According to Wycliffe Bible Translators, some 200 million people worldwide have never seen a Bible in their own language. Wycliffe’s ongoing mission is to bring Bibles to these people, Bibles translated into their native languages. Vision 2025, an initiative launched by Wycliffe U.K. to begin a translation program for every language that needs one by the year 2025, states that over 2,000 languages are waiting for this Bible translation work to begin. And launching translation programs is just the beginning of the process. Considering that translation of the New Testament alone can take up to 20 years, bringing God’s Word to “every tribe and language and people and nation” is quite the daunting project.
