Pictures from Wycliffe

Each gumball in this display represents one person who has committed to pray for a bibleless people group.

In the jars on the shelf are crayons, each crayon represents one language in the world, there are 6,912. Wycliffe's goal is to have bible translation started in every language by 2025.

The last section of the Wordspring Discovery Center is about getting involved personally in the process either by praying, giving financially, or actually going on a missions trip. I thought it made sense to take a picture of the newest member of the team.

This is the view of Lake Tyndale behind the Wycliffe Center. It is a spring-fed lake and does eventually lead to the ocean. Bob can enjoy eating his lunch out here every day. Soon after we move down in November there will be a fundraising walk around the lake to help finance the 2025 goal. It will take $100 million a year to reach the goal.

We are excited to be joining an organization that is fundamentally necessary in the Great Commission. How can christians grow or learn without being able to understand for themselves the Word of God.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" -Romans 10:14-15
