Since 1948 JAARS has been making Bible translation and language development possible—especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. Much has changed since then, but our mission is fundamentally the same.
More than 600 million people speaking roughly 5,000 languages have little-to-no Scripture in a language they can fully understand—their mother tongue, or heart language. And when they can’t understand what they read or hear, the life transforming power of the gospel is stopped in its tracks.
You can help do something about that.
The Race for Possible is a fundraising adventure race, held annually in three unique locations. The Race helps bridge the adrenalin rush of adventure sport many individuals crave and the extreme adventure to which Jesus calls his Church—to make disciples of all nations.
By competing in Race for Possible your team helps:

Our friends … in the outside world can now read the Word of God, even if it is not in their hands. We can say that if it is illegal to bring the Word of God through immigration, now through the Internet, they can open their computers or their cellphones and can read the Word of God. —Local pastor and Bible translator
