There’s much work to be done, 3,712 languages are in need of translation.

We have a roadmap, a process, and the tools in place to help realize this vision to help millions of people access the Word of God in their heart language.


Today, there are one billion people on the planet trapped in the darkness of Bible poverty. There are more than 3,800 language groups with little or no access to Scripture. 2,000 of those don’t have a single verse of Scripture in the language they best understand. Our generation gets to change that. The translators are in place. The strategy is in place. And now, you can take your place…

Hundreds of chaplains nationwide are requesting our Military Bibles for soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines. And because we’re working through the Navigators, with staff on more than 200 military bases in 30 states, you can be sure the Bibles you send will get where they’re needed most.

Of the 7,000+ languages spoken around the world today, approximately 3,712 have little or no Scripture. We are working to change this reality.
