With God, anything is possible!

Continual training of translators form a crucial part of Bible translation. In some areas in Ethiopia, the trainers encounter many difficult situations. The roads, infrastructure and poor weather conditions can make it difficult to reach translation teams.

The knowledge that God is the provider, and that He makes a way where there seems to be none, keeps the dedicated members of the TWFTW focused on the goal of eradicating Bible poverty in Ethiopia. Therefore, they press forward to complete the task set before them.

In Ethiopia, TWFTW is currently busy with 23 translation projects. That is 23 language groups that are yearning to have the Bible in their heart language for the first time! We are so thankful that the Maale Bible was recently completed, launched and distributed!

Please continue your support through prayer!

“…I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19

The Lambya Scripture brings Joy!

The Word of God in the Lambya language is bringing joy to people’s hearts. TWFTW are working in cooperation with the Seed Company to help bring this joy to the Lambyan speaking community of Malawi.

Since the launch of the New Testament in 2016, people can read and understand the message of love and hope in their heart language. Now preachers and chaplains can clearly teach the true message of the Bible. The Bible speaks directly to people’s hearts.

The aim now is to have Psalms, Isaiah, Joel, Hosea Habakkuk and Malachi in print by 2020.

Please keep praying for the TWFTW translators, consultants and all parties involved working towards this goal!

“The Word became flesh…”

As we approach the end of 2016 we have more reasons to be grateful for than we can even begin to quantify.  We have seen Vision 2050 (completing translation of the entire Bible in 500 languages by 2050) beginning to unfold, with many developments within the organization to keep pace with the growth in our work.  

Thank you for partnering with us, as organization, church or individual, financially, in intercession or whatever manner God has led you, to be involved.

Let us praise God together for his many blessings, and be careful to give Him all glory.

Contemplating members and partners of TWFTW, I was reminded of the beautiful verse of Scripture in Isaiah 52.7 (NIV):
 
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation…

The work of Bible translation is exactly that:  bringing good news … peace …good tidings … salvation.

All of this is possible only because the Word of God became a human and lived among us. I pray that your Christmas will center around the person of Jesus Christ.

May 2017 bring the fulfillment of as many of your desires as you can handle in one year!
