“Love is the root of missions; sacrifice is the fruit of missions.” —Hudson Taylor
Do unreached people groups seem far away? Does helping with Bible translation seem out of your reach?
At EXPLORE ABT you will get a taste of how languages work and how to learn them. Hear a Bible translator's stories. Debate the concept of indigenous churches. And have your vision for the nations refreshed!
Lord willing, this event will take place Friday and Saturday, May 25-26. Please pray about joining us those 2 days. We would be honored to have you.
NOTE - Registration ends May 1st.
"I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life." —Psalm 119:93
"True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant. It clothes the naked, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it seeks those who are lost, it becomes all things to all people." —Menno Simons
The next 2 days ABT will be presenting at Charity Missions Conference. This includes both a booth and a Breakout Session, given on Friday and Saturday at 3:00 pm. If you are at this event please stop by our booth—we would love to connect with you.
Below is the description of our Breakout Session:
Our website introduces ABT’s vision and purpose—what ABT is. To further clarify ABT’s function, let’s now look at what ABT is not.
A guiding principle for ABT is that we are neither the Church nor a church. We are committed to remaining a parachurch organization. The “para” in parachurch indicates “alongside” or “beside.” ABT serves the church’s mission by working alongside local churches who are willing to send their members into the field.
“God gave everyone the capacity to communicate His message.” —Mark Cain
Today the ABT Exec Team had the privilege of visiting several of our members-in-training at Wayumi. This week-long course provides a thorough introduction to the big picture of church planting and Bible translation and is taught by instructors who bring years worth of experience from the field to the classroom.
“Translation needs to be at the heart of the way we use and think about language. It reveals and relishes difference while also bridging it. It recognizes that Babel was as much a blessing as a curse." —Matthew Reynolds
Into the Jungle!
Join us in praying today and over the next several days as an *ABT member and his son, along with several other men, head into the *jungles to learn more about a *couple specific language groups. With several flights, long boat rides, and around a hundred miles of hiking ahead of them, they depend on God for health, strength and protection. Pray also for divinely orchestrated meetings that would enable the Word to run swiftly and be glorified.
