Making Bible Translations For All People

Each year nearly 2.5 million people die without ever hearing God’s Word in the language that speaks to their heart. Imagine the most important message you and I will ever hear, the message of salvation, isn’t accessible to roughly one third of the World’s languages.That’s more than 2200 people groups without any scripture.Some of them haven’t even heard the name ‘JESUS’.

When you read God’s word in your own language, there’s something that touches the deepest level of who you are and it changes you, it changes the way you think, it changes your heart, it changes your life.

God’s word brings a message of joy, a message of hope, a message of eternal life. Everyone should have the chance to hear God speak in the language they understand best and Wycliffe work is critical to seeing that happen. Its not only printed scripture for eg. the script for the JESUS film is most often produced from translations from the gospel of Luke completed by Wycliffe. Audio recordings of the gospel are also produced from these translations.

Scriptures translated by Wycliffe result in churches planted, including materials for evangelism and discipleship. Translation is a foundational and critical component in the final task of reaching the last people on Earth with the gospel. Because the need is so urgent, Wycliffe along with our partners has committed to starting a Bible translation project in every language that needs it by the year 2025. That’s more than 2200 translations in the next 17 years. Roughly 130 translations must be started every year or one every three days. Humanly speaking this goal might seem impossible. But God specializes in the impossible.

The number of Bible translation need is dropping rapidly down from 3000 just eight years ago and we are coming to understand that in our lifetime it’s possible that we will see the last Bible translation need started. It can be done in this generation but we need your help.

We are inviting you to participate with us in something historic, starting the last Bible translations for the last languages. We are asking for your prayers, your time and your financial partnership in reaching these last language communities. This is your opportunity to help provide God’s word to those still waiting to hear the great love story of God, in a language that speaks to their hearts. Watch the Video clip above. The Audio in the clip starts only after some time. Be patient and have a look.

St. Alphonsa Canonization Videos

Pope Benedict XVI has given the Roman Catholic church four new saints, including an Indian woman, Sister Alphonsa whose canonization is seen as a morale boost to Christians in India. Catholics are a tiny minority in India and thousands of faithful, including an Indian delegation, turned out for Sunday’s ceremony in St. Peter’s Square. (Watch these canonization video clips for more details on the canonization).

The honour for Sister Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception, the first Indian woman to become a saint, comes as Christians increasingly have been the object of attacks from Hindus in eastern and southern India. Pope Benedict XVI raised concern over the attacks on Christians in some states of India. “My prayers are with Christians there (in India) in these difficult times,” said Pope. (Watch the Video below to see Pope Benedict XVI addressing all Indians, in English)

Recently, there have been attacks on the Christian community in Orissa, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The attacks began after the death of Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Swami Laxmanand Saraswati at Kandhmal in Orissa, India.

Benedict’s predecessor, John Paul II, had beatified Alphonsa during a pilgrimage to India in 1986. Beatification is the last formal step before sainthood, the Church’s highest honour for its faithful. Alphonsa, a nun from southern India, was 35 when she died in 1946.

Many Indians, mostly Malayalees came to Rome to see their beloved Si.Alphosa become St. Alphonsa. Because St. Alphonsa lived in Kerala, (God’s Own Country) in India and the people there are called Malayalees as they speak the language Malayalam. There was even a malayalam song sung by Keralites on the occassion of Canonization in Rome.

The other three new saints are:–  Gaetano Errico, a Neapolitan priest who founded a missionary order in the 19th century; Sister Maria Bernarda, born Verena Buetler in Switzerland in 1848, who worked as a nun in Ecuador and Colombia; and Narcisa de Jesus Martillo Moran, a 19th century laywoman from Ecuador who helped the sick and the poor.

“May their examples give us encouragement, their teachings give us direction and comfort,” Benedict said in his homily.

We all know Mother Teresa, a Nobel Peace Prize-winning nun from India. The ethnic Albanian came to India as a young woman to work with India’s most desperately poor, mostly in Calcutta, India. She died in 1997 and John Paul beatified her in 2003. So now, all Indians are expecting their next saint in Mother Teresa, even though they realize that there are lots of procedures for sainthood even after beatification.

Video : Sunday is coming

The story of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion is one of betrayal, brutality, despair, and pain. Yet we know even before His death that redemption was promised to be coming soon. We know that the story does not end at the cross. We know what many did not realize — that Sunday’s coming.

This beautiful video reminds me of the song “Sunday!” by Tree63. The chorus says “It’s Friday, but Sunday comin'”.

This is a powerful reminder that sunday is indeed coming (again) and though satan may reign on earth for a period of time, Jesus will return and establish his reign forever.
