34 top languages; China in The Guardian

Wikipedia has a list of the 34 top nations for number of speakers- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_total_number_of_speakers and www.easyBibles.co.uk is involved in all but 2 of them.

Also in The Guardian we can now read of Chinese billionaire –

The Chinese billionaire founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba has sent coronavirus supplies to Africa. Jack Ma sent a cargo flight from Guangzhou in China containing more than 6m medical items, which arrived today in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. The supplies will be distributed to African countries in need of resources to battle the virus.

According to Ethiopian officials and the Jack Ma Foundation, the plane carried 5.4m face masks, 1.08m testing kits, 40,000 sets of protective clothing and 60,000 protective face shields. Ma has sent similar shipments of medical supplies to countries in Asia, Europe, North America and Latin America.

The virus has been slow to reach Africa but has now spread to at least 42 of the continent’s 54 countries.

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting China 7x – mainly Shanghai and by coach to Zhoukou -where a Mr Ma has a Bible College and hospital on the site where Hudson Taylor planted his first inland church. He had to report to officials in Beijing monthly. A good man. There are probably lots of Mr Mas in China. Perhaps it means Smith or Jones.

But let’s praise God for China’s helpful leadership against the virus. !!
