Trinity, Resurrection and St. Thomas Episcopal
Churches, Green Valley Baptist Church, Pinegrove, Mt.
Zion, Vance Memorial Methodist Churches and Ryan Airplane Company, join to sponsor a Spaghetti Dinner
fundraiser for Jungle Aviation and Radio Service
"JAARS" on Saturday, June 7th, 5:00 PM, at the
Avery County Airport. Eat in or take out is available.
Airplane rides will be available beginning at
10:00 AM. JAARS, the air support team for the Wycliffe
Bible Translators, flies passengers and cargo into
the most challenging and remote runways at the ends of
the earth. Their mission is "to provide technical services
and resources to speed Bible translations for all
people." JAARS pilots train here in the heart of our
mountains for their missions and will be on hand for the
fundraiser. Please come fly, eat and meet the missionaries.
They will provide an informative slide show of
mission experiences. The vision of Wycliffe Bible
Translation is to have a Bible translation started, by the
year 2025, in the 1,919 languages of the world's 6,918
total languages, yet to have any scripture. This includes
a focus on translating 402 unwritten languages in the
Ino-Pacific archipelago, 776 unwritten languages in Africa
and 591 unwritten languages in Asia.
