January 2021 Update

A beautiful sight! This is a pallet of nearly 700 completed buffalo hide Volume 1 books, stacked and drying. After drying for 48 hours, they are moved to the the next station where the leather is inspected, cleaned and conditioned by hand. Then they will move on to final QC, and from there they will be grouped with their counterparts, boxed, and prepped for shipping. 

We are so grateful for your continued prayers, patience, and offers to assist as we have continued to push through to completion. The production has continued to increase in speed, while maintaining the highest standards of quality. Because these are literally handmade books, they are quite labor-intensive and require skilled craftsmen to accomplish many of the tasks involved. The bookbindery continues to labor under the government-imposed constraints of an evening-to-morning curfew, but even so, they have trained additional staff and increased production during the hours they are allowed to be open and working, which has been a great help. 

There is more work ahead, but the end is in sight. We know this has taken much longer that anyone ever thought it would, but we trust that in the end we will all agree that they were well worth the wait. Please continue to remember this project in your prayers as we continue pushing forward to complete as soon as possible.
