Each December, Bill Bremmer and his colleagues in Wycliffe Bible Translators' local office distribute tins of Christmas cookies to various embassies and partner organizations that represent people groups in need of Scripture translation and other literacy and language development efforts. However, due to one of the major "baking" churches no longer being available, Bill and his colleagues are looking for people to sign up to bake batches of Christmas cookies during the week after Thanksgiving.
This is a great way of developing good relationships and opening doors with the governments of the countries where these minority language groups live. It's a very "human" way of reaching policymakers who aren't used to such personal touches, and many of them express their deep appreciation each year.
If you'd like to be a part of this unique way of promoting Bible translation for those who don't yet have it in a language they can understand, please sign up by October 28 or contact the church office at (703) 591-1974 to leave a message with Bill Bremmer.
