We’re sorry that we must share our first retraction regarding Wycliffe Global Alliance Organizations Bible translators being martyred for their faith. Wycliffe Global Alliance has confirmed none of their translators have been harmed. Yet, another mission, Wycliffe Associates has claimed their workers have been martyred. We apologize for any mis-communication that those martyred had worked with Wycliffe Global Alliance Organizations. Once again, we apologize and will strive to verify and accurately share the many reports sent to us.  We ask that you continue to pray and know your prayers have not been wasted. Most certainly these courageous brothers and sisters, and their families need our prayers.

Statement from Wycliffe Global Alliance Organizations:

Some media networks have recently published stories concerning four local translators ‘murdered by militants in the Middle East’. Some of the news stories and headlines identified these translators as “Wycliffe translators.” In fact, no Wycliffe Global Alliance staff, staff of Alliance organizations, or related local partners have been harmed.
We are saddened to hear of this tragic story and those affected by it, whatever organization they may be associated with. We, however, have no further information about this incident, where it took place or who was involved.

    We all know that the first stories of any news report can be inaccurate. I would much rather get a heads up that we need to pray ASAP. We had family killed and wounded in the work of disseminating the Gospel. I think I might understand why certain details were not revealed. But whether they were with Wycliffe or not is not the biggest issue. Thank you.
