By 2023, we hope the journey will have begun with 40 Gateway Languages of the Muslim World. Within six months of beginning translation in a new language, we are able to release Scripture stories that introduce God’s promised blessing in Abraham. We consider Scripture Engagement and Reconciliation to be key to the design and success of our projects. As we develop a contextualized strategy to engage a Gateway Cluster, specialized members of our team walk alongside translators and first-responders to create events where engagement with our Scripture Resources is natural and appropriate.
Isa said, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Isa had done for him.
There are 447 known distinct Muslim language groups. A gateway language is a language of wider communication through which second-language speakers of that language can gain access to content and translate it into their own language.
Currently, there are 44 known gateway languages. We are working to translate our Scripture products into all 44 gateway languages as a first step to reaching into the entire Muslim world.
The Love of God is for ALL people.
Throughout the world, many traditional resources are rejected by Muslim people simply because they are not friendly or are distasteful to them because they were not produced with Muslim culture in mind.
There is a need for Scripture resources which can help descendants of Abraham to better understand the benefits of God's covenant with Abraham and how to release those benefits for one's own life, his family, and community.
Engaging Worlds empowers unreached Muslim people groups to release Abraham’s blessing in their communities.
To make the Word of God available to those whom God loves, even the unloveable.
We must not insist that the rest of the world come to God on our terms.
