Silk Road Ascent

West Asia

REMAINING NEED as of June 20th until August 2019: $278,619

Silk Road Ascent (SRA) is a Bible translation, Scripture engagement, multilingual education and capacity-building effort in several countries located in a sensitive area of West Asia. Wycliffe is currently focusing on three language projects with far-reaching impact, in addition to a training program serving multiple languages.

This region has long been thought to be impregnable both to Christian witness and to community development. With little or no visible church to partner with in most languages communities, Christian workers struggle to make notable progress in the face of widespread poverty and religious intolerance.

A variety of partners serve together to further Bible translation, multilingual education, and language development. Dedicated expatriate staff members are multiplying their efforts through partnership with local people, in the hope that even as expat leadership decreases, local ownership of Bible translation will ultimately increase. Local people are being trained and mentored in language development theory and practice, resulting in a core group of local experts and consultants who are equipped to carry out Bible translation and literacy work in a sustainable way for up to 70 languages.

YOUR PARTNERSHIP IS KEY

You can join Canadians like yourself to make an impact for eternity for the people touched by the Silk Road Ascent. Your financial support will help bolster language development, literacy training, Bible translation, and Scripture engagement among struggling Christians.

Your financial gifts will enable the SRA to translate Scripture and Scripture resources, promote literacy and encourage the use of translated Scriptures.

PRAYER POINTS: Fifteen national translators from several different languages attended an Advanced Translation Reviewer Checking Workshop in May. Pray that they will grow in their understanding of how to check drafted translations with community members so that helpful insights are gained for improving the translations. Pray that what is learned will be applied effectively in each of the projects.

 

OUR COMMITMENT

  • Visit the project periodically to monitor progress, address challenges and help ensure good stewardship of resources
  • Send you regular updates to keep you informed of SRA’s progress, financial need and prayer requests
  • Send you an annual tax receipt for your donations
