We are on the cusp of a new era in Bible translation in The Word for the World. A team of pioneers in South East Asia have been prying open doors to countless Bible-less ethnic groups in the region. Just what does a new pioneering phase entail?
During the pioneer phase, the team becomes aware of the needs in a particular region. While waiting on God for His timing, they prayerfully start investigating the possibilities. After visiting the area – sometimes numerous times – they attempt to find the key people God has been preparing for such a time as this.
Without faith it is impossible to please God*. And this is the heartbeat of initialising new projects. It is a faith venture, the coming together of the belief that God is moving us into a new region combined with God-moments, connecting us with those He has gone ahead and prepared for the team to meet. It is a profound time where sweat, hard work and trusting God come together. The quality of the translations produced by The Word for the World bears testimony to the significance of identifying the right people to work with in a region. Join with us for such a time as this!
