The Bible is for everyone and its power affects whole communities. You can reach people who won’t otherwise hear God’s word by supporting translation projects that have carried on during lockdown.

There are Christians in Africa faithfully waiting for a Bible they can understand. And there are members of their communities yet to discover God’s word because it’s not available in their language. These are impoverished and marginalised people, often living in terrorist-threatened regions, but you can bring them the unique joy of the Bible.
Last September, people in southern Nigeria who speak the Epie language received the New Testament for the first time. There were joyous celebrations in the town of Yenagoa as the Bible arrived in their community, and people were excited about the impact it could have. Your support for Bible mission brings hope like this in the most difficult times.
‘I am the happiest person,’ said Iwo Samson Famous, a church elder, holding his first copy of the Bible in his own language.
This is an opportunity for you to bring that kind of joy to people across the Sahel region of Africa. Six language groups without access to the Bible could soon be introduced to God’s word with your help. It costs around £6 for our local teams to translate a verse of Scripture.
You could bring God’s promises to people who have never heard them before.
