Their staff who will work overseas with diverse teams of colleagues in countries with unfamiliar cultures need spiritual, emotional, and practical preparation for the challenges they will face. Their pilots and aircraft mechanics need specialized skills to operate safely in remote and difficult places.
Their regional translation centers need skilled, well-trained IT specialists to keep their Internet, network, and other systems running smoothly—and solve technical problems when they occur.
Mother-tongue translators who receive expensive tools like motorbikes, 4WD vehicles, boats, and computers need to learn how to operate and maintain them safely and effectively.
Translators and language workers whose projects require water transportation may face travel via an overcrowded, ill-equipped local water craft. For them, reliable water safety gear and training in how to use it is essential.
We provide training in how to use water safety gear and personal watercraft, conducted at both the JAARS Center and in many overseas locations. We can also provide training for passenger vessels that serve multiple projects regionally, and training in the operation of specific vessels for captains, crew, and mechanics.
Our 4WD and motorbike training covers both basic and advanced driving skills and routine maintenance. Training is available at the JAARS Center as well as overseas upon vehicle delivery … whatever it takes to provide solutions that are both locally appropriate and sustainable.
Ultimately, everyone who takes advantage of our training solutions shares our goal: that one day the millions of people still eagerly waiting to hear and understand God’s Word in the language they know best will experience the life-transforming power of the gospel.
With 70 years of experience in the field of Bible translation support, JAARS is uniquely equipped to provide a wide range of proven training. We invite you to come alongside us—in prayer, with advocacy, and as “gospel patrons” who can help fund this eternal work.
