We can experience God’s Word through paper books, by searching for passages online, and hearing it spoken to us through our smartphones. Most of us even have “favorite” versions, ones that are easy to read, or that closely match original manuscripts, or even just because we like the speaker’s voice. But…
More than a billion people don’t have any of God’s Word in their language.
…we can be a blessing.
Our partners are already working to get the New Testament translated into most of the world’s languages by 2033. Through #BibleForEveryone,* we’re helping them fund high-impact projects that can be completed quickly. Give now, and you can help the Doondo people of Africa get their first Scripture ever.
Your gift will impact the 123,000 Doondo speakers who live in the Republic of the Congo!*
Just imagine standing before God’s throne one day… and seeing some of the very people that your gift helped bring there:
After this I looked, and there in front of me was a multitude that no one could count, people from every tribe and every nation.
* All contributions received through the #BibleForEveryone campaign will be used exclusively for the purpose of Bible translation. Life.Church is contributing $1 million over the four-year period from 2017-2020. During each calendar year, Life.Church is contributing $250,000, spread across different, high-impact translation projects. As each project is completed, any remaining funds are then applied toward the next translation project, as selected by YouVersion and its partners. (See original blog post for full details.)
You may have listened to Andy Mineo’s “You Can’t Stop Me” (now RIAA certified Gold®), seen him tour with Lecrae, or watched his popular YouTube show, “Saturday Morning Car-Tunez.” This hip hop artist, who’s making (sound)waves in the music industry, has had a memorable few years. But, that doesn’t mean his faith journey hasn’t had its share of struggles.
In this exclusive video with YouVersion, Andy opens up about doubting his faith, questioning what it means to follow Christ, and sharing how Scripture helped him through those dark moments.
If you’ve ever struggled with doubt or questioned your faith, you’re not alone. Let Andy’s journey inspire and encourage yours. Afterwards, learn how you can overcome doubting yourself, God, and relationships in Andy’s new Video Plan, “Living With Doubt.”

Today, together with our partner OneHope, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Bible App for Kids in Estonian. Now, more children than ever have the opportunity to enjoy a Bible experience all their own.
Switching between languages is easy, right in the app’s Settings:
Make sure you’ve updated your app to the most current release.
Open the app and tap the gear icon () to open Settings.
Tap Language and select the one you want.
The audio will now play in that language, and any text will appear in that language, too!
Developed in partnership with OneHope, the Bible App for Kids is from YouVersion, makers of the Bible App. Designed to give children a delight-filled Bible experience all their own, the Bible App for Kids has already been installed on over 29 million Apple, Android, and Kindle devices, and it’s always completely free. Kids from all over the world are now enjoying the Bible App for Kids, in 46 languages — now including Estonian!
Multitasking. Now you can have the Bible App open at the same time as other apps, all accessible on the same screen.
