WHO WE SUPPORT!
A man's harvest in life depends entirely on what he sows...
What we do for others are the seeds we are sowing that will produce a harvest in our own lives.
All of the good things we do for others are seeds we are planting that will eventually spring up in
our own lives.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be
compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It's not enough to have lived.
We should be determined to live for something.
May I suggest that it be creating joy for others,
sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind,
bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”
― Leo F. Buscaglia
THE SEED COMPANY
We're on a mission to see all languages have Scripture by 2025.
Over a billion people worldwide don’t have the full Bible in the language they know best. Nearly 1,700 languages don’t have any
Scripture at all. In our lifetime, the Bible will become available to all for church planting, evangelism and discipleship efforts led by the
local Church. We’re on a mission to get the whole Bible translated into every language in this generation. Every $35 you give helps
translate one verse of Scripture.
For more than 70 years, Wycliffe has helped people around the world translate the Bible into their own
languages. We also help with language development, literacy and other spiritual and physical needs.
We Partner with a Wycliffe Missionary
Christopher & Elizabeth Tachick
The Tachicks are assisting Bible translators in Nigeria, and Chris is honored to serve them as a translation consultant-in-training. These Nigerian teams and language communities do not yet have the Bible, and they are eager to access the Bible in the language they know best. There is an exciting Bible translation movement underway in Nigeria!
In their previous assignment, the Tachicks assisted teams in both Old and New Testament translation, but they are currently focusing their ministry efforts on the Old Testament. Chris travels back-and-forth to Nigeria, consulting a team and checking their draft so that they can move towards publishing the whole Bible. Chris and Elizabeth praise the Lord to see how motivated the translators are to bless their language community, to complete the Old Testament translation and to do it well. The current bottleneck rests largely with Chris, since the team has already drafted almost the entire Old Testament and prepared it for him to consultant check!
Chris and Elizabeth are short on their monthly ministry budget. They are seeking to add to their team of faithful prayer and financial partners who will share in this work of Bible translation with them. Please consider participating in what God is doing through Bible translation by investing in their Wycliffe ministry.
Pray with them that the word of the Lord would run and be glorified (2 Thess 3:1).
Note: Wycliffe Ministry Budget
Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their
geographic location of service. Giving to this account directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.
This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs.
The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
