    Tablets for National Translators

    Witch doctor turned Bible translator

    God’s Word defeats superstition

    Budi,* a man whose real name we cannot share for security purposes, was a fearsome witch doctor. He carried a terrifying dagger with him everywhere and taunted villagers with supernatural powers: healing, protection, or sometimes things more sinister. Others lived in fear of his power.

    Budi thought that with a large dagger at his side he harnessed the most powerful forces among his people—but he didn’t know the power within the computer tablets used by national Bible translators . . . a power “sharper than any double-edged sword” . . . God’s Word.

    Nearby, a MAST Bible translation workshop had begun to translate God’s Word into the language of his people. Translators started sharing passages of Scripture with their friends and neighbors, and when Budi encountered the Word of God in the language of his heart, the power of the Holy Spirit pierced his soul!

    Budi is a changed man today. “I’ve given up my ‘powerful dagger,’” he says with a smile, “and replaced it with Christ!” He has even become a Bible translator himself!

    But hundreds of other language groups like Budi’s are asking us for computer tablets, loaded with Bible translation resources and software, to begin their own Bible translations. We want to say yes to them, and we’re hoping to launch workshops in the next 90 days to start all of these translations.

    The workers are ready. But to start these new translations, we need to supply 1,585 tablets and we do not currently have the funds. And without these funds, people who have been hungering for Scripture in their language will continue to wait, continue to come up against evil forces without the power of God’s Word in their hands.

    Your gift today of $300 will provide a computer tablet—fully equipped with Bible translation software—to help speed translation among language groups desperate to have God’s Word in their heart language! With each tablet you provide right now, national Bible translators can be assured that their work is backed up and protected as they work in difficult countries and hostile situations.

    Over and over we see these tablets change lives, when someone receives God’s Word for the first time in their heart language. And it can happen so quickly. In Budi’s community, 33 more people have already come to faith simply by reading God’s translated Word!

    Whether you provide one tablet for $300—or if you feel led to provide tablets for an entire MAST workshop for $7,800—your gift right now will bring the Word of God to multitudes of people who have never seen the Bible in their own heart language, and lives will be forever changed by the power of God’s Word.
