Over the years, many AiG books, booklets, videos, and other resources have been translated into numerous languages (over 75 now). Here is the latest addition to our foreign language translations:
Urdu is spoken by 65 million people in Pakistan and five states in India. We praise the Lord that this is our first-ever publication in the Urdu language, and we pray it certainly will not be the last.
15,000 copies are being printed in Pakistan and will be distributed free of charge in that country. Pakistan is in the news a lot recently, and we are so pleased that AiG Worldwide has this translation available in their “heart language.” Very little Christian literature is translated into Urdu, and we know this booklet will be a great blessing.
So many of these dear people face death and suffering everyday of their lives, and we pray that the booklet will bring answers and comfort to a hurting people group.
The translator of the booklet said the following:
This book really speaks to the Pakistan people and the many life problems they face. The Christian population will be greatly encouraged by AiG’s booklet.Diana Crandall, translation director, indicated that the contact with the translator was indeed of the Lord: to find a Christian in Pakistan who is a young-earth, six-literal-day creationist is quite amazing. In fact, because of the contact, the translator will be attending the AiG All-Asian Creation Conference in Malaysia in November, 2011.
