Share the Word!

A neat opportunity from Wycliffe:

Dear Friend, In the midst of the heartbreak and human suffering that plagues Africa, God is doing something marvelous ... The Church is alive-and growing!

Now, millions of new Christians need Scripture in their mother tongue

Help us quench their thirst for God's Word. Wycliffe is translating Scripture for 69 African language communities still waiting for the Word of God in the mother tongue of their people.

To thank you for your interest, I want you to have a unique screen saver of inspirational Bible verses and exclusive artwork representing the power of His Word. Get this spiritually uplifting gift-free.

We may take for granted what millions of new Christians yearn for.

We can read and understand the Bible. But more than 41 million people in Africa still do not have God's Word in their own language.

Our passion is to make the Bible accessible to people in the language they know best. Since its founding in 1942, Wycliffe has helped complete 721 Scripture translations-providing God's Word to more than 80 million people. Literacy programs including HIV/AIDS workshops are a vital part of the work.

Help us speed the work of the Word of God for Africa Project and provide Scripture in languages that speak to the heart of new Christians.

Hope comes to Africa through what you do. Please give as generously as you can today. Thank you! Warmly in Christ, Bob Creson President P.S. Please remember the Word of God for Africa Project in your prayers and consider forwarding this message to a prayer partner. God bless you.

Your gift will have twice the impact on work to speed Scripture to new Christians.

A Matching Grant up to $50,000 has been offered by a ministry friend to translate Scripture in Africa.

Helping now will accomplish twice as much because your generous gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
