Remember the hymns you sang as a child? Or the songs you sang in Sunday school or youth worship? What about the Bible studies, books, sermons … even radio broadcasts … that have answered your questions, given you comfort, and affirmed your faith? Where would your heart be without them?
The Yansi people of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been praying for 50 years that God’s Word would be translated into their heart language. And now that work has begun! But they are among 600 million people worldwide who still have less than a full New Testament in their own language. God is at work, though—and you can be a part of it right now!
Right now, we’re gearing up to provide a range of new operational solutions (think: transportation and communications) for multiple overseas translation partners. That requires on-the-ground R&D overseas as well as significant planning here in the US. The end result, as God provides, will be sustainable solutions and mission partners who are able to work hand-in-hand with the people groups still waiting on the gospel.
The JAARS Center is a global hub for several very specialized forms of training: pre-field (and recurring) mountain aviation orientation for pilots and mechanics heading overseas; cultural and spiritual development for mission staff with cross-cultural assignments; heart-language media dubbing and production for trainers and staff who create audio/visual tools for translation and Scripture engagement; and more. All depend upon the people, facilities, and technology infrastructure of the JAARS Center to continue.
Every piece of equipment we send overseas, every person we train and deploy, and every program we manage with or for an overseas mission partner is a responsibility for stewardship of Kingdom resources that we take very seriously. So we invest in due diligence, in planning, in effective deployment and ongoing monitoring—knowing that our Master expects wisdom, courage, and an eternal return measured in lives transformed by the gospel.

Translation partners around the world are asking us to solve the logistical problems that slow or prevent their work. To do that, we need more capacity now—and you can help make that possible. We invite you to join our Campaign for Possible with a gift today!
