Praying together for: Wycliffe Bible Translators

Wycliffe Bible Translators aims to see all people in the world have the Bible in a language they understand well. When people take the Bible’s message to heart, they are brought to saving faith in Jesus and equipped for discipleship. Their lives are changed, and their churches grow, with lasting impact on whole communities. They want everyone to hear God speak to them as they engage with the Bible in their own language.

To date, 1.5 billion people (that is 1 in 5 people in the world), are still waiting for the Bible in the language that speaks to them best. Wycliffe Bible Translators says it is not right that some of us have free access to the whole Bible while others don’t. They have called us to action, so that Together we can change this.
