Imagine your life without access to the Word of God? How would that shape your view of God? How could you get to know Him if you didn’t know anything about Him? Where would your Hope come from?
Consider this…There are more than 1 billion people without a complete Bible in their heart language. There are more than 165 million people without a single verse of translated Scripture in their heart language. While there are 3,703 languages with a translation project in process, only 672 languages have the complete Word of God available to native speakers.
The illumiNations Alliance, in partnership with the major Bible translation agencies, has set the following scripture goals to achieve by 2033:
95% of the world will have a Full Bible
99.9996% will have a least a NT
100% will have some portions of Scripture
GBI is partnering with the illumiNations Alliance to eradicate Bible poverty by 2033. We are coming alongside other Bible translation agencies with tools and technology to share with that will make these All Access Goals a reality. Through this collaboration, we believe that 95/99.9996/100 will take place.
In addition to collaboration with other Bible Translation organizations, GBI works on several translation projects throughout the world. On some projects, we take the lead and run the projects ourselves. On others, we serve as the technology provider.
