www.ScriptureEarth.org This website was developed by SIL Translator, Bill Dyck who’s office is now at the JAARS Center. He is assisted by Frank Doejaaren and Mary Mclendon also at JAARS and by Loren Hawthorn and Scott Starker from the Mexico Branch. (Plus a cast of many more) There are currently 2300+ languages on the site with more being added as they become available. Its an extremely simple site to use. Its FREE, there is nothing to download, subscribe to or register. Simply open the website, then you will see most of the countries of the world, click on the country you want, all the languages spoken are listed, then click on the exact language and up comes all the Bible portions, study aids, bible audio, video available in that language.
Judy and I now have a Wycliffe assignment to make this website know in North America. We are starting at JAARS, then heading down to Wycliffe Bible Translators in Orlando, FL. We will be contacting, churches, outreach pastors, refugee aid and resettlement organizations. Schools, colleges, Universities, any place International students might be. Mission organizations, field training organizations, anyone who might be going overseas. Currently, we are on Partnership Discovery through the midwest, southeast, gulf coast through mid-California. We need to get our new ministry budge up to 100% before we can officially begin this new job. Click here to see how you can help.
Now is the time for getting this website information distributed. We, the ones reading this blog are the ones to help make it happen. Ask me and I’ll mail you some cards with the Scripture Earth web address and you can pass them out to church outreach leaders, local refuge aid organizations, friends, neighbors and everyone who is not a native English speaker. To give someone access to the scripture in their heart language is the end result of everything we in Wycliffe, JAARS, SIL and the Church have been working for these past decades. It’s like giving a glass of cold water to a stranger in need on a hot day.
