Last week was a huge Basque book fair that featured pretty much every piece of Basque literature available. It was a pretty incredible experience to see how much Basque people love their language.

Think about this example…

Everyone in the Basque Country speaks Spanish. That means, if you’re a Basque artist (like a writer or singer) you could have a market of more than 400 million Spanish speakers, simply because you also speak Spanish.

So these Basque writers and singers have intentionally chosen a market of only 1 million Basque speakers (instead of 400 million), simply because they love their language.

So you can see how much it means to people…

Today would you pray that the power of these Basque words would move the gospel in the hearts of Basque speakers.
