Did you know that there are over 6,900 spoken languages in our world, but only 657 language groups have access to the entire Bible in the language they best understand? Many groups of people don't even have an established alphabet.
Founded in 1942, Wycliffe is non-profit organization that holds the belief that every man, woman, and child should be able to read God’s Word in their own language.
Simply put, Wycliffe teams (along with native speakers) help establish literacy, education, and ultimately a translation of the Bible.
The benefits of translation and literacy for these minority language groups are many. They include better health as a result of access to medical information, economic growth due to the acquisition of marketable skills, and the preservation of culture thanks to a written history. Most importantly, Bible translation brings people closer to God Himself—the One who transforms hearts.
Today, we had an opportunity to tour the Wycliffe USA headquarters & WordSpring Discovery Center to learn more about about the organization.
