I (john) have been in Orlando since last week Sunday for a big Wycliffe USA recruiters conference followed by a smaller gathering of those of us who concentrate on working with the NextGen populations... I write this note from Orlando airport... on this American holiday we call SuperBowlSunday.
Turns out that our task is an "impossible" (God sized) one... we are recruiting the missionaries who will hopefully begin the Last Languages still needing Bible translation to be started in their language... There are almost 200 million people in almost 2300 languages still waiting for God's word in their heart language. They have waited entirely too long and our goal is to see translation work begun in all languages by the year 2025.
I am tired from 8 straight days of meetings... tomorrow will be a day of rest... Thanks for your partnership in our work!!!
