A new Bible translation

http://www.youtube.com/embed/evMyOQ-vle8

A tribe in West Papua (Indonesia) receiving the Bible for the first time in their own language! it is amazing to see the people crying and celebrating. I think it is easy to forget how we have hundreds of versions of any book, in dozens of different formats…and some people are still, only now, having their language codified and written down! For the first time! IN the 21st century!

Speechless.
