On 22 December 2018, members, staff, volunteers and friends of WBTS gathered to dedicate and celebrate our new office.
Levene, who served in Wycliffe for the past 2 years, designed a beautiful poster to mark the occasion. The Bible verse on the poster, “it was a time of great and joyful celebration because they could hear and understand God’s words” (Nehemiah 8:12), describes the Israelites’ response when the Book of the Law was read and translated for them after their return from exile. This verse was chosen to remind us of our vision to provide every people group with God’s word in a language that speaks to their hearts.
Although we plan to be here for only two years, we look forward to serving God faithfully from this new location.
... Saying Farewell to the Old
After spending weeks packing, moving, discarding, selling and giving away things, all movable items had been cleared from the old office by the end of 2018. On 8 January 2019, the keys were handed over to Chinatown Plaza’s lawyers and the official date for the completion of sale is 15 January.
Please pray for wisdom and guidance for those responsible for managing the proceeds from the sale as well as the Property Search Committee who will have to start looking for permanent office premises.
