Wycliffe evening conference





David Gilchrist is Wycliffe's Mobilisation Co-ordinator for Scotland.
He writes:

"By 2025, together with partners worldwide, we aim to see a Bible translation programme begun in all the remaining languages that need one."

David extends a warm invitation to the local Christian churches and community to an Inverness evening conference -

'Word for all - let's finish it"


Speakers:
Drs. Ronnie and Margaret Sim speaking about training Africans for Bible Translation in Kenya; now with Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology.
The couple with their young family went out from Inverness Baptist Church 32 years ago.
Prior to leaving for Africa, Ronnie was a science teacher at Glenurquhart Secondary School, whilst Margaret worked with the forerunner to  the HIE, the Highlands and Islands Development Board.


Ronnie and Margaret

Venue/Date/Time:

Wednesday 19th September

Castle Street Baptist Church
Castle Street
INVERNESS

7.30pm till 9.30pm

Ronnie and Margaret left Inverness with their young family 32 years ago to travel to Africa with Wycliffe; they have lived there since and pioneered a programme to train native Africans in the skills of Bible translation. Christians Together conducted a short interview with Ronnie, and discovered that God is putting a vision into the hearts of Christians in Africa to take the Gospel back to the Western countries that first took it to them.

Ronnie Sim, congratulations on 32 years serving the Lord in Africa.
Much more rewarding than trying to get science into the heads of us your ungrateful pupils in the Glen. I would have been interested to hear you talk of your work. However I am working in Romania these days. God Bless you both for your committment, Trish Robertson [aka Pat Mackenzie - 1974 Cannich )]
