Current estimates indicate nearly 1,600 people groups don’t have God’s Word in their heart language. When we learned this, God broke our hearts for the nations and fueled our purpose with Psalm 90:17.
“Establish the work of our hands.” (NKJV)
While some minority people groups are bilingual and are able to read the Bible in their second or even third language, it’s difficult to connect with a message they don’t fully understand. Other communities have no access to God’s Word. People from every nation are searching for truth, love, forgiveness, purpose, and peace–for life that can only be found in Jesus.
Through His Word, God communicates His character, His promises, and His invitation to love, know, and serve Him. How can people know Him when they can’t clearly comprehend the words they hear or read or when they have no Scripture available to them at all?
Bible translation is foundational to every part of Christian ministry–evangelism, discipleship, and church planting. God’s Word transforms lives as people learn to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ.
