A recent message we received from Roger…

“We are passionately promoting the Vision 2025 goal – to have Bible translation project at least started in EVERY language that needs it, world-wide, by the year 2025!  2,000 languages still need to have Bible translation projects started. We want every Christian, every church, to know about Vision 2025, and pray for it. We think it is the most significant missions effort in the history of the church!

Also, we are encouraging people to pray for Indonesia, and for Indonesian Christians. We think it is the KEY country in the whole world for reaching the Vision 2025 goal, and subsequently, the Great Commission!!!

Remember, we started our work in the Nalja tribe when cannibalism was still present! The people still live in a quite primitive fashion, but there arenow over 40 churches, and 6,000 believers in the tribe of 15,000 people, and the FIRST believer was only baptized in 1974!

Vision 2025
TRANSFORMATION.  Vision 2025 is all about transformation – transforming people through God’s Love and Word expressed in their language and culture.
Vision 2025 is a global strategy with the goal of having a written translation of the Bible started for every language and mother tongue around the world by the year 2025.  This is a joint effort by many Christians with a passion for God’s Word and their world.  One of the key participating organizations is Wycliffe Bible Translators (aka “WBT”).
Roger and Suzanne Doriot have worked with Crossworld and with the Nalja tribe of West Papua, Indonesia since 1975.  They believe that with Indonesia having an estimated more than 400 mother tongues without their own Bible, it is quite likely the most critical part of the world if Vision 2025 is to meet its target.  When this need was identified, it was determined that new methods to help penetrate regions such as Indonesia would be required.”Mother Tongue Translation” (aka MTT) was established and is based in part on the principle that people naturally gravitate towards others that originate from the same place as themselves.  MTT has become the overall process of locating, recruiting and training indigenous peoples of a land to translate the Bible into their own mother tongue or those that are similar to their own.  This is the most effective means to expedite Bible translation as it helps to eliminate language and cultural barriers that hinder most traditional missions and translation projects.  This project allows mission specialists like Roger to concentrate their efforts on training and overseeing the ongoing field work.

Roger is also the USA Coordinator of Indonesian Church Relations for Wycliffe Bible Translators, USA and is among the many Vision 2025 “evangelists” that dedicate much of their time to its promotion as well as to recruit, train and mentor new linguistics specialists and translators.

Roger and Suzanne are available to share their passion for Vision 2025 and Bible translation with any local church, group, conference or media outlet.  Please review their travel calendar to see if they will be presenting near you on one of their road tours!  They are willing to present at any event around the world as their schedule permits.

For more information, connect with or contact Roger and Suzanne.  They are particularly interested in meeting and motivating those who will pray faithfully and might consider expressing their faith by using their language skills to translate the Scriptures.
