EQUIP week 2

Today is hump day of our second week of training.  We are almost done and just beginning at the same time.  The training has been jam packed with all the things we will need to know to be successful in our first assignment with Wycliffe, Partnership Development.  We are assigned to build a team of partners that want to serve the needs of the bibleless people in Nigeria by sending us in person.  We are looking for financial partners to give regularly, and prayer partners that will help protect us from the fiery darts the enemy is throwing at us.
One of the interesting things that we heard was the idea that during this process we are missionaries to the local church, sharing the needs of the bibleless and the exciting work of Wycliffe to give the Bible to those who have no access to it now. We are excited to share the things that Wycliffe is doing around the world and stories of how literacy and Bible Translation is changing lives.

Did you know:
-There are around 7,000 languages spoken around the world
-around 2,000 of those languages have no known scripture in their language, and most of them do not have a written language 
-The Ethnologue, An encyclopedic reference work cataloging all of the world’s 6,909 known living languages uses information collected by mission agencies like Wycliffe Bible Translators.
-Nigeria, where we are headed has been identified by Wycliffe as being one of the top 3 countries still in need of Bible Translation, the other two are Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
