Read brief news updates about Bible Society work happening in Uzbekistan, Japan and Vietnam.
The Bible Society of Uzbekistan hopes that obtaining Bibles, such as this one, will become easier in the future.
The government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, a predominantly Muslim country, has allowed a long-awaited container load of Bibles to come into the country. Bible Society hopes this will mean an easing on religious restrictions in the future.
In the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster, Bible Society has been visiting churches, schools and relief centres supplying Bibles and Manga children’s Bibles. It also organised a charity concert in Fukushima to support affected people.
The government of Vietnam has granted Bible Society permission to print and distribute more Bibles within the country. The Vietnam Bible Society Co. Ltd will operate throughout the whole of Vietnam, compared to the pre-1975 era when Bible Society only served in South Vietnam.
