Tahanuka always hoped he would still be alive to hold the finished New Testament
An elderly man named Tahanuka had been looking forward to reading the Scriptures in his own Yopno language. When the Gospel of John was published several years ago, he bought a copy and read it frequently. He is advanced in years and looks forward to his home with Jesus. He asked translator Wes Reed to highlight Scriptures about heaven for him. Wes highlighted John 14:2 "I go to prepare a place for you," and other verses that talk about his eternal home. Tahanuka had been concerned that he might not live until God's book arrived, with the complete New Testament and Psalms. Although he has had some difficult times, with great joy he attended the New Testament dedication only a few weeks ago.
