Pat and Melenda Edmiston are missionaries with Wycliffe – Partners in Bible Translation, a nondenominational mission organization dedicated to translating the Scriptures and teaching people to read and write in their own language.

The story of the 5 loaves and 2 fish doesn’t have to be a miracle only witnessed in the Scriptures. Every day, we have the opportunity to participate in God’s provision for the world. We give what we have, and he is faithful to bless and multiply it in his hands.

When you partner with us, you are:

Equipping believers with God’s Word
Transforming lives for eternity
Growing the kingdom of God + multiplying churches

1.5 billion people still don’t have the full Bible in their first language. Imagine what’s possible with Scripture that’s accurate and speaks to their hearts.

Melenda and I want to thank you for your faithful gifts over the past few months. They have been a true blessing in these uncertain times. You can be sure that we continue to be faithful to our calling in seeing God’s Word translated into new languages and transforming lives. This is what Dahn, a fellow believer in Southeast Asia, had to say:

“I live in a rural area where there is no church. A pastor visits regularly, but because of Covid-19 we have not seen him much. 

“During this time, people in my village have abandoned their former way of life and participate in evil practices, such as drinking to get drunk, burning charms, and worshipping ancestors. But God’s Word helps me walk in the path of righteousness. As I study the Bible, day by day my faith is strengthened and my heart is softened. Like it says in Proverbs 2:20, I pray to walk in the way of goodness.”

Pray more people in remote areas of Southeast Asia will hear His Word in their heart language and walk away from their evil practices and turn to the paths of righteousness.

In His Love,

Pat & Mel
