Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA will venture into remote locations in both Uganda and Tanzania, Africa in May 2009.

Wycliffe personnel work with minority language groups in several of the most remote locations in the world with people who are classified in the top 5 percent of the world’s most impoverished. Creson will visit Wycliffe translation teams working on humanitarian aid information such as AIDS information, community empowerment and literacy efforts as well as the progress of Scripture being checked by local translation teams. In Uganda, Wycliffe is presently working in four languages. These languages comprise over 860,000 speakers. (Source: http://thetask.net)
