Today about 340 million people do not have any Scripture in their language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best. To make this vision a reality, Wycliffe also focuses on community development, literacy development, and church partnerships.
Ramon and Deborah are missionaries to a tribe in Mexico that Ecclesia supports each month. We are so excited about the work that they are doing to translate the Bible into a tribal language there.
Ecclesia reaches out to local prisoners at a jail right here in West Texas. Every Friday evening we enter the jail and lead interactive Bible study discussions with prisoners. The leader of this outreach is Steven Bailey, a man with a passion to share Jesus with those who are very aware of their need for Him.
Exodus Prison Ministry here in West Texas is dedicated to assisting prison chaplains and families of inmates and ex-offenders by providing Christian literature to specialized support services for people impacted by prison. The testimonies of prisoners, their families, and chaplains verify that lives are being changed for the glory of the Lord. Several of our students are now pastors and several are active in various special ministries.This ministry operates strictly on donations from individuals and churches. No one receives any salary for services in this mission endeavor. Ecclesia donates Bibles and Christian books on a regular basis, and we are proud to partner with Exodus Prison Ministries in their endeavor to take the Word into prisons throughout the United States.
