As of today, 13,000 Thadou New Testaments have been printed, bound, and are now ready to ship.
The Thadous are people of an ethnic tribe native to northeastern India and eastern Bangladesh. They are one of the largest Tribes among the Kukis with a total population of 300,000. Of those, nearly 200,000 live in the India state of Manipuri. Additionally, they live in the adjoining nations of Myanmar and Bhutan. In 2012, the revision of the Thadou New Testament was approved by the Trinitarian Bible Society for publication. In 2014, after the completion of the typesetting, the files were sent to Bearing Precious Seed, plates were made, and the Thadou NT was rolling off the press. The funding for the New Testaments was provided by Pembina Valley Baptist Church of Winkler, Manitoba, Canada, and Pensacola Christian College.
