Awarding Faithfulness

This month we had the joy of giving out another award for translation efforts. This time the award was for reaching both the 1 and 5 article milestone since 8 articles were turned in at one time. We pray that these resources are a blessing to you in your life and ministry.

If you have not received an award certificate and the appropriate ePub books for your past translation efforts be sure to contact us and enroll in this retroactive award program. For Award program details see our Translator’s Group post.

Your Translation

As we finish out an old year and begin a new one translations might not be your highest priority. Yet as you look forward to being intentional this year about following Christ consider how this translation ministry could be a big step in that direction. Not only do you get to meditate on the truths of God’s Word as you carefully work through your translation in a unique devotional time (if you let it be), but you also get to use your gifts and be a blessing to people around the world. This is intentional personal growth and service to others at the same time!
