Sustainability builds through Infrastructure

Investment in local partners and their physical infrastructure is crucial if a language community is to carry out the vital efforts of translation and literacy. These are more than buildings. They are mission outposts from which qualified and trained church leaders, evangelists, teachers, and leaders can be deployed. These local people, prepared for the task, can share God’s Word in their heart languages and deepen engagement with Scripture for the church and community.

Development and improvement of infrastructure in Southeast Asia, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, and Tanzania over the next several years will strengthen Bible translation and Gospel proclamation.

Equip Local Leaders for Longevity

We believe that every community should have the chance to read the Bible in the language they know best, led by people they trust and respect. Your financial gifts and prayers equip leaders worldwide with infrastructure support, building capacity for language communities to drive translation forward and deepen Scripture engagement.

Program Goals

  1. Provide secure premises where partners can meet, learn, and create Bible-based materials.
