Moving poem! Have you considered sending it to Wycliffe?
The only thing I would change is the title. It seemed less formal than the tone of the poem.

Yes! Very well put, and this message could not be put down easily in poetry form. But since I had a sister who was a missionary, and had to "make" the Bible understandable in a language that had never been put on paper before, I could be symathetic to you, who wrote this poem...Very good!!! I hope the judges like your entry...Helen

Beautiful!
A winner in my eyes!
Excellent job bringing this message in the form of a poem. I really liked how you tied the end to the picture at the beginning.
I personally felt that some of the rhymes seem a little "forced". You may want to watch this in the future. For example, the line "they say with happy pride" feels like it was written just to rhyme with "tide".
I really like the pictures you used - great job!
Truly beautiful. This touched my heart deeply. A drop of water to those who go without truly is a life line. This is a winner. God bless.

Hearty congratulations from one Mozambican missionary to another. Good to get the word out.
