Hello Allume friends! We are so excited to explore “building bridges” with you! Our particular passion at Seed Company is to see more lives transformed through Bible translation. In many ways, Bible translation is like a bridge — God’s Word brings His people together. Together, we can build bridges and end Bible poverty.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. — John 1:14 (ESV)
As we pray and meditate upon God’s Word, our perspective is transformed. We begin to see things anew. We start to realize where and how we can be bridges and light.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. — John 1:5 (NLT)
Join us in the Prayer Room during the Allume Conference. Experience the presence of God and the power of prayer. Come to the Prayer Room to relax and meditate upon God’s call. Come with expectation to be filled with the Spirit as you meditate on His Word. Pray with — and for — your fellow bridge-builders. Hear His voice. Be transformed by His love. Commit to making a difference. We will be praying for you to be empowered to take action for God’s purposes. And we joyfully invite you to learn more about building bridges for the Bibleless.
Has God called you to wild obedience?
We’ve learned a lot from the people we serve — people like the Yawa (Yawa woman pictured above). The Yawa live on a remote Pacific island. Generations of Yawa have been subject to a traditional, animistic religion. Can you imagine? But after years of perseverance and dependence upon God, the Yawa can read God’s Word for themselves! They are pursuing a relationship with Jesus through His Word.
Today more than 1 billion people are without God’s Word. But like the Yawa, as we encounter His unfathomable love for us, our hearts develop a passion for people groups Jesus came to save. People who have families. People who belong to neighborhoods. Even strangers. We see their faces. We hear their voices. We feel their hunger. And we experience God’s call to serve — a call to wild obedience.
No matter what your particular passion is, living with wild obedience will change your life — and influence the lives of others! Until we see each other in August, may our hearts be prepared for what is sure to be an amazing God-glorifying gathering.
