Bible Translation & Distribution
“Prayer does not equip us for the greater work,
prayer is the greater work.”
~ Oswald Chambers
WHAT IS THE NEED?
There are about 7,000 languages known to be in active use today, and at least one book of Scripture exists in almost 2,900 of these languages.
- At least 1.3 billion people do not have the full Bible in their first language.
- Over 634 million of these have the New Testament; others have portions or at least some level of Bible translation work begun.
Current estimates suggest that around 180 million people speaking at least 1,860 languages are understood to ‘likely need Bible Translation to begin.’ These people cannot hear God speak to them in the language they understand best. Perhaps they have access to Scriptures in another language, but the impact is different when you hear the gospel message in the language you speak at home.
Join the growing global prayer movement for Bible Translation ministries. God is accomplishing His mission through His power and through partnership. Ministries such as Wycliffe Global Alliance, The Seed Company, United Bible Society etc, and churches are working together in many ways so that many more people will have access to God’s Word in the language they understand best.
SUCH PARTNERSHIP BEGINS AND IS SUSTAINED BY PRAYER
We’re on a Mission to see ALL Languages
have Scripture by 2025.
PRAY FOR ZERO
Pray for Zero is an International Prayer Movement dedicated to the provision of God’s Word and kingdom among the remaining unreached, Bibleless peoples.
There are currently over 2,000 people groups without access to any Scripture in their language.
Through social media and regional prayer gatherings, we connect God’s people to the goal of seeing all remaining translation projects started within this next decade.
PRAY FOR ORAL LEARNERS
There are ±5.2 billion oral learners in the world with the minority of resources attempting to reach them for Christ. The vast majority of outreach work today is conducted through literate means that these oral learners do not understand.
The remaining Unreached Unengaged People Groups are predominantly oral societies
