Pray for JCBT
- Thank God for the past successful semester in spite of Corona!
- Please pray for the students of the current semester program with its expert faculty. JCBT is now committed to serve the Bible translation consultants because they have the major responsibility as those who review translations and give the final OK for publishing.
- Please pray that the Corona threat will be over soon and that the students can come to Israel for the Historical Geography course.
- Please pray that under the direction of the leadership of the JCBT program by the Nida Institute the JCBT program will continue its commitment to an unwavering focus on serving the biggest needs in Bible translation circles.
- Thank God that we can look forward in high anticipation of HIS leadership in this upcoming 25th year of JCBT/HBT semester programs.
