The Word For The World (TWFTW)

TWFTW has published 2 full Bibles and 26 New Testaments and currently has a further 81 New Testaments in progress, impacting 36 million people giving them access to God’s Word in their own language for the first time. Since 1981, 1128 people from 26 nations have participated in the Diploma in Bible Translation (DBT) training programme. At present 354 students are enrolled on the DBT course from 13 countries representing 140 languages with a definite Bible translation need.

Barry Funnell has had four consultation trips to South East Asia this year and has mentored four national consultants to the point where they are now working independently. This is very necessary as it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain visas. Please pray for these four consultants to grow in their skill and competence as the work in South East Asia continues to expand. They will soon be adding to their current 58 projects there.

Praise God for the growth of TWFTW, for all the leaders, the current 314 translators, and the prayer and financial partners who make the work possible. Pray for the European leaders conference from 28th September to 1st October in Germany when 18 representatives from Germany, Slovakia, UK, Poland and Finland meet to plan, pray and strategise for the growing tranlsation ministry.
