The Kirundi version of "Great Truths from God's Word" by Dr Leonard Sharp was launched on September 24th by the International Bible Society, Bujumbura. The first version in Kirundi was written by Dr Sharp at Matana in the 1930s and early 1940s for evangelists. An enlarged English version was then produced in the 1970s to assist Bible teaching and support the work of pastors from which this latest Kirundi version has been translated. At the launch Church leaders expressed their thanks to Dr Sharp's daughter Mary, whose vision led to the work being undertaken.
