Eugene Nider about Dr. Rev. Ephraim S. Alphonse Reid
"For twelve years Ephraim lived among the Valientes, learning not just their language, but also their rich heritage of folklore, legends and tribal history. Ephraim knew the only way the Valiente Indians would know God loved them personally is if they could hear it and read it in their own language. So, prompted by his love for the Indians and his love for God and His Word, Ephraim translated two gospels from the New Testament into their language."
