Even though this year has been difficult, there is much to celebrate. God’s Word continues to provide hope and comfort!

We are privileged to have more than 400 versions of the Bible in English. What a gift! This may be surprising, but 90% of the languages in the world don’t have the full Bible (representing over a billion people). In addition, about 200 million people don’t have a single verse of Scripture in their language.

September 30th – Bible Translation Day – is a day set apart to celebrate the work of Bible translation across the globe. More than 50 years ago, Wycliffe founder Cameron Townsend proposed this idea to honor the first translator of the whole Bible, St. Jerome.

Celebrate and Pay it Forward

Think of all the times Scripture has lifted your spirit. It’s provided wisdom, peace, purpose, grace and the list goes on!

God wants ALL people to experience His love through His Word.

There are moms, dads, sons and daughters who don’t have:

 

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:13

 

 

 

 

“For it is by grace you have been saved…” – Ephesians 2:8a

 

 

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” –2 Corinthians 12:9

 

In honor of Bible Translation Day, will you give living hope to those still waiting to hear from Him today?

Partner with us in prayer.

Select a region of the world that interests you, and we will partner you with a people group that needs Scripture. There is nothing more beautiful and rewarding than laboring through prayer and celebrating when a people group receives God’s Word.

Our Momentum Fund helps translation teams whenever there is a gap in financial resources. This fund helps global partners start and finish strong by preventing lapses in funding.
