Nigeria: a call to serve

Taken from http://wycliffe.org.uk/blog/2013/04/nigeria-a-call-to-serve/

Nigeria: Africa’s most populous and most linguistically diverse nation. And, not surprisingly, its the home of one of the greatest translation needs in the world.

Not only that, but they live with that fear day-to-day without the comfort and hope that the Scriptures provide because, of Nigeria’s more-than-500 languages, only 20 have a complete Bible.

If you think that you could serve the brave Bibleless Christians of Nigeria, and if you want many more Nigerians come to know the truth revealed in God’s word, you could be part of God’s plan for that nation. And you don’t need to be a Bible translator or a linguist – you just need a willing heart.

Wycliffe is currently looking for someone to serve Bible translation in Nigeria as the director’s assistant for a partner organisation there. This role runs from May this year to February 2014. You would be responsible for enabling the director to manage and lead a multinational team of Wycliffe workers.

If you think that God might be calling you to step out of your comfort zone and serve his people in Nigeria, this is your call. If you are looking to see if mission overseas is for you, this could be the short-term role for you. Contact us.

Please pray with us that God would provide the right person in good time to fill this role.
