|About||Kurt, Johanna, Kassia, Lukas and Matthias | Serving with Wycliffe/JAARS (Partners in Bible Translation) in Ukarumpa, Papua New Guinea through Computer Services and Elementary Education so that the ends of the earth will know Him!|
By 2025, together with partners worldwide, we envision Bible translation in progress for every language that needs it.
Wycliffe Bible Translators, working in partnership with language communities and local organizations, is involved in active Bible translation programs in more than 1,500 languages, potentially impacting 2.6 billion people. We rejoice in the progress being made, but greater acceleration is needed to provide God's life-changing Word for every language group. They've waited long enough! Vision 2025 is a bold call to action and commitment; a firm "no" to the status quo; it's thinking "outside the box" and a willingness to take risks.
There are several key themes to Vision 2025:
Urgency: Our sense of urgency is based on God's deep affection for humanity and His desire that individuals from every tribe, language, people and nation on earth enter into a relationship with Him.
Partnership: We will no longer do things by ourselves that could be done with others.
Capacity Building: The results of capacity building include trained personnel, sufficient funding, and networks of people and institutions that can provide guidance, consultancy and finances.
Creative Strategies: We recognize that we cannot make our full contribution to Vision 2025 by working harder or doing more of the same. Instead, we must work differently, embrace new attitudes and expand our repertoire of strategies so we can significantly increase our effectiveness.
Sustainability: We commit ourselves to see that what has been started will be brought as close to a point of sustainability as possible.
A large proportion of the language groups needing Bible translation are located in the spiritually needy countries of the 10/40 Window, where the gospel is often resisted and restricted for political, religious and cultural reasons. This area contains two-thirds of the world's population, most of the least-evangelized nations, the largest concentration of Muslims, Hindus
