To creatively link Canadians in the task of equipping nationals to complete 250 life-changing Bible translation and literacy programs, impacting 50 million people in the least reached areas of the world.
Every child of God deserves to experience His Word in their own language. Language is key to identity, self-expression, and community. Yet, for many of the world’s minority people groups, language barriers lock them into a life of poverty, isolation, and damaged dignity. 793 million adults around the world cannot read or write to a functional level in any language. This literacy deficit hinders them from accessing education, healthcare, and information crucial for social and economic development. Heart language is even more important when communicating the great love and teachings of Jesus. More than 4,000 language communities have no access to the Bible in their own language, and have never heard the gospel in a way they clearly understand. OneBook is working towards a world where everyone can experience the transforming power of God’s Word in their own language.
