Videos of Bible dedications

I wish everyone could attend a Bible dedication in their lifetime!  We've been to 2 of them  and the day (or perhaps a week of festivities) is full of energy and excitement!  There is feasting, dancing, singing and many speeches. It's a culmination of a lot of years of hard work and perseverance and a time when the translators say, "Yes, it's worth it all!"  We were able to hand out Bibles at one dedication and what a privilege it was!  People were so thankful and many gave me bilums (string bags) as a way of saying thanks.  Their excitement and enthusiasm made me appreciate God's Word in English all the more. What would it be like to not have God's Word in my own language?
