“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me.’ 
Matthew 25:40 (NIV)

There are many language groups that identify as Christian and yet they have no Scripture in their language. Thank you for standing in the gap for your brothers and sisters who don’t have ‘every word that comes from the mouth of God’ (Mt. 4:4).

In Him,

23. The Weemol bush youth camp starts this weekend. Pray with Rachel Borneman that indigenous young people are encouraged and equipped to follow Jesus.

24. Weemol bush youth camp: Pray that leaders will be greatly encouraged by how God works. Pray for protection and for transformed lives.

25. Thank God for Christian indigenous leaders. Thank God for those who are called to Bible translation and pray that they will be well equipped, fruitful and sustained by the joy of the Holy Spirit.

26. SIL Australia: Pray for those attending the Language and Identity Journey Seminar at SILA’s campus, which will run from today to 1 October.

27. Lemande, Cameroon: The Lemande NT was recently translated, but low literacy prevents the people from accessing their Bible. Pray for God’s solution. Pray that they will hide God’s Word in their hearts. (Ps 119:11)

28. Chad: Many Wycliffe Australia members have served in Chad over the years. Please join us in praying for a new human resources coordinator for SIL Chad. This is a pressing need.

29. The ‘least of these’: Tomoip speakers of East New Britain number about 2000. They do not have God’s Word in their language, even though nine out of ten identify as Christian. God’s Spirit grieves that his people are missing out on ‘every word that comes from the mouth of God’ (Mt. 4:4). Ask for workers to help translate God’s Word.

30. The ‘least of these’: Very few Tomoip people can read and write. Pray for an improvement in education opportunities and that they will gain access to God’s Word in an audio format. Pray that they take God’s Word to heart.

I prayed

Thanks for your patience...

Waiting is hard, isn't it. But imagine waiting 2000 years for Scripture in your language! Thanks for your patience. And thanks for your generous support which will help bring the long wait to an end...
