Linguistic Research and work related to Translation in unwritten lanuages. Producing Audio- Songs and Bible stories and fairy tales(optiona)
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Decided to serve others with the new stint God gave me. When I searched for oppotunities, Bible Translation Ministry gave me an open door to serve a people gruop without scriptures or anything written in their language. We,me and my life lived within the lanuage area in a village with them and completed the New Testament with our team members in 2004. After completeing all necessary checks for accuracy and natural flow of the lanuage the New Testament was printed and dedicated and distributed in 2006 January.
Now Iam working on another language working on NT translation with Mother Tongue speakers. First Draft of Matthew is over and the checkingis in progress. Working on Gospelof Mark
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Publishing Christian comics in newly written languages-tribal languages in which the Bible is translated and a translation is in progress. This will give this less previleged group more options in reading.

Hi ya, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic, (Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+)
To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. Please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pledge to support this project...
Hi again Markose, you can read my tract comics at my website here- http://marcus.formativebits.com/art/ then go to the Comics section. you could read them and find a tract or tracts that are suitable for you then you could give me your emial so I can email printable versions.- also have you got some more info about your missionary organisation and some photos of you and how your work is progressing? the ones that might be appropriate for you are- "Lost Coin", "thief on the cross", maybe-"unmerciful executive"-might not be, "chill out bird boy" may or may not be suitable, "healing on saturday" may or may not be useful. I also have one more I did recently for a kids holiday activities program to help the kids remember our memory verses for that day.- it is 2X A5 size pages where Jesus tells Peter to go out fishing and Peter complains but goes and brings in a massive catch. it's done a lot quicker than my other comics- so it's not as neat and tidy- but the kids still liked it. I don't have it posted up anywhere but I could maybe send it to you to check it out when I get your email.
So encouraging to hear about applying comic art with a Mission focus. thanks and please post any progress you have with your idea of reaching out using comics. I've just joined this site but I gather what Nate Butler is saying you could use existing comics and translate them. Perhaps comics on portions of Scripture like Proverbs/Parables and use them in combination with conversations?
I might have some you could use? I have a short tract showing Jesus on the Cross with the two Criminals-that could easily be translated accross cultures.- I will make sure I have the right resolution and post it somewhere.
I received your comment on my page, but I'm unclear on what you need help with, brother ... Contacts for more translation work with publishers in India? Help finding comics from outside of India that you can translate and publish in India yourself? Please let me know. You can go to this page of our website and use the "Other questions" e-mail address to contact our ministry directly:
Happy Thanksgiving, at least here in the US! I'm Scott A. Shuford, one of the new Board members. I wanted to stop in and say thanks for being involved with CCAS! If you have any input or would like to be involved with anything in particular, please let me and Eric Jansen (Membership Coordinator for CCAS) know by contacting us both through the site. We'll be making several announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. To see a bit more about me, check out my profile here on the site. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
Welcome to CCAS! Translating the Bible? That's pretty cool, I only partly translated one page of my comic into Japanese, and that was pretty tough, so I can only imagine for the entire Bible!
I'm new to comics like a three year old, but by God's grace He is giving me what I need to do the job, so I know He'll do more than the same for you!
Beloved in Grace,
