congrats I really appreciate them
My humble request to all those who are conducting the bible quiz:-
1. they should try to arrange more and more bible quiz all over the world,because the percentage of our religion stands first in the world.
2. Every college or school there should be a religion subject.
Although I am not aware of all this thing but any way keep up your work
