Moody Radio

Over the last year, Wycliffe has taken Moody Radio along on trips to Uganda, Panama and Peru, resulting in some terrific stories on the radio and online. Moody got so excited about the work they were seeing that they invited Wycliffe to partner with them in their Fall Funding Campaign to unlock God’s Word for the Least, the Last and the Lost. We were featured in different parts of the country (plus Canada) for three weeks, and it was “all hands on deck” as over 100 of our staff volunteered to answer phones – even me. The results?

  • Over 3000 new donors gave over $550,000 to our work in Panama and Peru.
  • They helped sponsor 34 national translators and purchased over 25,000 Bibles.
  • In addition, matching funds of over $360,000 were given for mother tongue translators in Africa.

As I was volunteering in the Moody call center one morning, I spoke with a woman in Chicago who had been homeless for a while but had just found a job. She told me God was telling her to commit to 12 months of giving $30/month to mother tongue translators in Panama. But could we just hold off until the 20th of the month, when her first check came in? She wanted to give God her firstfruits.

Praise God “who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us!” (Ephesians 3:20, NIV).
