Yesterday we celebrated the annual Wycliffe World Day of Prayer with our sister organization in Cameroon, CABTAL. This is a time when all the people in all the Wycliffe organizations across the globe pray together.
On November 11, 1933, Wycliffe founders, Cameron Townsend and L.L. Legters, crossed the border from the U.S. into Mexico because God answered prayer. It was a major step forward for Bible translation and also the beginning of what eventually became Wycliffe (now more than 100 Wycliffe Global Alliance organizations) and close partner organization, SIL.

The theme of the Day of Prayer this year is “Serving the God of the Impossible” and the verse that we focused on was “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27 NIV) Below is a video of this verse being read in 9 languages : French, English, and Cameroonian languages Ngombale, Douala, Limbum, Meta, Yemba, Lamnso, and Oku.
