Our partners down under – Wycliffe Australia – have just released their latest magazine Wycliffe Today. Head over to their website to flick through and see some of the projects they are supporting for the 60th anniversary, read about Lynnette Oates, a Wycliffe pioneer, and get a glimpse into the impact of literacy in the Solomon Islands.
Particularly moving in this edition is the artwork reflecting on the need for Jesus’ forgiveness in Australia, a society still in need of restoration. It’s a message we can all take to heart at Easter, as we look to the cross:
“Virtually every society impacted by Bible Translation needs forgiveness for past wrongs inflicted on them by other cultures. Justice is needed. Repentance is needed. Forgiveness is needed. As Bible translators our joy is in knowing that as people gain access to God’s revealed Word in their own Heart Language they will find it easier to understand and experience the liberating reality of forgiveness available through Jesus’ sacrificial death on Calvary’s cross.
“This Easter, will you join with us at Wycliffe in reaffirming our commitment to keep on doing all it takes to bring Jesus’ message of forgiveness and reconciliation to language groups still without the Scriptures.”
