the largest single-day Bible distribution in their history. Each of the more than 70-thousand Nigerian church leaders who found a seat at the meeting was also given five Bibles to further their outreach. This was an effort by the WBTC to place one million Bibles in the hands of Africa’s poor.
