You can help protect necessary equipment

Surges of electricity from an usually fierce storm damaged thousands of dollars of equipment at the Bible translation center in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

The SIL GTIS team at JAARS sent Karl Crossman and Dan Boone to install a preventative system at the center—a service made possible by people like you who give to JAARS Technology Solutions.

When they arrived, the center was hopping with translation workshops. According to Corey Wenger, another member of the team at JAARS: If the server or an air conditioner goes down, then [all the] translation, literacy, Scripture engagement projects just come to a screeching halt. It was of utmost importance to protect the equipment from future electrical surges.

After Dan and Karl tested and measured the existing grounding installation, they installed surge protectors and power transformers across the center.

But the work is far from being done! The team left a long list of items to do, and you can help complete it.
