Your gifts enable God’s Word to spread in Africa
During the eight-month rainy season in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Africa, the dirt roads become mud pits. Sometimes cars—even 4WD vehicles—drive down into these pits and can’t get out.
This challenging environment makes it hard for Bible translation teams to make the necessary frequent trips to test their Scripture translations, attend literacy trainings, and visit churches to promote their work. Bible translators often have to walk to villages, some as far as 20 miles away. They arrive exhausted.
But people like you giving to JAARS Land Transportation Solutions, enabled us to offer the teams in this part of the DRC a better alternative. JAARS provided seven Bible translation teams with motorbikes—one per team—so they could more easily and quickly reach the villages where the heart of their work occurs.
Scripture can’t come soon enough to the Bali people. They are so thirsty for the Word of God in their language that the churches aren’t waiting for the entire New Testament to be translated before giving it to their congregations! Now, thanks to you, they’ll be able to receive it more quickly.
