Wycliffe Bible Translators
Perhaps you’ve heard of The Wycliffe Bible Translators (Barbados TEAM) before. They are in fact one of seven functional groups of Wycliffe Caribbean, which means that they are collectively a member of Wycliffe International.
Their mission is to assist the Church in making disciples of all nations through Bible Translation.
The Barbados TEAM has embraced “Vision 2025” which emanated in the USA and is supported by Wycliffe TEAMS world-wide. This vision is aimed at seeing a Bible Translation Project started by 2025 in each Language group that needs one.
A recent survey has shown that there are about 6,912 spoken languages/dialects in the world. Of these 414 groups have the entire Bible; 1,068 have only the New Testament; while 873 have at least one book of the Bible. Currently there are 1,410 different projects in progress. Of the remaining 2,737 groups none have any form of translation at all.
Currently there are no Barbadians directly involved in Bible translation. It is time that statistics such as these are changed to ensure that this large number of Bible-less people is reduced.
Wycliffe Bible Translators is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a translation of the Bible in every living language in the world, especially for cultures with little existing Christian influence.
Wycliffe was founded in 1942 by William Cameron Townsend. There are currently branches in over 50 countries. The organization is named after John Wycliffe, the first person to initiate a translation of the whole Bible into Middle English.(Wikipedia)
