Why I Chose The Seed Company as a TOH Charity

July 9, 2010

Threads of Hope is proud to support The Seed Company, an affiliate of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Beyond the spiritual need that people have, The Seed Company and Wycliffe both acknowledge the overwhelming need that still exists for literacy for millions around the world. This video reminded me of that tremendous need and how Bible translation is part of helping equip mainly women and children with the ability to read. Reading is something we take for granted. Words surround us, but what if they were only black lines? What if there was no logic to them? Reading gives us power, helps us think, and give us a voice.

I love reading — the power of a story, the beauty of a well-written phrase, and even the act of mentally translating symbols into sounds that my mouth makes. Amazing! And unbelievable how privileged I am, how much of a minority I am (especially as a woman) to be able to read. Literacy is still a huge need around the world, and Threads of Hope is proud to be part of a group that is working to equip people with the ability to read.
