As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of my best sources of inspiration for topics to post about can be found in my mail box.
I received a solicitation in the mail from an organization called Wycliffe Associates, which was founded in 1967 to "support and encourage Bible translators."
According to this organization, there are several hundred Bible translators living in isolation on the island nation of Papua New Guinea. These translators "must cope with... treacherous landscapes, hazardous mountain trails, earthquakes, and 400 inches of rain per year! And they must work for years to complete a translation. How do they do it?"
"Obviously by the prayers and support of Christians. But there is one tool that has probably done more to keep them on the field than any other: the airplane. I am writing because the use of that tool is now threatened. The reason is "avgas," aviation fuel, is getting scarce and expensive. And the situation is getting worse, now affecting more than 20 piston-driven aircraft - the primary aircraft that serves these Bible translators in remote locations."
The answer to their prayers is a new aircraft called the KODIAK, which unlike the Cessnas currently in use, can be fueled with jet fuel rather than avgas. But in order to purchase a KODIAK, the Wycliffe Associates need to raise $880,000 as soon as possible or else there might be "a delay of perhaps years when Bibleless people will have the Word of God."
Hurry up and donate now, or else the omnipotent and omniscient Creator of the Universe will be unable to have its truth revealed to the last few redoubts of pagan heathenism left in the world.
