Leading Towards the Broader World of Bible Translation
“The New [administrative] structure will help the work of Bible translation to be more efficient and effective.” (Dr. Jim Kaiser, Lutheran Bible Translators consultant)
Lutheran Bible Translators executive director, Dr. Mike Rodewald, shared about the world of Bible translation outside of Ethiopia. He helped participants to see how their work is a part of a much broader picture. Much time was devoted to hearing from those representing the projects. The participants shared good things happening in their work and talked about the struggles they face. The teams from language communities where most of the people are Muslim had the greatest challenges. Small groups discussed the issues and possible solutions, such as how to meaningfully involve their language communities in the translation project. This was the first time many of the participants heard about the broader world of Bible translation outside of their own project. They were encouraged to learn what is happening in other places and challenged to pray for their fellow translators. There were many requests for this meeting to be held annually so that they could continue to learn from each other and encourage each other.
