Wycliffe Global Alliance and Missiology
Wycliffe Global Alliance’s interest in missiology is key to our participation in the missio Dei (the mission of God). Missiology’s contribution to the Bible translation movement is to analyse its practises, intentions, attitudes, message and methods. This is in keeping with Samuel Escobar’s definition of missiology: “An interdisciplinary approach to understand missionary action [looking] at missionary facts from the perspectives of the biblical sciences, theology, history and the social sciences*.”
From Street Kid to Servant of God
Zoltán Barabás’s life changed when his stepmother gave him a Bible. He learned that God loved him so much that He was willing to die for him. That truth gave Zoltán a purpose in life. He turned away from a life on the streets and began to prepare to serve God in ministry.
Although Zoltán didn’t know how or where he would serve God, God knew. While Zoltán had been preparing himself for ministry, a team had begun… translating the Bible in Rromani languages. They were praying for someone who knew Hungarian and Romanian who could teach the Rromi to use the translated Scriptures. Zoltán had grown up speaking both languages. He was the answer to their prayers.
