My name is Jill Davis.
In 2012, my birthday fell on 12-12-12. I think thought this was really cool. A recurring thought: wouldn’t it be cool to DO SOMETHING different for my 28th birthday? I’ve prayed about what this would be — and I spent YEAR 27 doing a few things:
1. Sponsoring translation of a book of the Bible into another language. Through OneVerse.org, we worked to raise needed funds to translate the equivalent of the book of John into the heart language of the Ehty people in South Asia. That’s 879 verses at $26/verse. Yeah…that’s a lot and I STILL need your help. You can do this now or you can commit to giving every month.
2. I blogged everyday for a whole year! Now that Year 27 is over, this blog exists to post new verses as I create them!
3. I celebrated! On Dec. 12, 2012, we had a HUGE part for YEAR 27. Over 75 people gathered at a local coffee shop to see all of the verses on this blog on display in printed form AND we raised A LOT of money to translate the Bible. You should check out these posts about the party: Post 1 and Post 2
