This breaks my heart...

During her final presentation at Equip, N* allowed the pages of the tumbler to fall to the floor as she read to us some of the names of the nearly 1900 people groups that are still without a single verse of Scripture in the language they best understand. “This breaks my heart,” she said. She was unable to continue for a moment as the reality of her words struck her deeply.

I was once again reminded why I am here - why God has called me to be a part of Wycliffe Bible Translators. There are people dying every day without access to God’s Word in the language they first learned to speak as a child… the one in which they think and dream and pray. You are an essential part of God’s solution to the injustice of Bible poverty. Your prayers and your gifts toward my Wycliffe ministry make it possible for me to also be a part of the solution. Thank you!
