We want to give thanks and praise to God for the many ways in which He is growing the ministry globally. We now have representation and ministry in more than 25 countries and the number is growing. As we are essentially a resource-based ministry, we need your support and encouragement as our representatives engage in getting the Freedom message into their local countries in the most affordable ways. These include translations into the local languages and local reprints of the English resources to reduce costs. We are very grateful to Monarch Books for reducing (and even waiving) royalties to help us achieve our aim of affordability.
One of the ways in which we want to get the ministry (especially in the developing world e.g. Africa and Asia) to be self-sustainable in the mid-long term is to be able to generate some revenue from the sale of these resources. We are trusting God to meet the requests from these countries to raise funds to print the basic resources (FIC Discipleship Course, Grace Course and the Steps to Freedom) to kick start the work. God has been faithful as He always is. We give thanks that to date, funds have been raised for the Nepali and Romanian translations and printing. There are other requests that have come in and you can click on the links to find out more about our needs in India, Mexico and Nigeria.
Please continue to pray with us that God will continue to raise up people who are passionate about the Freedom message and want to see the message transform lives in their nations. Pray for the different teams that are working on the various translations of our resources into Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Sinhalese, Shona, Swahili and Swedish. Pray also that the teams will be able to find the right words and terminologies that the average Christian can understand, and, that the translated text will be faithful to the intended meaning. We are also asking God to raise up independent editors who can check and verify the translated texts, as well as graphic designers who can do the layout once the texts are approved.
If you are able to offer any assistance in the translation work or would like to know more about what languages these resources are available in, please drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you.
