God’s Message Made Meaningful

raGod is using Bible translation so that more and more people are hearing His words for the very first time in a language that really speaks to them.

“Before its translation into Tz’utujil, God’s word for us was like a lake far away – we had no idea what lay beneath the surface. But now that we have the New Testament in our mother tongue, we can explore its depths!” – A Tz’utujil speaker, Guatemala

God has spoken and has told us amazing things. In the Bible, He has told us where we come from, who He is, and how He has made a way for us to be with Him forever.

But if the Bible isn’t available, isn’t readable, isn’t in your language, that message is meaningless. It’s the reality for more than 300 million people who don’t have even one verse of God’s word available in their language.
