By Jo Johnson, Sineina Gela, Ann Kuy, Nancy Duncan, and Zac Manyim with Gwendolyn Davies and Jim Killam | Holding the rope is a visual symbol of unity and togetherness in prayer. As prayer leaders in the Bible translation movement, we have learned that when we stay within the confines of our own cultures in prayer, we are the poorer for it. Each culture provides unique reflections of God through distinctive approaches to prayer. And when we don’t embrace this, there are things that we don’t learn.
By Paul Kimbi and Sarah Starrenburg | Scripture translation is experiencing unprecedented progress as a result of a determined commitment to collaboration. This core value of Bible translation work is demonstrated in local projects all the way up to global strategy.
Information is powerful. We’ve all experienced moments where the discovery of a particular piece of information has radically shifted the direction of our lives. Many of us in the mission community had our lives transformed when we discovered the theme of God’s global mission that runs from Genesis to Revelation. The realization that God has always been a missionary God continues to challenge countless Christians to consider the direction and purpose of their lives. Or maybe it was the discovery of the unreached, that millions of souls lived beyond the reach of the local church and had little to no access to the gospel that was the watershed moment in your life. State of the World talks that educate and inspire Christians are a regular feature of mission conferences. Thankfully, God has raised up hard-working men and women who dedicate themselves to helping transform Christian worldviews through powerful and up-to-date information.
