For #GivingTuesday, Wycliffe is printing newly-translated Bibles for African language

Wycliffe Bible Translators Commits #GivingTuesday Funds to Fuliiru People of the Democratic Republic of the Congo

ORLANDO, FL (November 26, 2018) – Wycliffe Bible Translators USA today announced it is committing funds raised on #GivingTuesday to print Bibles for the Fuliiru people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Wycliffe’s goal is to raise $25,000 to print 5,000 Bibles.

“Giving Tuesday is a wonderful opportunity for worldwide charity during the holiday season, and we’re proud to be a part of it,” said Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe. “We hope our supporters will help us celebrate the holidays this year by giving the gift of the Gospel in the language that speaks to the hearts of the Fuliiru people.”

#GivingTuesday 2018 falls on November 27. It’s a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Gifts made through Wycliffe’s #GivingTuesday page will directly fund the printing of the Fuliiru’s Bible.

An estimated 400,000 Fuliiru people live in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The spread of the Gospel to the group has transformed their communities, but they have waited nearly 20 years for a version of the Bible in their native language.

“It only takes $5 to print one Bible and give the Fuliiru people access to the hope and peace found in the Scriptures — a gift that will impact not only their own lives, but also those of future generations,” Creson said.

Participation in #GivingTuesday is an annual tradition for Wycliffe, funding thousands of translations for a different people group around the world every year. #GivingTuesday 2017 tripled its fundraising goal, supporting the printing of more than 4,500 Bibles for the Giryama people of Kenya.

*#GivingTuesday is a social media-driven campaign that raises hundreds of millions of dollars annually for charitable causes & organizations.

3D Cookie Cutters by Francesca4me, Inc.

I recently won the school themed set of 3D printed cookie cutters from Francesca4me, Inc on Facebook! I got the crayons, stapler, scissors, eraser and U.  I thought the eraser was a file box for 3x5 or 4x6 cards. Giggles.

The instructions for my set of cookie cutters indicated that it is not dishwasher safe. But, there are many standard PLA(Polylactic Acid/Polyactide)  or dishwasher safe PLA 3D cookie cutters.There are various sizes to choose from as well.

School Themed Set of Instructions: (Not Dishwasher Safe)
  • Never place in dishwasher.
  • Never use hot water.
  • Clean cookie cutter by hand using warm, soapy water.
  • Do NOT use spray or oils on cookie cutters.
  • Use flour to prevent sticking.
My girls and I plan on making sugar cookies with our school themed set. What recipe should we try? Do you have a favorite? I thought you would like to know the cookie recipe featured at Francesca, Inc. It is called Mom's Cookie Recipe. There's an icing recipe link to follow too.

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill 1 hour. Roll dough ¼” -3/8” thick. Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until slightly golden. Transfer to a cooling rack.
