Literacy as Mediator

While Wycliffe's heart beats to the rhythm of providing access to Scriptures for all people in the language and form they understand best, the music that accompanies this beat expands beyond a single task.

One the one hand, there are all the things that God's Word accomplishes in the hearts of individuals and communities as God's Truth becomes known. Disciples are made who in turn become disciple-makers and the church is born again and again.

On the other hand, there is literacy and mother-tongue first education, and all that comes with this empowering of people.

And God, by his plan and for his purposes, chooses to do this work through us. In us. With us.
