This week the churches and government of the Solomon Islands presented a Pijin Bible to visiting Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester. I was talking to one the aids that travels with the Duke and Duchess and mentioned that they should really take a Bible back to the Queen. Queen Elizabeth is the patron of the British Bible Society and earlier this year the society raised a lot of money to help fund the printing of the Pijin Bible so it can be sold at an affordable price here. (The Pijin Bible costs about $9.00 USD.)
Today a Pijin Bible and a letter to the Queen went on their way to London with the diplomatic mail bag. It will be exciting to receive a letter back from Buckingham Palace!
