ORLANDO, Fla. — A new effort to translate the Bible into every living language kicks off Saturday with the help of a $50 million anonymous gift to the Orlando-based Wycliffe USA — the world's largest bible-translation company.

The goal of Wycliffe's Last Languages Campaign is to translate the Bible for all of the 2,400 languages that still do not have one. Those represent about a third of all languages spoken and include nearly 200 million people, mostly in three regions — Central Africa, northern India-southern China and Indonesia-Papua New Guinea.

The translations are expected to take at least 17 years to complete. the rest

This is exciting and praiseworthy news! The Faith Comes By Hearing family is rejoicing before the Lord because this shows God is in control and wants to get His Word to those with no access.
