It is their participation in the 15-year-pld Worldwide Bible Reading program, sponsored by the American Bible Society and similar groups in other countries. The program is aimed at having millions of persons read the same Bible passages each day from Thanksgiving to Christmas in a mass act of faith that makes a single Christian community of a large part of the world. The participation of widely- scattered and diverse peoples in such a program is made possible by a unique distribution system employing a dedicated army of 5,000. They are called colporteurs *- Many Time was when people talktd about "everything but the kitchen sink." Nowadays, modern homemakers have learned that "everything" is likely to be in the kitchen sink — th« modern cabinet sink, that is, Modern materials and modern designs have made is possible to turn the once homely sink into an attractive, streamlined cabinet ge which harmonized with other appliances and performs a central role in efficient kitchen operation. Gives Needed Space There's almost always a shortage of storage space in the kitchen and the cabinet sink provides an eminently sensible solution to the problem of creating additional storage facilities. He steel construe, tign not only provides a strong, permanent storage area but also guarantees that maintenance and cleaning will take a minimum of time, >Ietal construction does away with cracks or crevices which might collect dirt ?nd the lasting exterior finish stands up well even after extreme usage. For many women new sinks have a particular appeal because buying a new sink is the biggest single slep one can take to update a kitchen. As a matter of fact, many kitchen remodelers recommend that any step by step remodeling plan should start with a new sink and surrounding cabinets. From this foundation one can build on, adding additional special purpose cabinets and new appliances as time and budget permit. The standardized dimensions of steel sinks and cabinets make such a program particularly feasible. Nor have designers stopped their development work by rawely glamorizing the old , fashioned sink The 2,900-mile.lpng Congo River is known as the "King Dl the African Rivers." Al» though not as long ag the Nile (4,160 miles), the Congo hap the greatest volume of water flowing through it of any Afrl- c»n river. On the Congo end iU tributaries, there are almost 8,000 miles of navigable waterways, many sections of which are unpayable because of rapids and waterfalls. with an exterior of useful cabine space. N#w functions Added New designers are appearing on 'market which add new func- (ions to the sink. One firm has introduced a "servi-center" which includes automatically timed electric outlets for small appliance cookery, a dispenser to supply detergent, and hand lotion, a light for the sink bowl, and a series of easy-to-clean tije-out storage bins Well aware of the usefulness of cabinet sinks and that such new innovations are being made, it's little wonder that the modern housewife would be considerably more than pleased to see one of these automatic electric sinks in her kitchen on Christmas morning, For her, it truly wpuld be a White Christmas. French word identifying porters who carry trays around their necks — and their job is to give away and to sell the scriptures on a door-to-door basis around the world. Some are paid by the American Bible Society or one of its affiliated organizations. Some work part-time, but most perform heir tasks without pay as a labor of devotion and conviction. They arry out their mission in ancient 'etid cities and in remote, harsh areas where poverty is so abap- ute as to be indescribable. The colporteurs represent a relatively modern means of Bible distribution even though the Bible itself has been a guidjng influence over mankind's values and conduct since Christianity 3egan. For it was largely during the past century that the Bible was translated into a sufficient number of languages to make it comprhensible and available to most of the peoples on earth. In the 1,900 year? that the Bible has existed as a book, some part of it has been published in 1,)27 languages and dialects, The entire Bible has been translated into 215 languages. When printing was invented 500 years ago the Bible existed 'in 33 tongues. From that time until Bible societies were organized early in the 1800s, the scriptures were iplated and published in only 71 languages, There remain more than 1,000 languages and dialects in which no part of the Bible has been published — a task e^ual to the one it has taken five centuries to accomplish, As the scriptures are published, it is 'the- colporteurs w h o p u t them into the hands of the people. They go about their work in the face of severs hardship — enmity from hostile govern* ments, persecution from state- auppoi'tecj religious authorities, harassment from people who recog- nise that the Bible is an instrument of liberation.
