Ministry Vehicle Fund, Ethiopia and Sierra Leone

2021–2023 Mission Grant 22 — $70,000

group of about 25 people standing outside holding bookletsLiteracy programs funded by Lutheran Bible Translators generally have 400–900 students. As Scripture is translated into the local languages, both the young and old need to be taught how to read it.

Lutheran Bible Translators (LBT) uses literacy programs within the local language communities to give people the skills to read the newly translated Bible which results in a personal relationship with God. When they can read God’s Word in their local or heart language, they know that God speaks their language and hears their prayers. Local personnel in Ethiopia and Sierra Leone, identified as partners with LBT, help teach their people. The long distances between the language communities have treacherous and hazardous terrain. The money from this grant will help purchase robust, reliable vehicles. Trainers will be able to travel to God’s people who are waiting for the opportunity to learn to read the saving words of the Gospel in their heart language. This will impact multiple language groups in both countries.
