“The authority for and ownership of all aspects of the process of Bible translation are returning to the global Church. This foundational transition affects every aspect of Bible translation.” (Tim Jore of Distant Shores Media and Wycliffe Associates)

Distant Shores Media use modern technology to equip and help the global Church to make disciples of every people group. They provide open discipleship resources for every church to use to share the Good News like Open Bible Stories.
They also working together with entire global church through Door 43 translation platform to bring the Good News.
Why do they do it? It is because everyone should have God’s word and adequate discipleship resources in their own languages, for FREE.
In my own experiences in my home country, we do not have adequate discipleship resources in languages the people can understand better than the National language and English. And the need of translating God’s word in each needed language is very high. So far that we know it is at least 400+ languages that need translation of the Gospel.
Both of these organizations are partners in Bible Translation works by partnering with national translators, they help accelerate Bible translation and ensure that we are communicating God’s Word accurately—and powerfully.
They have a project called The unfolding Word. It is an open-licensed Biblical stories, translation training respirces and open-source tools that enable the global Church to do whatever is needed to accelerate the task of translating the Bible into every language.
We read this stories with our kids at home. Our 5 years old daughter can read the stories by herself now. This is FREE resources for you, your families and churches. This is a new tool for bringing the God’s word to the local people’s languages where you planting the church. Part of my assignment is also to help with this project, for now I am working remotely from home to work with a national organization that translating the stories into the national language so that the national translators can use the stories and translate them into each of their people group language. One that is amazing about this resources (beside they are FREE), the national translators can use is offline. They can share the Good News right away with their people as soon as their done translating it.
