Welcome to JAARS Day June 9, 2018

Community Event

Make a Day of It at our headquarters in Waxhaw, North Carolina! We’re open 9 a.m.–4 p.m., with displays and activities all day. You’ll get an up-close look at Bible translation—and how JAARS makes it possible, even in the most remote and difficult places on earth. (1) Watch a pilot demonstrate the precision and skill needed to operate a mission airplane or helicopter overseas. (2) Come see how people get Internet in the rainforest. Record your voice into the JESUS film. (3) Learn how God’s Word is changing lives, how Internet access helps translation work, and much more. (4) Chat with JAARS people on our campus. They’re pilots, software developers, boat captains, trainers, translators, and more—people who’ve served all over the world. And they all have stories. (5) Hop into a missionary plane or helicopter. Or pile into a four-wheel-drive vehicle and enjoy our off-road course. Either way, you’ll get a taste of how Bible translators reach remote villages. Come early! Rides in both aircraft and the vehicle course are limited, and tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. (waiver required) (6) Visit our museums to take a close look at the heart of our work: language, culture, and Bible translation. Come trace the history of writing. Or learn the importance of minority languages, and how former Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas made a difference. Check out the newest exhibit about Scripture Celebration. (7) Shop at our gift shop and take home a souvenir of your day at JAARS. Your gift shop purchase helps JAARS make Bible translation possible.
