You are teaching them about Bible translation
“I have to make sure no one is coming,” Ben Clary whispers. He peeks out the door, then shuts it. Dressed in a long, flowing shirt and sandals, he strides to the center of the room and teaches the children how God’s Word is coming to the closed/limited countries in the world.
This is just one snapshot of the Passport to Christmas event held every year at JAARS, where children “visit” several countries to learn about their culture and how JAARS supports the work of Bible translation.
This year, children will travel to Indonesia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Thailand as they learn how technology helps Bible translators with their work.
After a recent Passport to Christmas event, one parent remarked, “Our daughter was so excited that she went to work later that day putting together a list of countries to pray for each week.”
The adults also enjoy the event. One guest shared, “This was our first time at the JAARS Center, and we absolutely loved it. I could feel the Holy Spirit through the stories that were shared. I was convicted and must repent for being so lax and not valuing the Word as much as those who have waited almost half their lives to get the Word written in their own tongue.”
Your gifts to CORE Mission Operations enable both children and adults to learn about the needs of our brothers and sisters around the world and how they can help.
