The Bible in Every Written Language Sooner than Thought!   Wycliffe Bible Translators expects to have the Bible—or at least some of it—written in all of the world’s 6,909 spoken languages by 2025. About 2,200 languages remain without a Bible, which represents about 350 million people—mostly in India, China, sub-Saharan Africa and Paqua New Guinea. Portable computers and satellites get the credit for speeding things up by about 125 years. Previously, a Wycliffe missionary family or team could spend decades learning and transcribing one language in a remote corner of the Earth. –DenverPost.com; from the “Sower,” Arthur, IL

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!    “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” –Gal 5:13

GOD IS FAITHFUL…(Letting the Scriptures Speak) When:

  1. Discouraged remember “because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” (Lam. 3:23)
  2. You Doubt your Salvation remember: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13)
  3. You are Tempted remember: “no temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” (1 Cor. 10:13)

Starting Next Month–August–Lord Willing: A “NEW” SERIES of ARTICLES

Recently we came across a lecture given back in 1998. (We had given it little thought for some time.) That year the theme chosen by the Christian Scholars Conference was Robert Henry Boll–the most outstanding editor Word and Work has ever had. Since in 1998 I edited W&W, they asked me to speak on Brother Boll as a writer and editor. (Other speakers lectured on other aspects of his multi-faceted ministry. I don’t have access to any of their messages.) We believe you will profit from learning or being reminded about this influential-but-humble servant of the Lord. Lord willing, this series will continue for several months.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
