In our hearts we carry this vision: to see every person with the Word of God, translated into their mother tongue, in their hands. Training, literacy, and all the other aspects of what we do circle around to this one goal. We are Gospel-laden. We are driven by our passion for the Bible and for people, and by the knowledge that God wants every tribe and every nation to know that He loves them and speaks their language.
But “we” includes so much more than the members and workers of The Word for the World. “We” includes you! 1 Corinthians 12:27 says, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” (NIV.) Only when we all work together can we fulfill the vision for every person to have the Bible in their mother tongue. Only when we all work together will we see the Gospel of Jesus Christ reach every corner of the earth.
You are just as much part of the work of Bible translation as we are. Thank you for partnering with us and being co-workers with us in this important mission! May God richly bless you and encourage you as you continue to work alongside us to bring about this vision.
