Celebrate Bible Translation – Ballarat, Victoria

5 July 2024

Join us in Ballarat for a celebration of the progress of Bible translation around the world

There are still over 1.5 billion people in the world, speaking 6658 languages, who do not have a full Bible in the language they know best. The need for Scripture translation is too great for western missionaries to complete the task in this lifetime, but God has been working to equip Christian speakers of these languages to translate the Scriptures into their own mother tongues, and even to prepare some of them to be translation consultants. The focus of this evening will be on the progress in recent years in the training and equipping of local translators and consultants.
