My, oh, my. How time flies when you’re having fun getting God’s Word to the whole world. It’s been yet another month since we last announced the newest Scripture recordings and you know what that means . . . more new Scripture recordings!
We are excited and honored to be able to tell you that 7 more people groups now have the Good News in their heart language! Combined, there are over 350,000 people who speak these languages. The people groups represented this month range in size from 218,000 to only 2,300.
Please join us in praying for these precious children of the Most High – that those who don’t already know Him will come to know Jesus as their personal Savior and experience the transformational power that only He offers.
Here they are; let’s lift them up by name:
- Aralle-Tabulahan – Indonesia (12,000 speakers)
- Banna – Ethiopia (42,800 speakers)
- Chachi – Ecuador (9,500 speakers)
- Colorado – Ecuador (2,300 speakers)
- Kankanaey – Philippines (218,000 speakers)
- Kuna Border – Panama (2,900 speakers)
You may have noticed that only six of the seven people groups are mentioned here. As we’ve shared with you before, this is unfortunately a sad fact of the world we live in and potential persecution keeps us from mentioning the other people group. We have those who will do anything to stop the spread of the Gospel by persecuting others for their beliefs or even, at times, for just having the Word of God. We must help protect these persecuted children of God by not bringing attention to them here in this blog; however, please know that His Word will not be silenced. It will be heard by this people group and all His children will proclaim it from the mountain tops so that the entire world will know God’s truth.
As always, we want to also take a moment to recognize our amazing translation partners. Their years of work and dedication make our work possible. This month’s Great Commission partners are: Indonesian Bible Society, SIM (in cooperation with Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church), The Bible League, and Wycliffe Bible Translators. These partnerships are a beautiful picture of the Body of Christ working together for the Kingdom!
Be sure to look out for and stay up-to-date with our blog posts so you don’t miss our newest releases next month in September. Until all have heard!!
