Unity is important when it comes to followers of Christ – this is just one of the ways that the rest of the world can see that we belong to Jesus.

Some versions say “hidden” instead of “stored up.” Either way, fill up your heart with God’s Word and let it transform your life!
Sponsor a verse today…don’t forget to give before April 1…our goal is to have a total of 79 verses sponsored before the end of March.
My friend Deedra Bowles is a computer guru. She sent me an idea for a verse using LANGUAGE that this familiar to her – LANGUAGE she uses all the time. This doodle is a collaboration – a meeting of the minds (and languages). YEAR 27 is all about bringing the Bible to the Ehty people in their own heart language. This is the language that is familiar to them – the language they use every day – the language that they would use to cry out to God.
When you look at Deedra’s computer language, it might look like a jumbled mess to you, but to Deedra it is clear, it makes perfect sense. This is how people around the world might feel when they do not have the Bible in their own heart language – it may seem a jumbled mess when they hear someone try to share a verse with them that is not in the language they know best. I’m praying that the Ehty will be able to hear and read and respond to the Bible in their heart language. I’m praying that when they hear Romans 10:9 in their own language, that they will cry out to God!
“…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 (ESV)
Give the gift of ONE VERSE to the Ehty people today. Here’s how.
Today’s guest post is by my friend Kathryn McHenry. Kathryn is a student at Black Hills State University. We met last fall when Kathryn attended our church here in Spearfish. We’ve become good friends and she has been a huge blessing as we are getting to know people in Spearfish (sometimes it is lonely to live in a new place). I’m excited that Kathryn wanted to do a verse for YEAR 27! Thanks girl!
You can be involved with YEAR 27, too. Sponsoring just ONE VERSE for the Ehty people means that they will have ONE MORE VERSE of the Bible in their own heart language. Every verse is a BIG deal when you don’t have the Bible in your own heart language! Click here to sponsor a verse.
