We recently posted the 2016 Wycliffe year in review video. We are passionate and heart broken for Bibleless peoples. There is a lot to celebrate, however, there is also a lot left to do. Below are numbers for 2016 Bible Translation in Review.
864 total languages in progress
101 first Scripture translations started in 2016. (Africa 27, Asia 31, Eurasia 27, Americas 6 and Pacific 10) 49% of these 101 projects are considered sensitive; the highest percentage in our history.
Left To Do
1,671 languages are still waiting for Bible translation work to begin.
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.” Revelation 7:9 NIV
