Updated Bible Translations stats! Wow!

So stoked AND excited (there is a difference, lol) to share the following updated stats re: Bible Translation needs throughout the world:

***For the first time ever, that number has dropped below 2,000! The new translation need number is 1,967—worth celebrating!

***For the first time there are more translation programs in progress than there are translation needs.

***With a world population of over 7 billion, the number of people without access to God’s Word in the language that serves them best is now approximately 209 million.

***More people have more access to Scripture than in any previous generation.

***Every generation before us saw the numbers increasing as more and more languages were discovered, and more translation needs were verified. Now that trend has been reversed.

***The finish line is in sight, and the last translator for the last Bible translation program is alive somewhere in the world today.
