God Will Live in Our Hearts

A young man from India, Tarun, came to the United States as part of an exchange program. He had the opportunity to visit the Museum of the Alphabet on the JAARS campus. There, Tarun saw John 3:16 written in his language, Chhattisgarh. “Why is this displayed here?” he asked.

A staff member replied, “This is one of the languages in India that doesn’t have the Word of God.”

A desire to translate the Bible into his own language gripped Tarun.

He returned to India, earned a degree, and helped translate the Bible into Chhattisgarh.

Years later, when a man received his copy of the New Testament, he said, “God has come to Chhattisgarh, since we have the Bible in our language. As we read these words, God will live in our hearts.”

The Museum of the Alphabet on the JAARS campus opens visitors’ eyes to the necessity and need for Bible translation around the world.

Our Museum of the Alphabet and Mexico-Cárdenas Museum take a close look at the heart of our work: language, culture, and Bible translation.
