340 million people are waiting for a translation of the Bible in their native tongue.
Last week, Lara and I announced our crazy, big goal and partnership with OneVerse. They’ve been working hard to get a OneVerse group set up for us. This group will allow us to track our giving through Savoring Living Water book sales. The Savoring Living Water OneVerse group is also a place where anyone can give directly toward this project.
Through this group, all gifts will be used to fund the translation of the Bible for the Vidunda people, in Tanzania, Africa!
Because they’ve been hearing Scripture in a language foreign to them, most Vidunda people have little idea what it actually teaches.
The majority of Vidunda speakers still live in fear of spirits rather than experiencing the redemption and freedom they could know in Christ. Non-Christians can’t see much victory or joy in the lives of believers. The Scriptures in their mother tongue will offer believers tools for deliverance from the bondage of fear. It will also support personal spiritual growth and provide a solid foundation from which to reach out to others.
We are thrilled to get in on this project while it is still early, and can’t wait to see how God is going to use this partnership!
Would you take a moment today to check out the Vidunda people, and pray about giving a verse or two?
