  • Old Testament workshop in Nigeria

    Pray for the three-week Old Testament checking workshop ongoing in Nigeria. Ask God for clear, accurate and natural translation drafts to be the result.

  • Developing a writing system

They also plan to develop a primer for use in teaching the writing system. Pray for God's timing through the whole process. This translator is also leading plans for a linguistic workshop in January.

  • Future work in the Republic of Ireland

    Pray for God’s guidance for the church engagement meeting that begins today (1 December) in Dublin to plan Wycliffe’s future work in the Republic of Ireland.

  • God's help in the details

    Much detailed work goes into getting Scriptures ready for publication. Do all quotes and information in parentheses have both the beginning and ending punctuation symbols? Are all titles and footnotes formatted correctly? Are all the words needing extra explanation in the glossary? Are words spelled consistently through the documents? Pray for the publishing specialists working with language teams in the Central African Republic as they make these detailed checks of the drafted Scripture portions. Pray for clear minds and accuracy as they work, for protection from computer problems and for good progress so people will have access to the Scriptures soon.

  • Media broadcast and distribution issues

    Praise God that the four Gospels and Acts have been printed in one language in South Asia, and that the translation of the New Testament will be finished next year.  Radio and television stations have expressed interest in renewing Scripture media broadcasts after stopping them due to terrorist activities.  As Scripture media is distributed, pray that it would impact lives and that church leaders would actively follow-up with and disciple people.  Foreign funding will cease this month for media work in this language.  Pray that local believers will look to God for provision and find creative ways to continue the work.

  • iDELTA course

    The Francophone i-DELTA course is coming to a close. Give thanks to the Lord for everything he has accomplished during the course. Please pray for teachers and participants as they travel home after the course. Please pray for the students that they may be able to practice what they have learnt in their various roles and that they may be encouraged to keep serving the Lord despite their challenging living and ministry situations.
