I know that people all over the world are hurting. But what can I do about it?

More than you think.

And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.…
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Mark 13:10, 31 NV

At YouVersion, we believe that when people have the opportunity to read or listen to the Bible, and then to meditate on what its words mean to them, it can transform their lives. That's why we do what we do. But for those of us who already have a Bible in our language—and perhaps especially for those of us who have more than one version—sometimes we forget how fortunate we are.

More than a billion people don't yet have the Bible in their language.

Even for those who do have a Bible translation in their language, what if they can't read it… because they can't see? Or because of illiteracy? The good news is that visionary Bible societies are already working to get God's Word to as many people as possible, no matter what challenges they face.

In fact, during just the last three months, our generous Bible society partners have introduced 25 new audio versions into the Bible App, each in a different language. In that same time, they've also introduced 23 new Bible texts, in 13 new languages. And here's more good news: You can join them in the world-changing work that they're doing.

Here's what you can do:

Tap the links below to see what Bible translators are doing, and how you can help. Connect with their stories, and then get involved: pray, volunteer, and support the ministries that you feel passionate about.
