With five days left until Christmas, it’s possible you’re scrambling for last-minute gifts. If there’s a difficult person on your Christmas list, consider giving God’s Word in their honor.

Wycliffe Bible Translators makes it easy. They’ve highlighted 23 projects of greatest need in their 2019 Gift Catalog.

“In this year’s catalog, we have a match for the Steep Mountain Zapotec project in Mexico… that’s actually a project for children. [It’s] a video [series] called the ‘Deditos’ which actually means ‘little fingers’ in Spanish,” Wycliffe USA’s Melissa Stillman says.

“We’re hoping to meet that match in a timely way so that more resources can go to the project.”

Helping kids access God’s Word

As Stillman explains here, Wycliffe partners with Viña Studios, a video team from Guatemala, to create short films of Old Testament Bible stories using finger puppets. Working from a biblically accurate script, “finger actors” perform in front of a green screen. Later, a digital editor adds elaborate backgrounds to fit the scene.
