Scripture Reading:

Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. Ephesians 6:19


Bible translation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been challenging to say the least. Years of unrest and violence have caused Bible translation teams to be pulled out of the country time and again. But we keep going back because God’s people in the DRC continue to plead for His Word in their language. They know it’s their only true hope.

Five MAST workshops that took place in the DRC triggered an avalanche of newly translated Scriptures for numerous language groups—and bringing much-needed hope to this struggling nation.

Prayer Watch: Let's All Rejoice in the Lord today!

Let’s all rejoice in the Lord today! He created mankind in His image. He alone is the mighty God who saves. He loves us and gives us life abundantly. He continues to do marvelous things around the world. We delight in His goodness to us, but even more we delight in His goodness to the hundreds of language groups who are today translating God’s Word into their heart languages. I get so excited every time I think of people finally receiving God’s Word in their heart language. Don’t you?

Just think, you and I have a part in God’s work around the world. That, my friend, is pretty awesome.

Faith Comes by Hearing in Papua New Guinea

The night was especially dark, and the jungle sounds somehow were more intense than usual. A group of villagers had gathered around a fire outside a thatch hut, to hear Bible stories being told by our Wycliffe Associates Global Oral Language Translation Coordinator.

From the darkness outside, a shadowy figure slipped toward the group, taking shape as it moved into the light of the fire. It was an elderly man known to the villagers as the Tumbuna (or grandparent). As he began to speak, one of the other villagers translated.

“As a young boy, my parents told me stories from the Bible,” the Tumbuna said. “I know there is more, so I have come every time you have spoken and tried to understand. But I cannot.”

Would-Be Hindu Monk Sings a New Song

As Hiran helped translate the Scriptures into his heart language, God spoke to him.

Countless blessings are emanating from our Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation (MAST) training events. Churches are taking ownership of Bible translation projects in their communities. Groups of national translators are working in tandem to translate the Scriptures faster than ever before. And the lives of many of the translators are being transformed through the power of God’s Holy Word.

Hiran* is one such Bible translator. This educated young man from South Asia had committed to becoming a Hindu monk, but when he learned about a MAST workshop in his community and the opportunity to translate the Scriptures into his heart language, he agreed to help. His team of translators was one of four language groups that set out to translate the New Testament.
