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.

Learning how technology impacts Bible translation—and how they can get involved is what Check-IT-Out conference attendees will be doing for the next six days. They'll see how everything from software to satellites, solar power, tablet computers, and non-Roman scripts are helping Bible translation, talk with IT professionals who've served all over the world, and explore how they could contribute their IT skills, either short- or long-term.

  • Pray for the staff making presentations this week, and that the computers and other equipment will work well.
  • Ask God to speak to attendees as they explore technology and consider becoming involved.
