Keyboards for ALL!

Keyboard

I like that our partner organization, SIL, has created something necessary for so many people around the world. With technology often favoring well known languages it leaves millions of people at a loss when they want to use the computer.

We love languages! God created them all! Being able to type a language is important for Bible Translation.

So proud that this is now available. Give it a try here if you can use it for your own work!

Can you imagine?

Can you imagine moving away from your home country? Can you imagine saying goodbye to family members, knowing that you’ll probably not see them for the next four years? Can you imagine trying to quickly adjust to a new culture while trying to unpack, shop, and get over jet lag?

The Winkler’s are a new family that have just arrived in Nigeria in order to work for Wycliffe Bible Translators. They are tired, scared, and trying to adjust. This video reminded me of arriving in Indonesia in 1992 for the first time. Excited, but wow, what a change! This is the second of their videos. If you’re brave, you can watch the first one when they said goodbye to their family. Warning: It may make you cry! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rV40htr00Cg&feature=related

Yup, we’re published! And you helped!

Did you know that if an author has one of his works published in 20 languages there is a big celebration? And if he or she is published in 30, 40 or more languages? Well, there’s some partying going on!

Did you know that Wycliffe Bible Translators along with our partners, such as SIL, Wycliffe Associates, and The Seed Company have had a book or part of a book translated in at least 2,479 languages?

Wow! We need a party every year. And you all should be the first to be invited! You have been a part of getting all or part of the best book, the BIBLE, translated into thousands of languages across the world. This work has been done not just for large community groups but for small ones too! Some groups have 5,000 or fewer people using that language! But if it’s a viable language, we think they need to hear God’s word in the language that speaks to their heart.

So thanks! We should be able to celebrate with more parties in the coming year! Come join us.
