The International Project Funding Meeting has recently met in Dallas, Texas, 10-12 August 2010.
Each year representatives of the various Wycliffe Bible Translators country organisations meet together. They consider the project funds they anticipate coming from supporters, and to which projects they can be allocated.
The fiscal need increases yearly partly because more and more national workers become involved in Bible translation and related language programme tasks such as literacy, survey and other roles. These colleagues often do not have the same network of family, friends and churches able to support them as ex-pat colleagues do.
This year 1,000 projects were considered! About 80% of the fiscal need may be met during the next 12 months, depending on the generosity of our supporters. Praise the Lord!
The funding received by Wycliffe Bible Translators keeps the momentum going, as more and more communities worldwide are receiving God’s word in their own language. But there is still much to do. You can help make the translated word available to everyone! Give the Story.
