Some statistics

When numbers mean more than simple figures

Would you have ever imagined that in the world there are 7,361 languages?

And in how many of these, do you think, the Bible has already been translated?

Sadly only in 3,350 of those (45%).

Of the remaining 55% — though there is an already vast number of projects in action — we have determined that there still is an impelling need to translate God’s Word in more than 2,100 languages (about 29% of the total), that meaning about 180 millions of people without the most precious gift mankind could ever receive!

So, when we open our Bible, let us be grateful... and let us think about those who still don’t have access to it!

This is John 3:16 in more than 2,100 languages

Pray that this blank space may be filled as soon as possible!
