An ACTION missionary since 2003, Wayne Mac Leod has been publishing a variety of Bible study books for distribution to Christian workers in over 40 countries. Wayne shared about some translation projects in a recent update:
“We have three key projects nearing completion. In January I sent funds to Pakistan for the translation and printing of 1,000 copies of the Urdu translation of ‘Matthew, Mark and Luke (volume 2)’. Distribution of these books in now underway.
“Also in January funds were sent to Myanmar for the translation and printing of 1,000 copies of ‘Our God Reigns, A Practical Look at the Doctrine of the Sovereignty of God’ in the Burmese language. These books are going to print now.
“Just this week funds were sent to Tanzania for the printing of 1,200 copies of the Swahili translation of ‘Someone Else’s Faith, Is the Faith You Profess Really Yours?’
“We will reach over 3,200 people in Pakistan, Myanmar and Tanzania in the coming months with these three books.
“Three other books are being translated now and we trust will be ready for print and distribution in the coming months. ‘How Can I Be Sure? How To Be Sure of Your Salvation’ is being translated into Spanish in Cuba. The plan is to print 1,000 copies of this in Cuba for distribution.
“‘Overcoming Temptation, How Jesus Overcame the Temptations of the Devil in Luke 4:1-13’ is being translated into Tamil. This is the first book to be translated into this language. This will be distributed in India.
“‘Matthew, Mark and Luke (volume 2)’ is being translated into Spanish in Cuba. This will be added to my Spanish mailing list and shipped to Spanish speaking contacts in a number of countries.
“As most of those who receive copies of these books could never afford them, I am responsible for the complete cost of translation and printing books in these countries. I am often amazed to see how the Lord provides to make this possible.”
