Help National Bible Translators Keep Working!

The coronavirus has crippled the world, creating a medical and economic disaster. National Bible translators, trapped by government-ordered lockdowns, could not travel to translation workshops to obtain the tools and training for translating God’s Word into the heart languages of their people.

Closed borders, heightened surveillance, and increased persecution of Christians—all threaten the work of Bible translators. But Christians who have waited for generations for God’s Word in their own heart language refuse to be denied.

Bible translators from hundreds of language groups are determined to continue their work under lockdown conditions, and they are asking for tools that will enable them to work virtually from a safe location!

God has made a way. If we can equip translators with V-MAST technology—virtual tools—they can work remotely. Computer tablets, software, an uplink for accessing an entire library of translation tools—this system means:

  • National Bible translators can keep working, collaborating online to ensure accuracy, even if they can’t meet together in person.
  • On a private digital network, they can work safely, even secretly, in areas of intense anti-Christian persecution.
  • Translated Scriptures are backed up and stored in the cloud so no enemy can confiscate or destroy the work.

You can give one national translator a tablet, including all the translation resources they need to begin, for just $300.

Perhaps you’ll even feel led to give a major gift of $7,800 to provide an entire workshop of national Bible translators with tablets.

Requests for tablets are pouring in. We need to provide 1,000 tablets . . . and without them, many of these people groups may be at risk to wait even longer to receive God's Word.

God is at work. V-MAST is a breakthrough. We don’t have to wait for hostile regimes to turn friendly or a pandemic to pass. Translation can happen right now.

Thank you for giving generously now to help national Bible translators share God’s Word with their own people in the language of their heart. God bless you!
