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

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.

Prayer Watch: Upcoming Banquets

The Spring Coming Alive Banquets continue, and Area Directors are all traveling to the meeting locations. Some traveling longer distances than others.

Pray that the meetings will have good attendance and attentive audiences. Ask the Lord to open hearts and lead each one to know how He wants them to participate in Bible translation.

Mobile App Developers Needed!

We have a project intended to equip churches with a new suite of mobile apps to distribute newly translated Scripture to their communities. One of these new apps will link code in an image file with video clips associated with specific passages in the Bible. Another will allow people to securely save specific biblical materials to a drive so that they cannot be erased, thus allowing for swift distribution in areas where Christians cannot freely travel.
