Fallen Kiwi Soldier’s Bible Finds It’s Way Home After 93 Years

Truly a phenomenal account of God watching over His Word, this is an awe inspiring story of how a fallen kiwi soldier’s lost Bible found its way back home to him  and his  family, after 93 years had passed.

Richard Cook was a young man when he went off to fight in WWI, taking his beloved Bible along, and he died near Passchendaele on October 10, 1917, aged 26 and never returned to his home in Colac Bay, west of Invercargill.

Before he died he had lost his bible in a trench near Messines, in Belgium, in June 1917 and it probably lay there until it was found the next year. In April, 1918, it was covered in mud when it was found by British soldier, Herbert Hodgson, 25, who fell into the trench.

Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD
