In Matthew 4:4, Jesus reiterates the biblical truth that ‘people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord’ – Deuteronomy 8:3 (NLT).
At Wycliffe Australia, we are committed to partnering with the worldwide body of Christ to reach out to anyone who hungers and thirsts for righteousness through the life- giving Word of God. We want to see people from every language group living as disciples of Jesus Christ through the power of Scripture in a language that speaks to their hearts.
The year 2021 was another year of seeing God move in remarkable ways through Bible translation projects – but this time he did it in unexpected ways. When I asked our language teams to report on their activities for 2021, I was amazed at what was achieved in a year when most people worldwide were either locked down or had their movements severely restricted. By inputting the teams’ activity reports into a ‘Word Cloud’ program, we began to see the incredible amount and diversity of the work completed. I am excited about the creative new ways that our members are engaging with minority language groups around the world that need God’s Word.
