Bible Society Australia isn’t about any one person. From the very start we’ve been a Society. Bible Society is the thousands of supporters and volunteers like you. And it’s through your generosity this year we’ve been able to:
- Train 30 literacy teachers in South Sudan under Professor Twong Yolong – so thousands of Collo people, traumatised by war, can read and write
- Translated the scriptures to the Tay, Nung and Muong people in Vietnam – so they can hear God say he loves them in their heart language
- Strengthened the faith of hundreds of High School leaders, from Hobart to Perth, thanks to Biblical Confidence and Leadership Masterclasses
- Completion of Indigenous translations – the Book of Daniel for the Pitjantjatjara people, Mark’s Gospel in Maung for people of Goulburn Island, the Kunwinjku Shorter Bible for people in West Arnhem Land and the Arrante Shorter Bible for Indigenous people outside Alice Springs
These programmes simply wouldn’t happen without your prayers and financial support. And there’s one appeal that’s still open if you want to give again at Christmas time. You can give to our 2016 Bible Mission appeal for the turbulent Middle East here.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Yours in Christ,
Bible Society Australia CEO
