Workshops Using Pioneering Rapid-Translation Method ORLANDO, Florida, October 10, 2016 | TruthPR.com | —Wycliffe Associates, an international organization involving people in the acceleration of Bible translation anticipates that in 2017, it will reach 1,000 new Bible translation workshops using their pioneering method of Bible translation known as MAST (Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation). MAST is a collaborative rapid-translation system in which groups of mother-tongue translators work in parallel to translate books of the Bible while maintaining the highest levels of accuracy and quality. “The whole translation strategy is based on learning principles that have been tested and proven over a long period of time in a wide range of educational settings,” says Bruce Smith, president and CEO of Wycliffe Associates. New language translations are launched through a MAST workshop, a training program facilitated by Wycliffe Associates, which brings together mother tongue translators, church checkers, and language consultants to work on a new-language Bible translation at the same time. The result is a significant savings in translation time, often reducing a years-long process to a matter of months or weeks. Using traditional methods, a translation of the New Testament can take 25 to 30 years to complete. In late 2014, Wycliffe Associates piloted a MAST workshop with mother-tongue translators in a nation where Christians suffer ongoing persecution by members of the majority religion. Thirteen translators were divided into teams of three or four, and each team was assigned one of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. Every team member was then assigned a portion of that book to translate. Working 12-hour days, each translator completed approximately 34 verses each day, drafting during the mornings and using a five-step process to quality check the verses in the afternoons and evenings. By the end of two weeks, the translators had completed the drafting and checking process for Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and 1 and 2 Timothy—approximately 48 percent of the New Testament—with no decrease to high quality standards of the translation. At the request of Wycliffe Associates, translation experts checked the MAST translators’ work and confirmed the accuracy of the team’s translation. Dr. John Luton, who has participated in checking the work of numerous translation projects around the world says, “The work produced through MAST methodology is excellent. It compares very favorably with texts produced through other methods.” So far this year, 314 new translation projects have been started using MAST, and MAST teams have completed the entire New Testament in 58 languages, with 100 more translations nearing completion. “Our breakthrough MAST strategy is accelerating Bible translation beyond anything we could have imagined, even a couple of years ago,” says Smith. “It is not Westerners doing the translation work in remote areas—it’s nationals being equipped to translate God’s Word themselves.” ### Request an Interview with Donn Hallman About Wycliffe AssociatesOrganized in 1967 by friends of Bible translators, Wycliffe Associates empowers national Bible translators to provide God’s Word in their own language, partners with the local church to direct and guard translation work, harnessing their passion and desire for God’s Word, and engages people from all around the world to provide resources, technology, training, and support for Bible translation. Because millions of people around the world still wait to read the Scriptures in the language of their heart, Wycliffe Associates is working as quickly as it can to see every verse of God’s Word translated into every tongue to speak to every heart. Last year, 6,279 Wycliffe Associates staff and volunteers worked to speed Bible translations in 75 countries.

Their team will deliver clean water solutions to the areas of Les Cayes and Miragoane for survivors of Hurricane Matthew. Mercy Chefs’ Founder and President, Gary LeBlanc says, “One of the first key issues survivors will face is water contamination.

In addition, they will pass out 250 individual water purification straws. Each straw will provide one person with up to six months of clean drinking water. The organization has already identified another location in Cap Haitien, Haiti which is in need of an even larger unit.

Audio Download for Radio Sisters of Compassion deliver gifts—and hope—to remote villagers in India Widows now have decent roofing; Children can now learn with good school supplies The children of a remote village in northeast India now have school supplies, thanks to gifts delivered by Gospel for Asia-supported Sisters of Compassion. The supplies will help them learn in the tutoring center the sisters established this year. WILLS POINT, Tex, September 15, 2016 | TruthPR.com | —Gospel for Asia-supported Sisters of Compassion recently delivered gifts to improve the lives of children and poor widows in a remote village in northeastern India. The Sisters of Compassion are specialized women workers trained to minister to the poor. The items they supplied included school supplies for the children and tin roofing material to protect the widows from the elements. The villagers welcomed the arrival of the gifts in a celebratory meeting that included guest speakers and people from the surrounding areas. The children displayed their new supplies and were reminded that God loves and cares for them. “It’s amazing how much even simple gifts can improve people’s lives,” said Dr. K.P. Yohannan, founder and president of Gospel for Asia. “These villagers live far from the cities and markets, so they have to struggle to survive. We’re grateful to have had a part in helping them attain a better future.” The villagers depend on jhum cultivation to grow their own food—a process that involves clearing the land of vegetation to plant crops. They have few other source of income. The Sisters of Compassion began serving the villagers in February 2016. Among their other projects, they founded a tutoring center to educate the children. But until now the children were lacking in basic supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils and erasers. The Sisters also provided geometry boxes for the children to help them learn mathematical skills. These kits typically include compasses, dividers, rulers, and other tools. To the children, they represent opportunity—which was scarce before these gifts arrived. “I never thought that I would own a geometry box,” said Pritimala, a fifth-grade student. “This is very useful for my math class. I did not even tell my parents to buy a geometry box because I knew they have no money.” The roofing material will provide protection for villagers during the rainy season, which can be life-threatening in this part of India. The widows especially appreciate receiving this material that will allow them now to live in safety and comfort. “I cannot explain how happy I am by getting tin sheets,” said Kartarung, one of the widows. “Each year I and my sons used to work hard to replace the portion of the thatch where water drips during the rainy season. Now we can replace the thatch roof with tin sheets, and I am very excited for the gift. We can get sound sleep, even in rainy season.” This is just one of the long-term improvements Sisters of Compassion expect to bring to the people of the remote village. “God loves these people so much,” said Dr. Yohannan, “and we want them to know that. Let’s pray that these expressions of God’s love will make a lasting impact on their hearts.” More information is available atwww.gfa.org. ### GOSPEL FOR ASIA has – for more than 30 years – provided humanitarian assistance and spiritual hope to millions across Asia, especially among those who have yet to hear the Good News. Last year, this included more than 75,000 sponsored children, free medical services for more than 180,000 people, 6,000 wells drilled, 11,000 water filters installed, Christmas presents for more than 400,000 needy families, and spiritual teaching available in 110 languages in 14 nations through radio ministry.

Audio Download for Radio IDU Celebrates Success of 2016 Initiative; Prepares for Further Impact on Pentecost Sunday June 4, 2017 Wayne Pederson, chairman for the International Day of the Unreached, which is set for Pentecost Sunday, June 4, 2017.COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., September 15, 2016 | TruthPR.com | – The Alliance for the Unreached has announced that effective Sept. 1, Wayne Pederson assumed the role of chairman for the second annual International Day for the Unreached (IDU), which is set for Pentecost Sunday, June 4. The alliance is composed of founding members Reach Beyond, Bibles For The World, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Operation Mobilization and Missio Nexus. Pederson accepted the role as a natural extension of his time as president of Reach Beyond. He recently retired from that position so he and his wife, Willi, could spend more time with family while broadening their ministry influence as lead ambassadors for Reach Beyond and IDU and serving on ministry boards. “For eight years I was blessed to serve in a ministry focused on reaching the unreached,” said Pederson. “Now I get the blessing of extending that focus as the chairman of the 2017 event. As Willi and I enter our ‘fourth quarter’ of ministry, I can’t think of a better way to invest our time than serving ministries we love and raising awareness of the plight of those who have never had a chance to hear the gospel.” The purpose of IDU is to educate and inspire North American Christians to increase their passion and efforts to reach the more than 6,000 people groups worldwide in which the population is no more than 2 percent Christian. “Wayne is the perfect ambassador for this event. He understands the issues in the U.S. and around the world,” said Steve Johnson, president of the IDU Alliance Steering Committee. “We’re seeing less and less emphasis placed on the Great Commission in many churches. The alliance came together around one cause—to reignite a passion in the hearts of believers to reach the lost, locally and globally. We’re trying to drive a stake in the ground to say, ‘The time is now.’ We have the technology. We have the resources. We have the means. Now we just need the commitment to get the job done.” The Alliance encourages pastors, lay leaders and churches across North America to commemorate the day by preaching on the subject of the unreached, passing out materials, viewing videos, conducting awareness campaigns, praying and advocating for the cause through social media. “So many people advocate for countless causes, and most of them are good,” said Pederson. “But the fact is, when you consider that there are over 2 billion people who haven’t ever heard the message of Jesus and that about 70,000 people die each day without that opportunity, it gives me a great burden and sense of urgency. The International Day for the Unreached is all about moving people from concern to action.” The inaugural event on May 15, 2016, garnered support from such noted Christian leaders as Rick Warren, (senior pastor of Saddleback Church), Paul Eschleman (director of the Jesus Film Project), George Verwer (founder of Operation Mobilization) and Marv Newell (executive vice president of Missio Nexus). ### To Request an Interview with Wayne Pederson, Click here. The International Day for the Unreached was first conceived in 2015 and launched on Pentecost Sunday, May 15, 2016. The founding members of IDU were Reach Beyond, Bibles For The World, The Seed Company, Operation Mobilization and Missio Nexus. Wycliffe Bible Translators joined the founding members in early 2016. The event occurs annually on Pentecost Sunday in honor of the day when the Holy Spirit equipped believers to take the gospel message around the world. In 2017, IDU will be on June 4 -- Pentecost Sunday. More information is available at www.dayfortheunreached.org.

Ministry releases group rates for Sharing Hope in Crisis Student Training CHARLOTTE, N.C., September 9, 2016 / TruthPR.com / – Many young people today are broken-hearted and face painful challenges in life. In response to this need, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has placed a focus on equipping youth to share hope with their friends and peers who are suffering through a personal crisis. To reach as many students as possible, the BGEA has released special discounted group rates for the online Sharing Hope in Crisis Student Training course. The training includes four lessons with videos, readings, exercises and quizzes that cover content such as knowing what to say – or not to say – to someone who is going through a crisis. “For many years we have held seminars around the world, equipping Christians to appropriately share the hope of Jesus in difficult times,” said Jack Munday, international director of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, a crisis-chaplaincy ministry. “We realized that teenagers – particularly high-schoolers – are not immune to tragedy. From broken homes and difficult relationships, to alcohol and car accidents, there’s a great need for our young people to be prepared.” The group registration is specialized for students who may struggle to afford their own registration or may lack the time to take a course by themselves. The group training is a beneficial way for students to learn alongside each other in their already formed youth groups or Sunday school classes. “High School students would benefit greatly from the information available in Sharing Hope in Crisis, but we also understand that there are challenges when it comes to time and money. We’ve done our best to overcome those obstacles by making this as flexible as possible to fit around their home and school life,” said B.J. Rogers, assistant dean of Online Evangelism Training for the BGEA. “Additionally, we’ve incorporated the ability to have a group-designated mentor to help engage members, maintain a study schedule, and maximize learning, as well as a private discussion forum, which encourages communication and interaction between the mentor and members.” Pricing for the Sharing Hope in Crisis Student Training begins at $40 for an individual student, but can be reduced to as little as $20 per student using the discounted group rate.

Audio Download Available for Radio Volunteers Supported by Gospel for Asia Distribute More Than 33,000 Nets on World Mosquito Day Transmitted Diseases include Dengue, Yellow Fever, Zika, Malaria Net recipients gather to hear a health-awareness program on International World Mosquito Day from Gospel for Asia-supported workers. WILLS POINT, Tex., September 7, 2016 / TruthPR.com / – Workers supported by Gospel for Asia (GFA) recently distributed some 33,000 mosquito nets to guard against insect-borne diseases, including yellow fever, malaria, dengue and Zika, to commemorate World Mosquito Day. GFA-supported workers held a variety of events to distribute the nets, including distributing 9,000 nets to students living in hostels away from their families. Each student was given two nets, one for personal use and the other to send to their families. “I am thankful for the mosquito net,” said hostel student Marcus, who is studying in 9th grade. “I am from a poor family, and there is no one to meet my needs.” In the District Medical Hospital in Odisha, an area where an estimated 400,000 are affected by malaria and other mosquito-borne sicknesses, workers distributed nets to patients. In another district, workers organized a dozen events to draw awareness to the issue and distributed 2,050 nets to impoverished families. In the tea-growing district of Assam, workers held awareness programs about disease prevention and gave away 2,000 nets to tea-garden employees. “For many days, me and my family members were suffering from malaria,” said tea worker Puran, when he received a free net. “Now, this net will protect us from this sickness.” Mosquitoes carry a number of illnesses, including yellow fever, malaria and dengue. Recently, India issued a warning about the dangers of Zika, a disease that is concentrated in Latin America now, but may spread to other continents. Netting provides some protection from the spread of diseases transmitted by mosquito bites. National World Mosquito Day commemorates the discovery in 1897 by British doctor Sir Richard Ross that mosquitoes transmit malaria. “These illnesses destroy lives and families, often leaving many victims in misery and poverty,” said K.P. Yohannan, founder and president of GFA. “We are very thankful that we can help the individuals and families in these areas. In addition to distributing these mosquito nets, we want to continue praying ask for prayers for these precious people that God would protect them and that they would be able to may live peaceful lives without worrying about these diseases.” ### Gospel for Asia has – for more than 30 years – provided humanitarian assistance and spiritual hope to millions across Asia, especially among those who have yet to hear the Good News.

Teachers encourage the students to continue to develop their gifts as they grow. The schools also supply snacks and juice each day provided by the church. On the last day, each child receives a VBS certificate and is given the opportunity to participate in a presentation for their parents by demonstrating the songs and dances they learned and showcasing the crafts they made. To date, more than 6,000 VBS programs have been conducted.

Audio Available for Download and Broadcast. ARLINGTON, TX, February 9, 2016 | TruthPR.com | Can prayer help heal a nation? Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln believed in national prayer. Following this presidential practice, United Cry DC16 is inviting pastors, Christian leaders, churches and believers from across the nationwide, to gather and pray at the Lincoln Memorial on April 9th, 2016. “America’s future is in danger. The polls show, people are worried about the economy, jobs, families, terrorism, racial conflict and the attacks on biblical values,” states Lewis Hogan, Founder of United Cry DC16. “We are asking pastors to join in prayer. Only a united church can help heal a divided America.” Diverse leaders adding their voices include George Wood, Ronnie Floyd, Anne Graham Lotz, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, Sammy Rodriguez, and Doug Stringer. The 7-hour prayer gathering will ask God for forgiveness, blessing and spiritual awakening in America, and declare the United States is, “One Nation, Under God.” The assembly will reflect on the anniversary date of April 9, 1865, which marked the end of the Civil War. This gathering will take place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Continuing the tradition of prayer set by President Abraham Lincoln and the healing he prescribed for a divided country, one focus of United Cry DC16 will be repentance for racial division. Invited guests include the daughter and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Drs. Bernice and Alveda King. “There is hope for America and prayer can make a difference,” Hogan explains. “We are gathering, not to protest or complain about politics, but to honor our leaders and pastors by praying for them. We are coming with humble hearts and asking God to heal the spiritual condition of our nation.” All Christian pastors, priests, leaders, and believers are invited to join national Christian leaders to lift a United Cry together at this historic, multi-ethnic, multi–generational, gathering on April 9th, 2016, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
