  • Fundraising for Bible translation in Kenya

    Bible Translation and Literacy, the Wycliffe organisation in Kenya has for many years been engaging the Kenyan Church to raise money for Bible Translation. The response has improved over the years. This year, they have embarked on a project to raise money through the sale of used newspapers. They have therefore put out a campaign asking supporters and Kenyans in general to bring in their old newspapers. Pray that people will respond to this request so that the campaign can succeed.

  • Studying women of the Bible

    In September and October, women of the Caquinte language community in Peru, used material entitled Women of the Bible to study Scripture. Led by Bible translator Joy Swift, most of the women of the village Tsoroja and the surrounding area came to the classes. Hearts seemed to be open and responsive. Pray that the women will apply the truths they learned from His Word, and that whole families will choose to obey the Lord. Thank the Lord for the husbands who responded, have asked God for forgiveness of their sins and desire to follow Him.

Some are in the stages of application for the course and raising finances for their tuition and living expenses. Pray that God will provide and encourage their hearts in Him.

  • Faith comes by hearing

    The recording of the Akawaio New Testament is in process. The goal is to make the translated Scripture available in audio format on the Proclaimer and distribute it to the speakers of this language in Guyana. After many challenges, including illness and difficulty finding readers, the process is in the final stages. Some lines in the script spoken by Jesus still need to be recorded. Pray for Rex, the man who is reading the words of Jesus. Pray that he will remain healthy, and read smoothly and without error, so that all the Akawaio people may soon hear God’s Word in their language and respond to Him.

Ask God for economic provision, physical strength for the labor, and good teamwork. Pray that all activities in this place may serve to advance the Kingdom of God among language communities that do not have the Bible.
