Wycliffe Bible Translators

Church Representative: Barbara Cottier

Wycliffe Bible Translators want everyone to hear God speak to them as they engage with the Bible in their own language. 1.5 billion people are still waiting for the Bible in the language that speaks to them best. It’s not right that some of us have free access to the Bible while others don’t. Together we can change this.

Gift and Kathryn Asiku in Uganda

St. John’s supports the work of Gift and Kathryn Asiku in Uganda, where the Bible is being translated into some of the over 42 different languages spoken there - languages like Lunyole, Lugwere and Aringa-ti.

In February 2020 Brenda and Gordon Wilkinson visited Gift and Kathryn with the aim of organizing a trip to Uganda for a small team from St. John’s. We still hope to do this when it becomes possible. During the visit Brenda and Gordon visited several of the translations teams and saw how much it means to the people to be able to read the Bible in their Heart Language. To learn more about their visit watch the video on our YouTube channel
