Words for Life – The Wycliffe Magazine

(Spring 2017)

Words for Life cover The Bible is infused with the energy of stories. Its pages contain stories of every kind: stories of faith, stories of betrayal, stories of wrestling with God, stories of shepherds becoming kings, stories of wars won and lost, stories of imprisonment, stories of lives that change completely through an encounter with God, stories of faith, stories of hope and, above all, stories of love.

Collectively the stories in the Bible tell the big story of God’s faithful searching after us and they climax in the story of the Son of God coming to earth to live, suffer, die and rise again in order to save us – which has been described as: ‘the story beyond all stories’.

In this issue of Words for Life we hear stories about how God is calling people to work in Bible translation around the world. In particular we find out about the wonderful way God is guiding and inspiring one student on her ‘Wycliffe journey’.

I hope that you find these stories inspiring and thought-provoking – and that they lead you to be part of the work of Bible translation through praying, giving, or going.
