“The primary purpose of reading the Bible is not to know the Bible but to know God.” James Merritt
Imagine not being able to read. Imagine your life without a Bible. For some in our world these are reality. Spring Creek wants to make a difference for a large people group in Southeast Asia by providing the funds to establish a written language and translate the Bible books of Mark and Luke.
In the video below Mary from the Seed Company describes this group:
“Even though they were the first inhabitants of their country, the “Timber” people have been pushed around and abused by the majority people group, especially in the last 100 years. The very name the majority gave them is a disparaging term that means “slave”.
As Mary said, “God wants to give the Timber people a voice. He wants to give them a new identity. He wants to give them a new name - no longer slave but children of God. Now imagine someday seeing dear ones from the Timber people that are in heaven because you played a part in helping them read God’s word, and have the message of love and hope in their language for the first time.”
We are collaborating with Seed Company to help the Timber people by developing their written language, and the translation of the Book of Mark and Luke. This project is expected to cost $140,000 and will include an audio version, which will be used in a modern movie of the Book of Luke.
