Have you heard the old acronym, TEAM?: Together, Everyone Achieves More. That’s the idea behind a collaborative Bible translation effort in Southeast Asia.

In one country, unnamed for security purposes, “there is a Christian minority presence, and they’re very enthusiastic about [getting] God’s Word in their language,” Wycliffe USA’s Mark Taber says.

“But there are large populations that are resistant to the Gospel.”

There may be opposition, but the Lord is working through His people. “This is an amazing period in history; we’re seeing the Holy Spirit move in a way that, in my 40 years on the field, I’ve never seen happen before,” Taber says.

“We’re seeing this unprecedented collaboration in Bible translation and synergy of effort.”
