The DTL Difference

Speaking in the language of the heart of the people is important to them. Excited to have Fuller Equip stand by them. I am very grateful for this opportunity to learn. Most pastors are working in a language not their own; not their mother tongue. They use English. This magnifies the need they have.

DTL Student

I am very blessed with this DTL training, I found many things that I never imagined before and this training opened my horizons and guided me how to become a translator. It is not only knowledge that is needed in this training, but also characteristics that are pleasing to God so that this will lead to success in translation. This training also built my soul and shaped me so that my perspective would be God's

DTL Student

I grew up in a Christian home and the church so I can recall many moments in my life where I would hear that Jesus is our friend and He counts us as one of His. But every time I would hear it, deep down I didn’t know if I knew what it meant and felt like I was missing out on something I knew was huge. In doing module 6 in the DTL I have finally realized why I have never been able to see God as a friend.
