To date, we have completed 50 FireBible editions in 39 different languages. FireBible editions in 20 more languages are in progress. We are moving forward in pursuit of our goal to create and release 100 language editions of the FireBible by 2022.
Languages launched in 2014 included:
Khmer and Lao FireBibles
Both editions of these FireBibles were launched in May 2014. The Khmer FireBible was launched in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We are grateful for the restoration of the church that has taken place since the days of the Khmer Rouge and the killing fields. Today Khmer-speaking pastors in Cambodia and other Peninsular Asia nations have access to this “one-book Bible school.” The Lao FireBible was launched in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
The Burmese Pastor’s Tool Kit
This compilation of resources was a direct request from national church leadership and is scheduled to be completed and printed by summer 2015. It will be distributed to more than 1500 pastors and church planters nationwide. Each kit includes 15 thematic books focused on preaching, leadership, stewardship, and the person and work of the Holy Spirit from a Pentecostal point of view.
3P-101 (Practical Pentecostal Pastoring 101)
A project for eastern and central European pastors, 3P-101 will have a different name in each country where it’s produced and distributed in print and website formats. This is a triennially printed journal of leadership articles and serialized leadership books for pastors and church planters in post-Communist sectors of Europe. Languages include Albanian, Croatian, Czech, French, German, Hungarian, Polish, and Romanian, impacting these seven language groups in at least nine countries in eastern and central Europe.
The Barnabas Way Project (Acts 11:25)
This project is being created in a unique and focused manner for Spanish-speaking leaders in the Latin America Caribbean Region. The work consists of a triennial journal, a translation of all the books in The Burmese Pastor’s Tool Kit, and the Tarsus Series (a set of ten books written by leaders in Latin America). The unique cultural aspect of this series is that these will not be translated works; instead, they will be authored, edited, and made available by Hispanic leaders for Hispanic leaders!
