Over 20 leaders meet in Uruguay for encouragement, collaboration

Uruguay (MNN) — A vital conference is moving Bible translation forward in South America.

Wycliffe Bible Translators says the Leaders Moving Forward event is an important time of collaboration. Leaders involved in the work of Bible translation gather to discuss spiritual and theological themes, as well as missiology, strategic partnerships, and leadership.

Over 20 leaders from five South American countries, representing 13 organizations, met in Uruguay earlier this month for Leaders Moving Forward. They were able to develop strategies and encourage their fellow leaders.

"God is using this time to renew me, speak to me, and confirm my call to be a cross-cultural missionary," said one participant. "I can only say, 'Thank you!'"

Ask God to strengthen the Bible translation movement throughout Latin America as He equips and encourages leaders who attended this event. Pray that fellowship would continue as these leaders work and grow together.

Participants in Leaders Moving Forward hail mainly from the Southern Cone of South America. It's a geographic region encompassing the southernmost areas of South America, and includes Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay.
