A New Amazing Story from Wycliffe
This week Wycliffe published a new video on their home page. You really want to see this one! It’s a short film about one of their teams working on a translation of the New Testament in a remote location in South America, the SAME TEAM that I got to meet and spend time with over Thanksgiving. I am blown away once again at God’s sovereignty and timing. I have no doubt that He is going to do BIG things in this region of Peru, and I am in awe that He is letting us be a part.
Wycliffe Translation House
These Women Rock!
The woman in the above picture standing by the door is a Peruvian lady who has a huge heart for the Bible-less people along the river and is spending her life working to right that injustice. My favorite part of the video is when she shares through tears, “I want these people to know the God that I know.” Once again, watch this video!
The woman to the right, Selmira, is the first Christian in the village and is ON-FIRE for Jesus. I so wish you could all meet her. She is one of the sweetest and most incredible people I’ve ever met. You’ve got to, GOT TO read her story! And if anyone wants to come back with me to Peru, I’ll introduce you to her!
Wycliffe Jungle House
Two months out of the year, the team spends time living among the people who they are translating for. Their house is great, takes three days to get there by boat from the home where most of the translation work takes place in. It was the house our team stayed in over Thanksgiving–the house with no running water, bathrooms, stove, oven, or electricity.

I agree, Abi… God has great things in store! And yes, what a privilege to join Him in that work. Continuing to pray for you, dear sister! ❤
You’re right, Abi. Selmira’s story is a MUST read!! Wow, what a story. I’m glad it was in writing because I have used up way too much data already this month. Don’t want to pay too much overage, so I’ll pass on the video for now. BUT hopefully can watch next month? This is all SO exciting!!
