We believe the day will come – in our lifetime – when there is no people group left without access to God’s Word in their own language! Join us in bringing this day to pass.
Reaching the Unreached
Rhema for the Nations (RFN) is a Christian ministry that has been dedicated to translating the Bible for unreached and unengaged people groups in their own heart language for the past 25 years. Alongside partnering ministries, RFN translates Bible stories and complete Old and New Testaments in an audio format for these people groups. In addition to Scripture translation, RFN also engages with people groups through teaching, discipleship, and church planting. You can join us as giving partners by donating today!
Have no Scripture
Our mission is to see these remaining languages have a church planted and the Bible translated in a way that they can understand. Read about why we focus on audio rather than written Bible translations here.
“even though I was worshiping evil spirits and spending a lot of money on both demigods and doctors, nothing helped my wife’s illness improve. I began crying out over my wife’s sickness, thinking nobody heard. But there is an Almighty God who hears all people cry, and He heard my prayers and began to work on my wife’s behalf…”
As the Coronavirus has hampered translation work in many countries, our compassionate teams were not deterred. They recently became the hands and feet of Jesus in India, reaching out and serving their neighbors in practical ways to those in need and to area pastors.
Where Do We Work?
Our goal and mission go beyond translating the Scriptures. We aim to see a self-sufficient church planted among each unreached people group that is deeply rooted in God’s Word. This is why, in addition to Bible translation, our teams also engage with unreached communities through teaching, discipling, church planting, and more.
Rhema for the Nations also has a variety of outreach ministries that meet the physical needs of the people we engage with. These ministries include hospitals, orphanages, schools, and women’s outreach.
“I was reading the Bible in languages that I could understand, but could not get them into my mind very clearly. One day I came across a Pardhan New Testament that has been translated by Rhema for the Nation. I felt very happy to read Bible in my own language and it is so clear and understandable. I believe that this translation will bring people of my community to know the Real God. I thank Rhema for the Nations and all the supporters, who made this possible. Please do pray for me.“
