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.
 

A website building workshop for 21 students working in 11 different languages is set for February 9-19 in Moscow with our partner, Institute for Bible Translation.

The students will learn how to make Scripture websites and linguistic websites. In two weeks, a Scripture website can be up and running, giving people access to God’s Word in their heart language. Students learn how to upload pictures, audio, and video, and use those pieces to make web pages. They also learn about search engine optimization, receiving copyright approvals, and obtaining domain names.

Your gifts and prayers are helping make this possible. Thank...

  • Praise God for each workshop attendee and their desire to get Scripture in their heart language online. Ask God to help them learn new skills and persevere as they work to complete their websites.
  • Pray for safe travel for each one traveling to and from the workshop.
  • Ask God to prepare the hearts of visitors to the new websites to read or hear his Word in the language they understand best.

A training workshop is starting soon in Asia. Attendees are learning to build Scripture websites with the goal of putting the sites online by the end of the two-week class.

Praise God that more people will be at the workshop than originally anticipated which means more websites will be launched and more Scripture online.

Pray for the instructors as they work to make accommodations for the additional attendees.

Praise God for each person coming to the workshop and their desire and enthusiasm for getting Scripture in their heart language online. Ask God to prepare them for learning new skills and for perseverance as they work to complete their websites.

Pray for safe travel for each one traveling to and from the workshop.

Pray that God would prepare the hearts of those people who will visit one of the new websites to read or hear his Word in the language they best understand.
