The Founder and President of Loveworld Inc, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has said 42 per cent of world languages are endangered.
He said this while explaining the challenges the church faced when translating its daily devotional, Rhapsody of Realities, into 7,858 languages, which is a result of a 22-year-old project.
“It is currently translated into 7,858 languages; the result of a 22-year-old project with many challenges which made it an uphill task. One of the greatest challenges encountered was that 42% of the languages in the world are endangered and several were never recognised or documented before Rhapsody of Realities,” he said in a press statement.
As such, he revealed that Loveworld Inc would host ReachOut World Extravaganza on May 5 and 6, 2023 to celebrate the audacious move of the church in fulfilling Jesus’ mandate of spreading the gospel to every part of the world.
He said, “Rhapsody of Realities is a daily devotional that contains teachings and messages from the Bible. It has a one-year and two-year Bible study plan to help readers read the Bible cover to cover in one calendar year.
“For the first time, the Gospel of Jesus is being preached in all the world’s known languages through Rhapsody of Realities. “The blind and deaf are not left out; everyone has an opportunity. This is why we’ve organised Reachout World Extravaganza so you get to know what we are doing and how you can be a part of it.
“This is the most significant opportunity the Church has had in about 2000 years, and we can’t miss or blow it. We must finish the work. This is the first time in history, we have the chance to take the gospel to the whole world.”
