WHO WE ARE

BLEAVINS FAMILY MISSION

Kirk and Beth Bleavins have been blessed with four children (Sarah, Brenden, Vanda, Alyssa) and a heart for people. The older three kids are on their own now, and are supportive of our new adventure.  When they were each in their late teens, we took each of them on mission trips, that impacted their lives.

Kirk, Beth, and Alyssa are now using their gifts in relationships and technology to support Bible translation efforts around the world following God on His extraordinary adventure.

THE NEED FOR BIBLE TRANSLATIONI

Hundreds of millions of people around the world still do not have access to a single verse of the Bible in a language they can understand. These people primarily use one of about 2,000 languages for which neither the Bible nor any biblical materials has ever been translated.

Facing this reality, along with realizing that we have access to more bibles and biblical resources in our mother tongue, English, than we could ever possibly watch, listen to, or read, God opened our eyes and our hearts and compelled us to get involved. He has given us an incredible opportunity to partner with Wycliffe Bible Translators to use our skills and abilities to help those without access to scripture in their heart language….to know the power of God’s word.

Watch this video to learn more about why is Bible translation important.

OUR ROLES IN BIBLE TRANSLATION

For Bible translation to happen,  more than just translators and linguists are needed. People are needed with a variety of skills in areas such as administration, technology, aviation, communications, and teaching.

Kirk – IT Director

Whether in remote jungles or crowded cities, missionaries require reliable technology. Kirk is the JAARS Director of Technology and Business Solutions providing innovative vision, strategy, and leadership in all areas of technology.

Because of technology, the average time it takes to complete a translation of the New Testament alone has decreased from 20-25 years to less than 10 years.  Without functioning technology, all aspects of Bible translation would take significantly longer, so effective technology is critical to keeping Bible translation moving forward.
