Wycliffe Associates Stepping Up Support for Bible Translation in War-Ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo

Democratic Republic of Congo Wycliffe Associates, an international organization that involves people in the acceleration of Bible translation efforts, is raising funds to accelerate the work of Bible translation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)—a Central African nation that has been plagued by civil wars over the past 15 years.

The fighting has resulted in the deaths for more than 5 million people and the displacement of more than 2 million.

Wycliffe Bible Translators

Wycliffe Bible Translators Translators of U.S.-based Wycliffe Associates have launched two Bible translation projects in countries where evangelism, or even reading a Bible, is forbidden.

Wycliffe CEO Bruce Smith said among the nations targeted by his organization was at least one predominately Muslim country with a strongly Islamic government, where he claimed Christians face persecution, even from family members and neighbors.
