A Young Girl Tries to Buy a Bible! 
This is a true story of a girl called Mary Jones. As soon as she can read the large Bible at the Evans’ old farmhouse, Mary makes up her mind to buy a copy for herself. 
After six years she has saved enough money, but there is the long journey over the Welsh mountains to Bala. And then she hears that there are no Bibles for sale! 
As the story unfolds you will see how a girl, a preacher, a school master who couldn’t read or write – and other people – are slowly being drawn together to start something that can’t be stopped. Mary Jones and her Bible is just the beginning of a story that is still going on today.
