(Undated) — And finally, short-term mission teams are needed to help Bible translation around the world, but not necessarily translating scripture. JAARS , which speeds Bible translation for Wycliffe Bible Translators and others, is sponsoring short-term mission trips to build houses and other like needs. JAARS’ Nard Pugyao (poog-yow) says a team is building a house for a translator in the Philippines this week. “Building a house for her is one of the key things because she has a office. She can plug in her computer and she can have people come in there and help her in the language. So, it’s one of the best things that could ever happen because sometimes you cannot find a place to live in these villages.” Pugyao says they have plenty of opportunities all over the world which helps churches be more involved. “We have some in Honduras, in Africa, in Brazel. If people cannot come overseas they could go to Waxhaw, North Carolina, we have a lot of projects over there. What they do on the home front is also rippling overseas.”
