Open Day on 15 Jan 2011 in Clapham Parish Church Hall with about 40 people attending: We started with a celebration for the 30th anniversary of The Word for the World, which came into existence on 9 January 1981. An inspiring PowerPoint presentation was done on the transformation of the UK due to The Word of God being translated into English 400 years ago. Barry and Julia spoke about the explosive growth of TWFTW's work - from 33 projects last year to 46 now, and 3 literacy programs.
Barry had his hand-cycle on display for his 1000-mile fund raising cycle in August this year.
Regine and Mel shared about the training of Bible translators - a staggering 178 students from 66 languages were trained in 2010 and we now have 114 students who graduated with TWFTW Diploma in Bible Translation. The highlight of the day was the presentation of Pierre and Marek, straight from the field! Marek shared his powerful testimony of how the Word of God transformed him and is now transforming his Roma (Gypsy) community in Eastern Slovak! We spent time in small groups praying for various aspects of the work.
Thank you for your partnership with TWFTW in prayer and finance to bring God's Word to all people in their heart language. We are trusting God for an abundant harvest of souls this year through the power of His Word!
