The Faith in the Workplace Connect Group is hosting an evening with Dr Barry Funnell, a longstanding translation consultant working with The Word for the World. Barry travels the world numerous each year checking bible translation work and meeting sometimes very remote communities.
The Word for the World aims to bring God's Word (The Bible) to all people in their heart language. Out of the worlds 7,000 languages, there are over 2000 languages without any of the bible translated. Their goal is to complete 500 first time translations by 2050.
Barry will lead a short devotional, followed by his testimony and then talk about his work as a translation consultant with The Word for The World Bible translators. We will also be able to have some time for questions at the end.
Daniel Davies who co-leads the Faith in the Workplace Connect Group, has recently taken on the role of UK CEO for the charity.
