About the Americas

From the warm waters of the Caribbean to the majestic mountains of Chile, millions of people continue to ask for Scripture in their heart language.

Because of widespread bilingualism, Bible translation resources in Spanish (and soon, Portuguese) are making their way to church networks full of people ready to use them. With your support, every people group in Spanish-speaking Latin America that has yet to translate the Bible into their heart language can do just that.
