Praise the Lord for two new Scripture websites launching today -- the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the “95 Theses," sparking the Protestant Reformation. Luther was passionate for the truth of God's Word (sola Scriptura!), and God used the printing press to get His Word into the hands of the common people. Likewise website distribution is the next technological wave for getting the Gospel message into the hands and onto the phones of people who are separated from the truth of God's Word.
 
Our partner organization used their new "platform" for constructing websites that allows for distribution...
 
  • Praise God for technology that’s allowed website team members living in Germany, the UK, North Carolina, Florida, and Michigan to work together on this project.
  • Pray for God's blessing on these two new websites (one in Roman script and another in Ajami script), that God would use them for the distribution of resources for His glory!
  • Pray that God's Word would go out in power and would reach the hearts he intends it for.
 

Pray for those attending the 2017 Scripture Engagement Summit at SIL International Media Services this week on the JAARS campus. The thirty attendees from partner organizations in the United States, Americas, and Asia are meeting to discuss effective Scripture engagement strategies in multilingual communities.

Pray for participants taking pre-field training in the Intercultural Communications Course at JAARS. The four-week course runs through August 18. Thirty-four adults will be preparing to serve Bible translation in countries around the world.
