• man reading the Bible

$35 pays for a verse and a lot more. It pays for all the costs of translating a verse, flying people in to check it, attending seminars to help translators do it well — even printing it and getting it to the people. It also provides for literacy materials, so people can read God’s Word and take notes. And it funds Bible lessons, so they can understand it clearly. $35 covers everything but the chocolate. So I guess if chocolate is as important to you as it is to us, you could give $36 a verse.

And tribal churches need more than Bibles translated. They need Bible lessons that help them understand the God they never knew about, and literacy materials to enable them learn to read their own language for the first time. All of which must be printed, transported and distributed.

  • $35 provides for a verse.
  • $500 would pay to translate a book the size of 3 John
  • $1k would translate an average chapter
  • $5k translates a book the size of Galatians

How You’ll Be Helping

Ethnos estimates that it takes 15 years and $277,000 from the time a work starts until a Bible is printed. That works out to about $35 a verse. Will you sponsor a verse or two, or ten? Perhaps you could choose a chapter or even a book to sponsor. All for only $35 a verse.
