THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
50 people attended the Open Day.15 of them were children of different ages! We want to thank everyone for their genuine interest in the work of Bible Translation. Not only did a local church host the gathering, but several friends prepared nibbles from countries where TWFTW has projects.
A presentation on Bible translation projects was given; a short film (where translators in Malawi and Tanzania were interviewed)
was shown; Julia whetted people's appetite to read Operation Jonah and shared her heart when Tim was missing (reviews on the book can be found here
); A presentation was given on training Bible translators; Mel related how God called her to be involved in TWFTW as Student Administrator; the attendees were then led in a time of prayer; the impact of Bible translation for a society was highlighted by showing how instrumental the Word of God was for the transformation of Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries. Question and Answer session stimulated more interest.?
Various people had prepared nibbles that are typical of the countries where TWFTW has projects and guests were sent on their way with a homemade winter soup.
