Speeding toward the Finish Line

18 Jul

Here are some Bible Translation numbers!

The first 500 translations took 67 years to complete. The next 500 took only 17 years. The 1,000th completed translation occurred this year which was for the Keliko people of South Sudan. 

There are approximately 2000 spoken languages around the world that still await a translation project to begin!

*More than 1,500 languages have access to the New Testament and some portions of the Scripture.

* More than 650 languages have the complete Bible.

* At least 7000 spoken or signed languages are known today.

*In terms of population, China represents one third of the translation need. That’s a lot of people!

Won’t you stop and pray for these people groups right now?
How will God use you in this task?
