EQUIP 2012-Orlando, FL

Wycliffe, Orlando, USA Headquarters, Go Until God Says No, Ukarumpa, Wycliffe Bible TranslatorsLast month we went to a 2-week training course in Orlando called Equip. It was such an interesting and inspiring time. We learned a lot about how translation works and how important it is to get the Bible to the Bibleless people. Thank you so much for praying for us and providing the money that we needed to go.

One day while we were there, we went into the Discovery Center which is like a Wycliffe Museum. As we walked around, we came to what is known as the tower and we went inside. As we sat in the darkness of the tower, we waited for the program to begin. We learned that there were still over 2,000 language groups that are in the darkness because they don’t yet have a word of Scripture in the language that speaks to their heart. That represents over 350 million people.
Then as the lights began to come on one by one, people expressed the difference having the Scriptures in their language had made in their lives. We were reminded that this was indeed a cause worth giving our lives to.
One woman said that reading the Bible in her national language was like eating a banana with the skin still on it. But having the Bible in her language was as satisfying and delicious as eating a peeled banana.
Hearing these testimonies of transformation got us excited to be apart of the ministry of Wycliffe Bible Translators.

Continue to pray for us in the following ways:

-Our goal date to leave for Papua New Guinea is July 2013.
-Additional funds for a month-long cross-cultural training
in North Carolina in January.

-Pray for our parents who are graciously allowing us to leave them.
