  • Potential new translation projects in the Kivu regions

    Praise the Lord that André and Nicole Aguila (André is the SIL Eastern Congo Group Director), had an encouraging visit to the towns of Goma and Bukavu, located in the North and South Kivu regions of the DRC.  A number of language communities in that area are thirsty for the New Testament in their own languages.  Several have started work on their own and are now approaching SIL and asking for help for the next steps.  Praise the Lord for this new vision and passion for having the Scriptures in their mother tongues.  Pray for God's wisdom for SIL and other organizations to know how to respond to these needs.  Pray for good partnership among the various translation and service organizations in this area.

  • Arabic font for languages in Southwest Asia

    Peter Martin, UK, type designer Non-Roman Script Initiative - In December, the early test version of the Arabic font for languages in Southwest Asia that use complex sloping-style Arabic for writing was released. The test version covers only some of the languages that use Nastaliq style, but the team wanted to get feedback at this stage before going further. The team are revising the font based on the input from a variety of users on the field, and designing more characters for additional minority languages. Please pray for Peter and the team that they will clearly understand the needs of each language group; that they will prioritise wisely among the various projects that they currently work with, so that they can release this font in the next few months; and for the hearts of those who will be able to read Scripture in their heart language using this font.

  • Building relationships with Christian Union leaders

    Josh Oldfield, Scotland, students and church engagement - Thank God for a really exciting first term; Josh is now regularly visiting and speaking at Christian Unions across Scotland, and is in contact with around ten students considering Bible translation work after graduation. Pray for Josh this summer as he takes the Wycliffe stall to a number of student conferences; which involves a lot of travel, but is a great way of raising awareness. Pray also that Josh would be able to build good relationships with new Christian Union leaders and their staff workers.

  • "The Next Step" event

Please pray for the church engagement team seeking to answer two key questions: is Wycliffe a good fit for me? Is now the right time? We praise God that many people are finding their place in God’s mission to the world and that many churches are partnering with Wycliffe UK to make this happen.

  • Increasing awareness of Bible translation

    Maggie Gaved, UK, Church engagement team - As part of the church engagement team, Maggie Gaved has been based in Ipswich since 2014.

Pray too for wisdom as she makes decisions about the format and location of future events nationwide to introduce people to Wycliffe, and as she responds to requests from churches all over the country for speakers.
