2) Let Wycliffe give you a Taste Of Translation And Linguistics

You like the idea of missions but you’re not sure about learning another language… Or you like languages and you’ve wondered about Bible translation, language survey, literacy or other language related ministries… Or you think you know what Bible translation is all about… Let Wycliffe show you how to learn language the linguistic way. You will also learn about the many options in Wycliffe. Your stereotypes will disappear as you are actively involved in the latest paradigms of translation that are propelling the Bible translation movement off the charts. TOTAL Vision is a one-week experience in what it’s really like to be involved in a vernacular approach to mission. In one week you’ll know if God is leading you into a language-related ministry. It is offered twice this summer; June 21-26 and July 25-30, 2010, on the campus of Azusa Pacific University, in Azusa, California. The cost is $225 for room and board and all your materials.
