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, Bible translators and entire Christian communities are suffering persecution, and they risk the same fate as those who have already been taken by the authorities. They need to escape to a safe haven.
We have established safe places of refuge for Bible translators. 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.
Recently a small building was found by a local pastor to be used as safe house. Your generosity will mean secure shelter, food and water, bunks, utilities, computers with software, and a satellite connection to sidestep surveillance by hostile authorities. Necessary equipment and supplies will enable translators to immediately print the Scriptures as well as evangelism and discipleship materials for their language communities.
We have located a safe place where we can establish a place of refuge for Bible translators to rest, work, receive training, and worship together in peace.
