Give the Word!

It costs $30 to translate one verse of Scripture.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. John 1:1

Every child of God deserves to experience His Word in their own language. When The Word goes local, Bible translation introduces people to the unparalleled love and salvation of Jesus, planting in their hearts a desire to see His Kingdom prosper on earth. Faith, language, literacy, social justice, health and hope grow from these beginnings.

The Jola Felupe Bible translators needed to check their drafts of Scripture with local speakers. However, it was harvest time in their rural area of Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, and most people were out working in their fields. Could the translators find anyone with the time to help them test the drafts? It was doubtful! But the translators enthusiastically pedaled their bikes from one end of the village to the other, speaking with whoever they could find. Some days they did not even have time to eat until 7 pm. It was worth their efforts; they found enough willing people to complete the checking. One man who helped them said, "After reading the text in my own language, I received new things into my heart. So I ask you to help me in prayer so that I can make the decision to give my life to Jesus." #TheWordGoesLocal #BibleTranslation ...
