WYCLIFFE MISSIONS IS OUR HIGHLIGHTED MISSIONS THIS MONTH
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will ot walk in darkness, but will have the light of life". - John 8-12
Peru is the third largest country in South America and features widely diverse climates, languages and people. In part due to immigration over the past 100 years, people with cultural backgrounds from all over the world call Peru home.
The Huaylas Quechua language dates back to the Inca Empire and is connected to Peru's ancient history. Praise God that over 300,000 Huaylas Quechua speakers now have the complete Bible available to them in their language!
THE TRANSLATOR'S WORK IS TRANSFORMING THEIR COMMUNITIES
It takes immense dedication to translate God's Word in a way that will speak clearly and easily to a language community. But throughout the Huaylas Quechua Bible translation process, God transformed the lives of local translators and revealed his love and power to them through Scripture. Now the translator's work is transforming their communities too!
At the dedication for the Huaylas Quechua Bible on August 10, 2019, a woman eagerly purchased her copy. She started to open the Bible, but paused to pray. She prayed and wept over the Bible for five minutes before opening it - preparing to receive God's Word in a language that speaks to her heart.
PRAISE THE LORD for the completion of the Huaylas Quechua Bible!
