Forgiveness and Hope

IMG_9270

This week I continue my Bible study from Joseph and his family in the book of Genesis 42.

It is about Forgiveness.

Joseph showed no hatred at all but love, mercy and kindness. He even gave back their money so that they would have enough for their journey back to their father’s house.

Our unconfessed sins are not only effected our lives, but also our loved ones. We need to confess all of our sins to receive forgiveness, reconciliation and restoration.

Our God shows us love, mercy and kindness, no matter what we have done. He is waiting for us to come to seek him and reunite with him. He shows us forgiveness. He has provided the way for us to return from our wicked ways, to walk in the truth. He has provided the way and the only way to go to the Father is through Jesus Christ.

Forgiveness to every single person that you know in your life and the 2,9 million people who haven’t heard of Him.

We have heard the Greatest News in Jesus, that he loves every individual so much until he died on the cross for all of our sins, but they haven’t.

We have found the True God and be reconciled, but they haven’t.

They have waited for a long time.

God wants every one in this world to come, receive forgive and new life in Christ Jesus. He is waiting patiently for every person.

God can do it by himself, He is the mighty, powerful God. But He calls us to be part of His salvation plan. He calls us to be part of His mission to bring the Greatest News to 2,9 million people in every language they can understand best in their hearts.

That’s the reason we do what we do. This is your calling and our calling.

Easter Story for Kids

easter2013Today my husband and I were given an opportunity to share about the impact of Bible Translation led to the life changing in Christ with a group of kids at our children church. He found a story, Jesus is Alive, related to Easter and Bible Translation at Wycliffe’s blog post. It is free to download here, included a recipe of empty-tomb rolls for Easter Morning.

The story about a boy named Nard, a Pilipino boy, who came to know Christ and became a missionary pilot.

A translator, Dick, went to his village to share the Good News about Jesus to him and the people in his village in Philippines. When Nard met Dick, he was a boy who could not read or write, he was know as trouble maker. Dick asked for Nard’s help to teach him his language, Isnag. After years of learning and translating, Dick finally finished the book of Mark. And Nard could read and write at that time, too. It was time for Dick to go on furlough and he gave Nard a copy of the translated book of Mark in his language. He told Nard to read it while he was away.

Nard’s life was changed after reading the story of Jesus. His eyes were opened and his heart was touched by the Holy Spirit when he came to understand the meaning of Jesus’ crucifixion  and resurrection.

When the Word of God translated in the language of the people can understand the best in their heart, the power of God’s word will work in their hearts and Holy Spirit will lead them into the salvation. For they can understand complete what God says to them. For they can see the truth clearly. For they can grow in their faith when they keep reading and studying the Word of God in their own language. Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Romans that the power of God’s word can safe anybody who believes (Romans 1:16-17). That is the truth.

Would you join us to bring the gospel to over 290 million people who speak about 1,967 languages in the world through prayer? Would you be partners of Wycliffe to get this big task done?

HAPPY EASTER! 

Jesus came to save and to bring freedom to those who believes in Him.

Love Like Jesus

When I wrote 1 John 3:16-17 today in 3 languages I speak, I am thinking and praying for those 209 million people speak about 1,967 languages, who do not have one single verse in the languages they understand best (source: Wycliffe Global Alliance). There are about 400 languages spoken by at least 190 million people in the country we will be going in South East Asia.
Today we can end the Bible poverty by praying and get involved with the Bible Translation movement around the world by partnering with Wycliffe Bible TranslatorsThe Seed Company and their sister organizations. You can join us in #WritetheWord movement every Wednesday hosting by The Seed Company to raise the awarness of the need of Bible Translations for the Bibleless People Groups in the world.

Your Vital Role

Jesus Brings Freedom ButtonPray is the fuel for any ministries and our lives. Pray is what we’re saying that we need God and it is only can be done by God and His’ power. Pray is the only way to reach His throne and receive His grace in time we need help. Pray is where we stand in the gap for those who are in needs of God and His love.

Through pray we come to God and plead for our loved ones. But also…

We are called to pray for others who have not heard nor known about Jesus Christ. We pray is to reach out the over 209 million people in this world to come to know God, for God to open doors for them to have His word in the languages (over 1,900 languages!) that they can understand best in their hearts, for God to touch them and change their hearts, for God to lead them in the way of truth and life.

You have a vital role in God’s mission in this world. You can pray today.

The Seed Company, a Wycliffe Bible Translators affiliates, have released 40-days Devotional e-Book, that you can get it for FREE here. During this Lent, you can read God’s word, meditate and pray for Jesus to bring freedom to over 209 million people who speak about 1,967 languages. They have been waiting too long!

Would you join us to pray today?

Merry Christmas from Wycliffe

A powerful message on Christmas from Wycliffe and stories from those who celebrated in different countries.

What a joy and a privilege to be involved in bringing God’s translated Word to those who don’t yet have it! As you meditate on the significance of the birth of Jesus, remember those for whom Jesus remains a foreigner because they’ve never heard the good news in the language they understand best. Your partnership in the work of Bible translation brings them closer to the God who loves them, providing access to the hope and salvation offered in God’s Word.

1,967 Languages More To Go

In 2012 Wycliffe reaches the milestone in Bible Transations! There are about 2,075 Scripture translations are in progress and only 1,967 languages that still need Bible Translation projects started by 2025! Find out the story and the latest statistic here.

“This is really a God thing because we couldn’t do it on our own. These figures represent the work of many other agencies as well as the Church worldwide,” Wyclyffe Bible Translators COO Russ Hersman told CBN News (Click here to read about it).

There’s nothing impossible for our mighty God!

Bringing God’s Word to The Vidunda People

A year ago Lara Williams and Katie Orr launched Savoring Living Water and soon after set a goal to fund 104 verse for the Vidunda people, through OneVerse.
They are about 16 verses away ($410) from their goal, and they are praying they can meet it all in one day, TODAY!
Here are the details:
We all have the Bible in our hands in various English versions and even on our smart phones. We have access to the Word of the Living God at any time we can and anywhere we go. Please pray for the Vidunda people, who are waiting for the Word of God available in their heart language. And you can be part of God’s amazing plan, to bring the Word of God to these people. They have waited too long!
Thank you and Be blessed!
