advent - day 11

I worked with The Seed Company for one wonderful year, as a graphic designer at their HQ in Arlington, TX. The Seed Company is not, as the name may seem to suggest, in the agricultural industry. They are a Bible translation organization. They have a unique angle which allows for accelerated Bible translation. The Seed Company trains native speakers of Bibleless languages (i.e. a language which the Bible has not yet been translated into) to translate the Bible. Where there are related languages, The Seed Company sets up workshops for the translators to learn and translate together. I don't have the stats, but I know that they have been responsible for a large percentage of the translation projects started and completed in the past 17 years. Their daily prayer focus is here:

[As an aside, I just want to point out that there is still need for western translators. The Seed Company's method, which is highly effective, only works for people groups in which believers already exist.]

EDIT: I just realized that The Seed Company's prayer guide runs Monday through Friday, and today is Saturday. I'm going to pray for yesterday's (Dec 10) people group.
