In October of last year, YWAM launched its global prayer focus, called The Invitation, by highlighting a topic near and dear to the heart of YWAM’s founder, Loren Cunningham. We prayed for the translation and distribution of the Bible. To put it another way, we prayed for an end to Bible poverty. In the months since we prayed, YWAM workers have been responding in many ways.
YWAM invites you to pray for actual Bible translation and distribution initiatives happening in many parts of the world.
YWAM Blantyre, Malawi was preparing to work with a tribe with no written scripture and they realized there is Bible poverty all around them in Malawi. While there is a full Bible written in the native Chichewa language its cost is equivalent to one third of a month’s wage, which is a significant barrier for people. God has given YWAM Blantyre a vision to have a copy of scripture in all three million homes in Malawi. Thus, they have begun printing the Gospel of Mark and have purchased hundreds of audio Bibles to distribute to people who can’t read.
YWAM Chiang Rai, Thailand received two teams in January 2016, one from Brazil and one from Kona, Hawaii. Together with the local YWAMers the teams handed out 1,000 Bibles.
