App gives global access to Bible stories and translation

Mission Network News - Thu, 10/30/2014 - 5:00am

International (WAS)—Wycliffe Associates, a global organization that empowers national Bible translators around the world, has launched a new, free app that makes Bible stories accessible to smartphone users worldwide. Called translationStudio, the Android operating system app is available for download on Google Play . “God’s Word in every language took a giant step toward reality as our translationStudio app was released for free download in the Google Play store,” says Bruce Smith, president and CEO of Wycliffe Associates. “This is just the beginning of developing a tool that puts Bible translation within the reach of Christians worldwide.” Earlier this year, Wycliffe Associates tested the beta version of the app with translation teams working in some of the most difficult and dangerous regions of the world for Christians. Their feedback has been incorporated into the current release. The translationStudio app features “Open Bible Stories,” a set of 50 fully-illustrated Bible stories. Open Bible Stories has been released under Creative Commons’ Attribution Share-Alike licensing, which allows translation into any language, anywhere, at any time, and by anyone--without copyright limitations.

Open Bible Stories currently includes a collection of 21 Old Testament stories and 29 New Testament stories, and provides a chronological overview of God’s relationship with humanity, from creation to redemption. “In the coming months, we will have Open Bible Stories loaded in at least 50 gateway languages, enabling people who are bilingual in any of these languages to begin translating these Bible stories into their own language,” says Smith. “Once local translators have completed the Open Bible Stories, they can easily make the transition into a full Bible translation program. The Open Bible Stories method actually fits perfectly into the culture of many language groups that have a tradition of storytelling handed down through generations.” The Resource section of the app provides information on key terms and how to overcome translation challenges, intended to assist local translators in creating translations that are clear, natural, and accurate. In addition, collaboration tools enable any number of people to work together, online or offline, to draft and revise their work for the best possible result. “We are also working to load English source text for the entire Old and New Testament that will be licensed to allow immediate translation into any language, without copyright limitations,” says Smith. “All of this is available at no cost to the local church or their translators.” The digital format enables the Scriptures to be published immediately and at very low cost through the Internet or by sharing memory cards. “This project is not finished. It is really just beginning,” says Smith. “We need technicians, app developers, trainers, and Bible scholars to share in maximizing the benefit of these resources to the global church. We need financial partners to include this strategy in their stewardship priorities as a blessing to the world. We need partners to lift this up in prayer, seeking God’s continuing wisdom and guidance for everyone involved.” If you fit one of these descriptions and want to help, contact Wycliffe Associates here. Pray that God will open the right doors and lead the right workers to help with this project. About Wycliffe Associates:  Organized in 1967 by friends of Bible translators, Wycliffe Associates is a ministry that participates in Bible translation worldwide. Because millions of people around the world still wait to read the Scriptures in the language of their heart, Wycliffe Associates is working as quickly as it can to see every verse of God’s Word translated into every tongue to speak to every heart. Wycliffe Associate empowers national Bible translators to provide God’s Word in their own language; partners with the local church to direct and guard translation work, harnessing their passion and desire for God’s Word; and engages people from all around the world to provide resources, technology, training, and support for Bible translation. Last year alone, 3,145 Wycliffe Associates team members worked to speed Bible translations in 71 different countries.

Leadership training in China: reaching youth through small groups

Mission Network News - Thu, 10/30/2014 - 5:00am

China (MNN) -- A lot is happening for the Church in China. Make sure you're not missing it. In China, house churches are often not legally registered as the government demands of them. These churches are small and imitate the house churches described in Acts. They provide a place of intimate community and solid discipleship. The problem is: they do not have a lot of freedom to operate. China Partner comes alongside the registered Church in China to support them. Working with the Church that's recognized by the government gives them more freedom to operate as a foreign entity. Erik Burklin says China Partner starts with the leaders. "We're equipping especially lay pastors and volunteer church leaders--those who are actually doing the ministry of local churches, many of them who come from rural churches." China Partner is on the ground right now in Fuzho, the capital of the Fujian province. On this trip they will visit two more provinces. The pastors from various churches are invited to a training center where they are taught Christian leadership through spiritual formation. At the training center this time, Burklin says there are some new topics being covered: "This is very exciting. We are starting to focus more on some of the more of the practical issues of the pastoral leadership. One of them is marriage and family." Burklin explains that lay and volunteer pastors in China are too often expected to be in "ministry mode" at all times, ready to address the many needs of the congregation at any moment. Meanwhile, they have to work a job or run a business on the side in order to provide for their family. Part of the training will address what boundaries are appropriate to set up, and how to keep them so that the pastors can take care of their family. "The other thing that we're concentrating on is youth ministry training. The way we're doing that is through some much-needed small group ministry training, just helping them to understand the principles of how small groups can actually help build community amongst one another. Therefore, in a smaller group setting, they have a little bit of a better way to also reach the next generation for Christ," Burklin says. Burklin explains that these small groups are really no different from house churches except that the government doesn't interfere with them. "House churches are really small groups meeting in a home," he says. Small groups are becoming more and more necessary for registered churches as they grow rapidly. "Within the registered churches there is really a tremendous need of teaching them how to operate in a small group ministry setting because so many of these churches are huge," Burklin says. "Many people have come to faith over the last few years, but now the big challenge is: 'Okay, how do we train these new believers? How do we disciple them, how do we equip them?' A small group ministry model is very helpful" for that context. While this small group setting can reap some of the same benefits as the house churches do, they also have another advantage. Registered churches in China often have a good relationship with the government, depending on the location. Burklin says there is an extreme mutual respect. While the churches don't agree with all aspects of the government, they are respecting the leadership that God has put into place without compromising their morals. And sometimes, churches even use their relationship to witness to government officials. As pastors come to seek this valuable training, there are many things you can do to help. Most importantly, you can pray. Burklin says, "Pray for their spiritual health and also their families. They have tremendous pressure put on them to...be ministers 24/7." Here are some other ways to get involved. For more background on China Partner, check out these stories.

Turn back clocks this weekend

WGRC News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 1:52pm

Remember 2am this Sunday morning is the day to turn back the clocks an hour when daylight saving time ends for the year. As we go through our homes and change the clocks we should also make this the time to replace the batteries in our smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The chance of surviving a fire significantly increases when you have a working smoke alarm. In addition to replacing the batteries, you should also prepare and practice having a family fire escape plan.

More and More Like Him

Christian Post - Living - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 12:54pm
When two people have been married for a while, they start becoming like each other. This has happened with my wife and me. We know each other so well that I can start a sentence, and she can finish it. She knows what I'm thinking, even when I'm not saying it. I'm just amazed at her intuition. Having been married for more than three decades now, we've spent a long time together. This is even more the case when we have been spending time with Jesus Christ.

Orphans helpless, but not hopeless

Mission Network News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 5:00am
Guatemala (MNN) -- There are over 163 million orphans in this world. UNICEF estimates that more than 370,000 of those orphans live in Guatemala. These orphans plunge beneath the poverty line, living in orphanages, slums, and on the streets. They are helpless, but not hopeless. Orphan Outreach has always worked to help children in need. They help to create long-lasting effects in lives by sharing the word of God, feeding the hungry, building homes, and spending time with kids. They also work to provide medical care, and this year they are in dire need of more medical professionals. In past years, three days had been dedicated to medical clinics in the Lake Atitlan region for the community of Santiago. Volunteers were able to help more than 900 people. But this year, a fourth day has been added, and Orphan Outreach is eager to see how many they will be able to serve. They say, “Physicians, Physicians Assistants, Nurses, and all medical professionals are needed to make this trip a success!” As Orphan Outreach is in need of medical professionals, they also extend an invitation to non-medical professionals with a passion for children. They will help to minister to children and provide support. The Guatemala 2015 trip will take place from March 14 to March 23, a ten-day trip that will change lives. The cost is $2250 per person, but Orphan Outreach says that cost should not frighten volunteers off because most people are able to raise their support for the trip. You can make a difference. Just take a leap of faith. Pray that God will send enough volunteers to Orphan Outreach, and that the March 2015 Guatemala trip will be a success. For information on how to volunteer, click here.

Good news regarding Ebola

Mission Network News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 5:00am
Liberia (GAiN) -- Editor's Note: Finally, some GOOD news about the Ebola crisis in West Africa. The World Health Organization has declared both Senegal and Nigeria free of Ebola transmission. Things remain serious in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, but health workers are daring to hope. What follows is a recent post from Global Aid Network's Cru partners in Liberia:

It seems the enemy force has not only succeeded in paralyzing our economy and causing an untold suffering to people who were gradually rebuilding their lives after fourteen years of armed conflict. The virus also subjected the entire country to fear and uncertainty regarding who would be hit next. The government, therefore, instituted emergency measures, such as declaring a state of emergency, imposing a curfew, closure of public and private institutions of learning, and requesting nonessential government staff to remain home for a period of ninety days to limit the spread of the virus. Despite these stringent measures, the virus has killed about 2,316 persons in Liberia as of October 14. There is a saying that “when one door closes, God opens another.” Our primary environment for doing ministry is university campuses. Therefore, the closure of these campuses indefinitely is very frustrating. However, the students accepted the situation and quickly saw the open doors for ministry opportunity in the midst of the Ebola virus epidemic. The first door of opportunity was a “Mobile Prayer Chain.” Two leading mobile phone companies offered promotions offering periods of free calling. So, five students used this opportunity to great advantage. They prayed on their cell phones for one hour after every two days. Right now, this mobile prayer chain has grown from 5 to 65 students into groups of at least 5 students per group. “My involvement in this mobile chain hasn’t only improved my prayer life, but I have learned to pray strategically using Scriptures,” said Fatu, a student at the University of Liberia. The second door of opportunity is a campaign called “Ebola kills, Jesus heals.” This campaign is an ongoing community effort to stop the spread of the virus using two primary approaches: Public Service Training -- The usage of PowerPoint presentations and video clips of the virus with emphasis on the cause, how it kills and preventive measures. The PowerPoint presentation transitions from the negative effect “Ebola kills” to the gospel message “Jesus heals,” providing the audience the opportunity to make decisions for Christ. This campaign started on the 7th of August and ended on the 12th due to the imposition of a night curfew. However, 266 people watched the presentation, and 20 prayed to receive the gift of salvation!

Community Task Force Training -- Every community has set up a task force to fight against the spread of the virus. Two communities invited us to help train their task force with focus on the history of Ebola, the cause, preventive measures, contact tracing, the usage of the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), and the gospel presentation. This training brought together 110 participants. Thirty-two persons made decisions for Christ. The third Door of Opportunity provides students the ability to help with ongoing distribution of medical and food supplies in several places, including hospitals with Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), quarantined communities, and disabled communities. The humanitarian aid supplied was provided by our major donor, GAiN International, based in Plano, Texas, USA. The fourth door of opportunity involves the “In Touch Messenger.” This device contains the New Testament Bible and prerecorded inspirational messages by Rev. Charles Stanley. Our primary focus is to give each device to an Ebola survivor to help him or her understand that if no one will accept them as they get reintegrated into communities, Jesus will. On the 7th of October, 21 Ebola survivors were discharged from Ebola Treatment Unit at E.L.W.A. Each received a copy of the device. It is so unfortunate that there is not much publicity regarding Ebola survivors being discharged from ETUs across the country. There are more than 500 confirmed cases in which infected people have survived. It is even more frustrating that few resources exist to help survivors rejoin their communities after losing almost everything during their misfortune. As students make follow-up visits in communities where survivors have returned, it is so disheartening to note that some return to empty homes with no mattress, food, clothes, or other basic necessities. Fortunately, the students have begun distributing humanitarian aid to survivors, and include the In Touch Messenger. By meeting the physical and spiritual needs of Ebola victims, and by equipping communities to confront the Ebola crisis, the name of Christ is shining brightly in the darkness. Please continue to pray. Please continue to share.

Joko Widodo: a sign of hope?

Mission Network News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 5:00am

Indonesia (MNN) -- What emotions rise to the surface when a new president takes office in your country? Perhaps hope and optimism shine brightly, or maybe the public's reaction is more like a mix of frustration and anger. In Muslim-dominate Indonesia, many evangelical Christian communities are reacting positively to their new President, Joko Widodo. "Every Christian that I know in Indonesia is feeling relief and delight that this man becomes their new leader," shares Bruce Allen of Forgotten Missionaries International (FMI). Joko Widodo: a brief summary Nicknamed "Jokowi", 53-year-old Joko Widodo made history a week ago as he was sworn into office as Indonesia's first president not to have a background in politics or military service. He grew up in the slums of Java and rose quickly from the position of mayor to president. On Sunday, Joko Widodo made history again by choosing the country's first female Foreign Minister. Allen explains why you should care about Indonesia's new president in the full interview.

Widodo is not only charting new territory in the realm of politics, he's setting a new standard in the realm of religion, too. During his first speech to Parliament last week, Joko Widodo acknowledged the Christians who were present. "All the previous presidents, in that opening address to Parliament, have given the traditional Muslim greeting," Allen explains. "Joko Widodo said that traditional Muslim greeting, but then he also said, 'I want to greet my Christian countrymen, and so I also say 'God bless you' and 'greetings in peace' to the Christians." National Gospel workers helped by FMI hope to see more efforts like these to extend kindness and inclusion to Indonesian Christians. Allen says, "[Widodo is] making very serious overtures to say, 'I'm a Muslim, but I am a leader of all the people.'" Religious freedom in Indonesia Christians are one of the six religions protected by Indonesian law. However, Allen says, those legally-protected freedoms are often infringed upon in the world's largest Muslim-dominate nation. "Many things tilt in favor of the Muslims," says Allen. "If there is opposition to Christian outreach locally, or if someone is attacking a church or a pastor, the local police department--probably led by a Muslim--[says], 'We'll get to that in a few hours.' "There are still abuses toward Christians, even though they are legally protected."

Indonesian believers hope Joko Widodo's tolerance and acceptance of religious minorities will change this persistent reality. "They're looking for fewer restrictions; they're looking for many changes that will show that Indonesia is much more open," states Allen. In light of the growing ISIS caliphate, pray that other Islamic nations will follow Indonesia's example, as set forth by its new president. "Right now, our news is being dominated by so much bad news about the Muslim world, especially with ISIS running rampant," Allen says. "Here is the world's largest, Muslim-dominate country turning its back on ISIS, so to speak, and saying, 'We welcome the contribution that Christians are having in this country.'"

Women In Leadership: Part One

Mission Network News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 5:00am

International (MNN) -- Putting women in leadership has been a controversial subject since the turn of the century, both in sacred and secular circles. Over the next few days, MNN will investigate the issue as it relates to global missions. The goal of this mini-series is not to debate or choose a side (i.e. women leaders are better than men leaders, or vice-versa). Instead, these reports explore the advantages and disadvantages of women in leadership roles, as well as ministry opportunities and challenges the issue presents. "We've got to expand [our] investing in women," Joe Handley of Asian Access (A2) states boldly. "It's important that we empower and platform people from any walk of life. "It doesn't matter if they're women or young people, [a] different ethnic group, whatever; we need to empower [people] to expand the Kingdom." Empowering women leaders A2's mission is to develop and empower national church leaders who can share the Gospel and make disciples in Asia. While that has traditionally involved training men in leadership skills, A2 has been "branching out" in recent years to include women. Learn more about A2's ministry here. "We're not doing it big-scale yet," Handley clarifies, "but we have a vision to 'ramp that up' in the future."

In one Asian nation, unnamed for security reasons, A2 has been training women in leadership skills for several years. "The results have been profound," says Handley. "They bring together women four times a year for an intense, deep dive with Jesus, and an intense, deep dive with 'how do you grow as a leader?'" At the quarterly retreat, women in this country are mentored by other female leaders and taught how to develop the leadership skills God has gifted them with. "The six of us attending A2 from our church are all cell group leaders, and we have changed," says one participant in a written testimony. "Through A2, we have learned that the Christian life is not just about performance or service, but rather our personal relationship with God. We want to help our brothers and sisters deepen their relationships with Jesus as ours have deepened." Please pray for A2 as they develop this area of ministry. "We know that we're just scratching the surface," Handley admits. "We need a lot more work in this area." Tomorrow, we'll explore the advantages and disadvantages of placing women in leadership with Kӓrin Primuth, the only female member of A2's Board of Directors, and Wendy Wilson, leader of the Women's Development Track for Missio Nexus. In the Comments section below, please let us know what you think: should women be placed in leadership roles? Why or why not?

Call to Advocacy: International Religious Freedom

Mission Network News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 5:00am

(Image captured from VOM Canada video footage)

USA (USCIRF/MNN) -- Did you know that October 27 was International Religious Freedom Day? If you didn't, you're not alone. The commemoration of the 16th anniversary of the passage of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (IRFA) went unremarked by most mainstream media. It also slipped under the radars of religious watchdog groups. Open Doors USA president and CEO David Curry says, "It's fair to say that our government hasn't really been focused as it should be on religious freedom around the world. It's becoming the centerpiece of some of the main issues we're facing." How do politics fit into religious causes? Curry explains, "Because the West has overlooked the importance of religious freedom, we have issues with groups like the Islamic State, Boko Haram in Nigeria, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt." You might be wondering, "What does this have to do with me?" Everything. Religious freedom is part of the American identity as a free nation. It's also central to peace and stability worldwide. "When we look back at the passage of the International Religious Freedom Act, which was what this day (October 27) was meant to celebrate, it really was meant to highlight that we, as the American people, have an interest in religious freedom. Where there's religious freedom, it's a bellwether of how everything else is going to go within civil society." By enacting IRFA, Congress and the President recognized that religious freedom matters. Among its provisions, IRFA created an international religious freedom office in the State Department and the U.S. Commission on Intentional Religious Freedom (USCIRF). The USCIRF is a bipartisan entity tasked with monitoring religious freedom worldwide and making policy recommendations to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress. According to information from the USCIRF in the  2014 Annual Report, 8 nations were recommended to the State Department’s existing list of “countries of particular concern,” or CPCs, including: EgyptIraqNigeriaPakistanSyriaTajikistan,Turkmenistan, and Vietnam. (The State Department subsequently designated Turkmenistan a CPC.) USCIRF also recommended that the following countries be re-designated as CPCs: BurmaChina, EritreaIranNorth KoreaSaudi ArabiaSudan, and Uzbekistan. Curry notes that "Open Doors is focused on trying to maintain freedom for Christians around the world--get them the Bibles and the supplies they need. I think it's important, within the general realm as well, that people have the freedom to choose what they want to believe and how they want to worship." Since that's oppressed on pain of death in many of the CPCs, two things need to happen: Speak up about the issues, and pray. "This Saturday, there's a simulcast where we're going to be interviewing persecuted believers from around the world," says Curry. "It's going to be an interactive event. It's going to be really powerful. There also is an event for churches and groups on Sunday, the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church." Even as conditions deteriorate for Christians in areas where the Islamic State group has hold or Boko Haram menaces, here's what persecuted believers are asking: "Pray for us to stand strong. Don't pray that the persecution goes away or that we have an easy life." Believers want to stand strong and share their faith in the midst of difficulties, says Curry. Plus, "They want to know that they're not alone, that there are other believers praying for them and caring for them."

With a week left to the general election, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett and his opponent Tom Wolf have picked up the pace of their campaigns. Corbett made a couple of appearances in the central part of the state yesterday continuing his attack on Wolf, telling supporters that if elected, Wolf would have to raise taxes on the state’s middle class just to fulfill his campaign promises. Meanwhile, Wolf was in Pittsburgh yesterday with a special guest, former president Bill Clinton who told an audience there that Wolf is the candidate to unite Pennsylvanians, not to divide them.
