There are three types or groups of people we like to expose ScritpureEarth.org to.
1. Individuals who want to reach out to non-native English speakers.
2. Individuals who are non-native English speakers.
3. Organisations who want to reach out to non-native English speakers.
The method of doing it is about the same. The first 30 seconds is spent helping them realize we are not trying to sell them anything. The next minute and a half are spent telling and showing them what it is. (Yes, it is that easy) The next three minutes we watch their eyes grow large as they really start to comprehend (either) (A) just how big and powerful this website is. (or) (B) they are shocked that someone has taken the time to learn and write down their heart language.
If it’s (A) just how big and powerful this website is. Then the following minutes are spent “Greenlighting”. First, they are realizing all the different ways they can start using this site to get people connected to the Bible. Then they transition to telling us we need to go and connect with, this person, that person, this organization and that church/pastor. It’s an idea frenzy taking place, words are flowing fast. We are feverishly writing down all their suggested contact ideas and their contact information. Then after X-amount of time, we are all depleted, happy and content. Something special just happened and they know they are a part of something very BIG coming down the road!
If it’s (B) they are shocked that someone has taken the time to learn and write down their heart language. Then as they look at our smartphone and see the Bible or New Testament are really in their language, that there is the Bible in audio. Then they see the “Jesus film” video, and study aids and at time volumes of information in their heart language. They are visibly excited about this new gold mine they have just discovered. They want the business card we have that has the web address. Then they want several more to give to friends and family. At times they have many more questions at times they are at work and must get back to it.
If it’s (3) an organization, church/pastor. They normally go with the (A) just how big and powerful this website is. We don’t have a lot of experience with this category yet. In fact, only three so far. But, three positive events. All three gave us an invite to come back and share more.
Please keep this new ministry in your prayers. That God will use it in a powerful way to bring people to Himself. Please pray that the funding for our Wycliffe ministry budget will come in quickly. God has specific individuals and churches He wants on our team. Maybe you are one of them. Ask God, then walk boldly in what He tells you to do.
