Dear WEI teacher,
The Lord has now blessed WEI with 100,000 Internet registrants in
every nation on earth! To God be the glory and the praise.
I also want to thank YOU for the role you have played in impacting
the lives of these 100,000 people with the gospel of Christ.
Without your efforts and the efforts of others like you, 100,000
people would still be lost in darkness. You have helped them see
the light, and many of them have been transferred from the kingdom
of darkness into the kingdom of God's dear Son.
May God bless you as you continue to share your faith with others.
It is a joy to be your partner in world evangelism.
With love in Christ,
The count March 2014 is growing,

Dear Internet Teachers --
We thank God for you and your willingness to work with us in
teaching lost souls all over the world. This work lets you multiply
your ability to serve and reach people for truth. You will not be
able to know this side of heaven how many souls are ultimately
reached because of each person that you are teaching.
To Him be the glory.

July 2003 a worthy note of record
(Fort Worth, TX) Modern language
Hungarian New Testament released in Budapest
After years of hard work and numerous
challenges, the World Bible Translation Center¹s Hungarian New Testament made its June
debut with a bang. Released in Budapest, Hungary, at a Missions Expo attended by some
20,000 people, the event was an adrenaline rush for the entire translation team.
Richard Loh, Director of Distribution for the Center, wrote from Budapest, "It was
exciting to see Hungarians swarm our booth to receive the new Hungarian New Testament. We
were encouraged by the positive reception of the new text and by the expressions of thanks
by many who received them." Organized by an alliance of churches in Hungary, the Missions
Expo was open to the public and attended by Christians from several surrounding European
countries. Local Churches of Christ were invited to the Missions Expo and given free copies
of the New Testament.
Among those who made their way to WBTC¹s booth to get a copy of the text were church
leaders, ministry workers and church members from Hungary and Western and Eastern Europe.
All of the Translation Center¹s European language translations were on display, but those
who read and examined the Hungarian text at the Expo "were pleasantly surprised at
how easy it is to read and how much easier it is to understand than the older Hungarian
translations now in use," observed Loh.
"Several readers actually returned to the WBTC booth the next day to thank us for the new
translation," said Loh.
The most moving gesture of thanks came from a group of deaf Hungarians who were surprised
by the readability of the text after only scanning a few paragraphs. "They lifted their
hands over their heads and waved in a display of deaf applause¹" explained Loh.
"It was an emotional moment for me to see their expression of joy. That was the grand
finale at the Mission Expo in Budapest," he concluded.
Ervin Bishop, Senior Translation Consultant for the Center, was warmed by the Deaf
response. "The English Easy-to-Read version was originally developed with the Deaf in mind
and I¹m especially pleased to see that the Easy-to-Read Hungarian New Testament is reaching
the Deaf in Hungary as well," he said.
The Hungarian New Testament is the 26th New Testament completed by the Translation Center
since its beginning in 1973. Churches and various ministry partners will soon distribute
the New Testament¹s first printing of 21,500 copies throughout Hungary. "Already, some are
asking when they will be able to have the Old Testament," grinned Loh. "I like their sense
World Bible Translation Center exists to provide accurate, easy-to-understand translations
of God¹s Word in the world¹s major languages. The Translation Center has completed 26 New
Testaments and 11 Bibles and is currently at work in 16 languages. Some six million of the
Center¹s Bibles, New Testaments and Scripture portions were distributed during the year
The Center¹s first translation was the Easy-to-Read English Bible, which enjoys
popularity worldwide as a ministry tool. The text¹s easy-to-understand style is prized by
church planters and cherished by seekers. It is equally valued by long-time students of the
Word who find it consistently gives them fresh insights into divine truth. To visit the
Translation Center¹s web site go to www.wbtc.com.

is a course in survival English
with some Biblical content. There is no separate Bible course that
goes with it. There is, however, the use of Bible stories as
illustrations for learning Enlgish. The purpose of the course is to equip students with enough English to
take the ETR Bible Course and WEI English Course in English. The
student who finishes the beginner's course will have a vocabulary of 1,200 English words
and will know a little about English grammar.

An assigned teacher should be able to speak some Spanish until the
student is able to read at the 4th grade level in English. Then, they can proceed with WEI
English and Bible course. The grading keys are in English to aid the teacher.
All three Spanish

Cassette tapes, recorded in Spanish, are now ready for Books One, Two, and Three.

Spanish, Dick is considering producing a teacher's book with introductory remarks,
instructions, and questions in English. Otherwise, it will be almost impossible for
American teachers to teach the course by correspondence.

PO BOX 13989
MAUMELLE, AR 72113
- Remembering The Past While Anticipating The
September 24, 2011 From Bucharest, Romania -Twenty-one years ago you sent us to
Romania just fourteen days after the Dictator had been ousted and killed, to
attempt to carry the "Good News" to the people of this wonderful country.
Twenty one years ago we ran advertisements for Bible correspondence in the
largest newspaper in the country that had a circulation of more then 500,000
to which 50,000 people responded. Many of you worked for days, sending out
the lessons and after a year so many had responded asking for teachers to
come that we organized the first team of 24 teachers to go and in three
months they taught more then 400 students in personal Bible studies. Many
received the word gladly and became faithful Christians and the word spread
from Bucharest to 23 other cities where over the next few years
congregations were planted.
This weekend we have been back in Bucharest to celebrate the 20th
anniversary of the beginning here. From North, South, East and West over 200
people came from congregations across the country to join together in the
celebration and reported of the growth and activities of the churches where
they came from. The oldest was ninety-three and the youngest was four weeks.
They told their stories of how they had never been to church under Communism
and were afraid to enter the school we had rented to study in and worship
together but they stayed and learned and changed their hearts and lives and
now the third generation is coming on strong with plans for further
expansion of the work around the country. A retired Army Colonel told how he
was lead to Christ and successful young businessmen told of their spiritual
journeys to the Lord and the blessings they had received as a result of
coming to Him.
They rejoiced together, honored the twelve missionaries that had worked here
in the early years who returned for the anniversary and over and over again
said, "If you had not come, If churches had not sent you, if Bible
correspondence course teachers had not spent the time to study with us we
would still be lost and without hope."
As I remembered those early beginning and looked at the Christians here
today I gave thanks for all of you who had the vision, compassion and
leadership to rush in when the doors that had been closed by communism for
more then 40 years opened. I gave thanks for everyone who came, for all
those who addressed those thousands of correspondence courses, for all of
those who supported the work with monetary contributions and for all those
who prayed for God to bless our feeble efforts.
Many other workers followed our lead as we recruited and encouraged them to
come and have continued to come but without you there may not have been a
beginning or a church of the Lord in this nation today. Without you many who
have died in the Lord would not have gone from Romania to Heaven, Without
you hundreds of lives may not have been changed because they quite likely
would not have had the opportunity to hear God's Word. God Cares that you
cared for Romanians and for Hopeless people everywhere.

Distinguished Christian Service Award to Dick & Maudine Ady
Harding U's 88th annual lectureship is now history and, as always,
was a blessing. As you know, Dick and Maudine Ady were honored
Monday night with a Distinguished Christian Service award by the
university. I hope some of you were able to watch the live streaming
on your computers. We were told it would later be on "you tube."
Lola and David Crouch had arranged a WEI dinner for last night. In
addition to teachers, spouses, and friends from Harding environs,
some came from Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Arizona, and perhaps
other places I'm forgetting. We were happy to have others able to
come who have known and worked with Adys for many years: John and
Beth Reese of World Bible School, Dino and Debbie Roussos from
Athens, Greece, Stephen Eckstein from Lubbock, TX, and Enoch and
Jeannine Thweatt from Nashville, TN. Enoch and Jeannine were on
Taiwan with Adys in the late 60's and early 70's when the idea of
WEI was first conceived.
Dick recounted some of the history of WEI and its potential for the
future, after which he was surprised with a gift of almost $4,000.
Because it had been mentioned that he celebrated his 80th birthday
several weeks ago in Nicolaev, Dino Roussos led us in a rousing
rendition of "Happy Birthday!" Later, we hope to have some pictures

We are currently starting approximately 1000 Bible studies per
month, but we could easily
increase that 10 times. In order for this to become a
reality, several things must first happen:
1.We must increase the number of our teachers. This will require a
mass appeal to our brotherhood through advertising in widely
distributed brotherhood publications and other promotional efforts.
2. We must dramatically increase the size of our web site, and we
must also add more efficient tools to the site. These are necessary
changes that must take place in order to handle the massive
increase of WEI Internet students. This will require many hours of

wanting to study our Bible and English grammar material than our

Dick Ady Transferred
Presidency of WEI
to Tom Langley
In June 1989, by the grace of God, Maudine and I founded World English
Institute and Bible Correspondence School. I was just beginning to write the
WEI Bible course at that time, and there was not a single WEI student
Now, almost twenty-three years later, God is using WEI to teach people about
Christ in every nation on earth. Hundreds of thousands of students have been
introduced to him, thousands have been baptized, and churches have been
planted in dozens of countries. To God be the glory.
On June 22, I will be eighty-one years old, and I have decided it is time
for me to step down as President of WEI. On June 30, I will turn the title
over to my younger colleague, Tom Langley. Tom has been preparing for this
transition for eight years, and he is ready for his new responsibilities.
This does not mean that I am retiring. I plan to continue serving WEI
full-time as long as I am able. The Gresham, OR office will continue to be
the corporate headquarters. I will continue writing and editing this
quarterly newsletter. I will also keep writing books designed to draw people
to God through Jesus Christ. The Gresham office will, with the help of our
secretarial staff, still be responsible for assigning teachers to all postal
students, printing materials, and sending them to teachers, national
preachers, and missionaries all over the world. I plan to continue teaching
in short-term mission campaigns in Europe, Asia, Africa, and perhaps Latin
Our need for funding at the Gresham office will not be diminished by this
transition. In fact, the need will grow as God grows WEI using it to spread
the gospel to more and more places.
It takes money to keep WEI going, but every dollar you contribute to WEI is
a dollar invested in eternity. God will use that dollar to preach the gospel
to one more soul. By helping fund WEI, you are laying up treasures in heaven
where moth and rust do not corrupt, and where thieves do not break in and
To all our friends and loved ones who are supporting us in this world-wide
ministry, we want to say, THANK YOU. We love you. God bless you. ---Dick &
