Wycliffe Assosciates to hold banquet for Townsend-Goreth
Grace Townsend-Goreth, known to some as "the miracle baby" for having survived an airplane crash in a Mexican jungle in 1947, is to be the featured speaker at an April 18 banquet for Wycliffe Associates, a worldwide organization dedicated to Bible translation.
The event, to be held at 7 p.m. at the Kroc Center in Augusta, is to include insight from Townsend-Goreth's input on "her experiences and how people of all backgrounds are working together to accelerate Bible translation."
"It's been an annual affair for the last five years or so," said James Fowke, with First Baptist Church of North Augusta. "It's a complimentary meal. The speaker is the daughter of the founder of Wycliffe.
"Her father, William Cameron Townsend, wound up moving into Bible translation after trying to sell Spanish-language Bibles in Guatemala in 1917-18. He discovered that most of the people he met did not understand Spanish and had no written language, so he "learned their complex language, created an alphabet for it, analyzed the grammar and translated the New Testament in the remarkably short span of 10 years," according to promotional material from Wycliffe.Townsend-Goreth now works with JAARS, once known as Jungle Aviation and Radio Service.
Along with the Augusta gathering, a similar event is to be held in Aiken April 21 at 1 p.m. at Newberry Hall. Tickets for both events can be reserved at 866-461-0197. The registration deadline is April 14.
