Ecuador, Latin America: Bible translation and distribution. Ecuador was one of the first countries entered by WBT. They were involved in 12 NT translation projects before they were obliged to withdraw. Pray for completion of translation programs in progress. Pray for the effective use of the Bibles and NTs now available; some Ecuadorians still copy the Bible by hand, verse-by-verse. The Bible Society has a pivotal role in promoting and distributing the Scriptures in this nation. For more information, go to
