When it comes to the work of Bible translation, national translators are an essential part of making sure that projects are completed. National translators are local people God has called to translate the Bible for their language groups. These translators are connected to their community and highly respected, and they are often able to find words and expressions in their own language that match keywords in the Bible.
However, national translators rarely have a team of prayer partners in the same way translators sent out and supported by Christians in the United States do.
You can stand in the gap for them by praying for their specific needs.
The task of translation is difficult, and national translators face a unique set of challenges and sacrifices as they work. Your prayers truly make a difference in the lives of the people God is raising up to bring his Word to communities around the world.
