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 language. Unfortunately, 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 languages spoken there - languages like Lunyole, Lugwere and Aringa-ti. Gift and Kathryn live in Entebbe with their sons, James and Simon Peter.
In February 2020, Brenda and Gordon Wilkinson visited Gift and Kathryn to help organise a trip to Uganda for a small team from St. John's. This has all been arranged, and ten church members will visit Uganda in February 2023. They will visit some of the translation teams and see for themselves how much it means to people to be able to read the Bible in their Heart Language. The trip will also encourage Gift, Kathryn and the translation teams.
We look forward to feedback from the team while they are in Uganda and on their return.
