Sponsored Walk For Bible Translation
8th to 10th April 2013: Wales, UK
Mary Jones walked 26 miles barefoot through the Welsh Hills in the UK to buy a Bible. The story of her saving for 4 years and walking such a distance is famed to have sparked the beginning of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Several TWFTW members and friends are retracing her steps to raise funds for Bible Translation. Funds raised will help others like Mary, to have a Bible translated into the language God gave them. There are still almost 2000 languages without any Scripture, which represents about 350 million people.
Please consider donating towards this worthy cause to make God's Word available to unreached people groups. TWFTW is currently working to bring God's word to 65 different language groups. Please help us to speed up the process.
- £1 per mile (£26) can help support a translator for 1 week.
- £2 per mile (£52) can help sponsor training costs for a translator. (Total cost of training per student per year is £310, including accommodation for 1 month)
- £10 per mile (£260) can fund 2 part-time literacy teachers for one year.
Any other amount great or small will be appreciated and used towards Bible translation.
Please consider to sponsor those walking the 26 miles: Daniel and Julia Funnell, Regine, Jasmin and Faizah Koroma and friends, Els MacDonald-Taylor and Ursula Ambrose; Barry Funnell will be hand cycling the route via tarred roads, which is 28 miles in total.
