Wycliffe Bible Translators recently celebrated their 3,000 translated Bible! It’s so great to be part of an organization that is ridding the world of Bible Poverty.
Thank you for your part! Less than 2,000 Bibles to go!
There is a popular television show running (which I’ve never seen). It’s title is This is Us.
As I sat and read what our partner Wycliffe Associates accomplished last year, which included the work of Ken, I thought, “No, THIS is us.”
Your prayers and financial support allowed Ken to take a multitude of trips in order to support our national Bible Translators. Together, much was accomplished.
Here are the stats:
Currently Accelerating the work of Bible translation in 76 countries
Last year mobilized 7,097 volunteer and staff members to advance the cause of Bible translation throughout the world in 76 countries
Installed 544 Bible Translation Acceleration Kits (BTAKs) in 48 countries for 788 language communities since started installing BTAKs
315 new translation projects started in 2016 using Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation (MAST) workshops
Improved hundreds of facilities for Bible translation around the world
Nicely done, partners.
It’s so wonderful to see people using their God-given gifts. Often times it doesn’t even feel like work for them.
Ken’s work includes training nationals on Bible translation software. Since everyone learns in different ways, he always includes a variety of modalities when he teaches. Although each course is different, he often teaches and demonstrates how to use the software and/or has the course participants read the material on their own. This is often accompanied by a related video, practicing the concept alone, or solidifying their newly learned material by demonstrating it to their classroom neighbor.
In his most recent trip, Ken created a support document and sent it to our Indonesian counterparts in advance so they could translate it into bahasa Indonesian for the class. They could now read in their Mother Tongue, the language that not only speaks to the heart but facilitates comprehension in the head, to learn the software. We love it when people can use their own language to learn as well as to read God’s Words! Having documentation in your own language is a big deal for our colleagues.
Thank you for your support so that we can use our gifts for the Kingdom of God!
It’s been a long time in the making, but Anne has finally graduated from college. On Friday, May 6, she received her B.S. in Communications with a concentration in Interpersonal and Organizational Communications.
We are so grateful for all who prayed for us and donated funds to make this happen. She graduated debt free. We enjoyed a weekend of celebrating with friends and family including a surprise visit from daughter Christine.
