Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a diverse country with over 800 unique languages. More than 300 of those languages still need a Bible translation program started so that people from those communities can have access to God’s life-transforming message.
In October of last year, YWAM launched its global prayer focus, called The Invitation, by highlighting a topic near and dear to the heart of YWAM’s founder, Loren Cunningham. We prayed for the translation and distribution of the Bible. To put it another way, we prayed for an end to Bible poverty. In the months since we prayed, YWAM workers have been responding in many ways.
