Join us in Gympie for the Celebration of Bible Translation dinner, celebrating the progression of Bible translation in Indonesia and South Asia.
(N.B. There area similar events in Brisbane and in Bendigo, Victoria. Click the city name for details.)
There are still 1.5 billion people in the world, speaking 6664 languages, who do not have a full Bible in their first language. 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.
There will also be an opportunity to hear illustrated live reports of the recent Wycliffe Australia study tour to Israel (‘K2K’) from those who were there.
Date: Friday 28 July 2023
