Bible Translation Safe Haven Center
Courageous national Bible translators need a safe haven.
There are regions around the world where our brothers and sisters in Christ face persecution and danger. Multitudes of people are desperately hungry for the truth, but to translate and distribute the Scriptures is to risk persecution, arrest, prison, or worse.
Believers in these regions are resolutely determined to carry on the work of Bible translation for the sake of sharing the gospel with their families, friends, and neighbors. These courageous translators simply cannot work safely in their own communities any longer.
Under intense scrutiny, they’re suffering persecution, and they risk the same fate as those who have already been taken by the authorities. They need a safe haven.
We have located a safe place where we can establish a place of refuge for Bible translators. Here they will not only be able to work (and more effectively than ever in continuous collaboration) but also rest, receive training, and, perhaps most important of all, worship together in peace. If other national translators are driven out of their communities, they can escape here, recharge their batteries, and continue the work the Lord has called them to do.
It will take $150,000 to build and equip this safe house. This budget will not only outfit the facility with necessary training tools, technology, and supplies, but also with Print On Demand equipment which will enable translators to immediately print the Scriptures as well as evangelism and discipleship materials for their language communities.

The MAST Program of Bible translation is being requested by national church leaders around the world.
