For Those Living Without the Bible
Imagine not being able to read John 3:16 and understand God’s love in your language, or find comfort in Isaiah 40 . . . for millions of people, this is their reality! They live in a Bibleless world—thousands of language groups don’t have God’s Word available to them in their heart language. But there is a solution!
Accelerating Bible Translation
Today, we empower and equip national Bible translators—native speakers—to translate Scripture into their heart language using resources and tools provided through MAST (Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation) workshops under the guidance and authority of the local church. Because these national Bible translators are native language speakers—and they are using resources and tools created by linguists and software specialists—they are able to complete translation of the Scriptures quickly and accurately!
Around the world, word is spreading that MAST is the way for churches to have God’s Word in their language and share the truth with their neighbors.
God’s Word Brings Transformation
Thousands of donors and prayer partners have caught the vision of a Bible in every language! Together these passionate men and women are ensuring national Bible translators have everything they need to get God’s Word into their heart language . . . transforming entire communities and people groups.
Because of the work of national Bible translators supported by faithful donors, prayer partners, and volunteers, people are hearing the truth.
“The first day that I played [the audio Bible in Kekchi] in the church, a whole family accepted Christ. I believe it is because the Bible itself says that the Word of God has power. Since that happened, wherever I go, the New Testament in Kekchi goes with me. Almost in every new place that I play it, several people accept Christ. The most beautiful of all is that it is in our own language.”
