Why Bible Translation

Light up the darkness

Bible translation leads to life transformation. Together, united by the Word, we can take a global stance against the results of Bible poverty: social injustices, dehumanization, and hopelessness.

Prayer is God's Strategy

Jesus, speed up and empower the Bible translation movement. Rescue the nations out of darkness with the light of your Word.

Bible translators' lives are at risk everyday. Who is praying for them?

Spiritual strongholds prevent Bible translation to begin for people groups still missing God's Word. Who will stand in Christ against the spiritual forces of evil?

Meet real people who met Jesus and discovered hope when receiving God's Word in their language.

Your Global Pray for Zero Community

Unite with Christians around the world in prayer

Emilee Julie

“Encouragement in community with others who are praying towards Zero.”

Alexis Chapman

“That together in prayer we reach Zero. That every still not reached nation will have the possibility to read the whole bible in their own language.”

Shelly Feaster

“I am not hoping to gain anything. Instead I want to be a small part, especially through prayer, of ensuring that God’s Word is translated to every person in every country.”

Take your place in history. Pray for Zero.

Mexico

Caritina

Caritina Gutierrez has never been to school, and she doesn‘t understand much Spanish. But she takes great joy in communicating in Zapotec, her mother tongue.

Most mornings, after preparing for the day, this mother of seven opens the tall, red wooden doors of her palm-roofed home in the Oaxacan village of San Blas Atempa. She sits on the wall outside. Motorcabs, pedestrians and vagrant dogs pass by. She watches, she smiles at people … and she prays.

Given the opportunity, she will share the Gospel with those who stop to speak with her.

“Very frequently when I come over, there is a lady sitting there crying with her,“ says her son, Rolando. “Many people come to my mother for counsel.”

Caritina carries a New Testament in Zapotec. “God speaks my language!“ she says. “I can preach God‘s Word, and everyone can understand right away.”

Her favorite verse is John 15:7, “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!“ (NLT)

What has God given Caritina that she asked for? In a community where men are known for alcohol abuse, her husband and seven sons have all accepted Christ. And each of her sons married Christian women.

“I wanted to see all our family in front of a church worshiping God, and God did it,“ she says. “He is bringing transformation in my community.”

Update: Caritina went to be with the Lord. Yet, her legacy and love for Christ still impacts many.

Ethiopia

Berki

God’s Word now shines deeper and brighter in southwest Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, thanks to people like Berki. As he rode his bicycle from village to village, sharing Bible stories one-on-one, his fellow Hamer people felt comfortable around him. They knew he was one of them.

But in another way, he’s set apart. Years ago, when the time came for his tribe’s violent rite of passage to manhood, he took a stand. He chose his new faith, even as his family threatened his life.

“I know that God called me for his purposes,” Berki said. Helping to translate oral Bible stories and then sharing them in his Hamar language strengthened his faith as he gave “reason for the hope” within him, according to 1 Peter 3:15.

Guatemala

Diego

When Diego nears the coast today, the smell of salt air takes him back more than 20 years to a time when he was 14 and striking out on his own to find work on the banana plantations.

When he arrived at his destination, the hardworking teen quickly landed a job. Just as quickly, he also landed new friends … in a local gang.

Today, fading tattoos on his body mark his two-decade journey serving this brotherhood. He’d not planned to live a life of violence, crime and alcoholism. But after a time, he didn’t want to hear about any alternative.

“My mind was just too rebellious,” Diego says. “Many people talked to me about believing in Jesus. I had been in jail in Guatemala in 1994 and even before.”

Finally his lifestyle led to a crisis. Diego’s belly began to swell. Before long, he was doubled over in pain that grew worse and worse. A trip to the hospital brought some relief, but also a disturbing diagnosis.

“It’s cirrhosis,” the doctor said. “And it’s incurable.”

“So I looked for some other ways to heal my life,” Diego says. “I never found any. I suffered for a long time. Then I remembered about God. I looked for Him to see if He really existed.”

Diego fasted and prayed for three days.

“Wednesday, Thursday, Friday — I prayed for two hours a day,” he says. “I talked to God and asked Him to forgive me. I was in much vice. I was lost and I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t have any escape. So I said, ‘Lord, if you really exist, heal me, because I can’t take it anymore. Otherwise I will kill myself. I don’t want to suffer anymore.’”

On the third day, God answered Diego, healing the cirrhosis and freeing him from addiction. Diego gave his life to Christ that day. “I automatically quit drinking,” he says.

That was eight years ago.
