A reason to Celebrate

Working with Wycliffe is a joy as we desire that all people will have access to Scripture in a language they understand best. With this being the Christmas Season, I’m excited about how many more people are able to read about Christ’s birth for the first time and truly understand it!

Wycliffe Global Alliance just released new statistics for 2012 that show the number of language groups still waiting for access to Scripture has dropped below 2,000 for the first time. Exciting! Being the curious one I am, I also looked up statistics from 2005 (when I first joined Wycliffe) to see how many languages had dropped off the list. Guess how many? Five hundred and sixty-two languages, which is around 63 million people (estimating)! How cool to be a part of that. BUT…..

Languages still needing Scripture

….there are still many people who are waiting to hear “The Christmas Story” of hope and salvation – estimates say around 209 million people. Would you be a part of making a difference for eternity? Here are two (tax-deductible) ideas:

1) A very immediate way is to give through Wycliffe’s Christmas Catalogue. Maybe that can be your family’s gift to Jesus this year! There are gifts of audio Scriptures, videos, accelerating Bible Translation…

2) A longer term investment is to be a regular part of my partnership team. To continue serving with Wycliffe and sending many “laborers to the fields white for harvest” (my current role), I need a team of people who commit to give financially as well as to pray. Would you consider being a part? Check out the Partnering Together page above.

About Traveling Mosaic

I'm on a journey in this world, hence the "Traveling" part of the name. My life is also made up of pieces that, when the Master completes it, will be a beautiful Masterpiece, hence "Mosaic."
