Click here for today’s feature (part 5 of 5):

All week we’ve been learning about the latest innovations in translating the scriptures into the heart languages of the world.  Yesterday we got a glimpse into the dynamic impact Wycliffe’s translation work is having in communities facing health and literacy challenges.

This last part in my series on Bible translation is a look at how partnerships with the local church are not only accelerating the process, but also uniting the body of Christ.

Guests featured in today’s piece:

  1. Liz Thomson – Comprehensive Project Manager of Scripture for All, Uganda-Tanzania Branch
  2. Lukasi Manumbu – Bishop of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God in the Mara Region, Tanzania
  3. Tim Gilmore – Mara Cluster Team Leader for the Uganda-Tanzania Branch
  4. Hilkiah Deya – Anglican Bishop in the Mara Diocese, Tanzania
  5. Daniel Ouma – Bishop of the New Life Gospel Community Church, Mara Region, Tanzania
  6. Danny Foster – Training Coordinator for the Uganda-Tanzania Brach
  7. Bob Creson – President of Wycliffe, USA
  8. Johnny Walker –Linguist, Uganda-Tanzania Branch
