This year marks GILLBT’s 50th anniversary.  There were several special events held to commemorate this milestone, the culmination of which took place in Accra at the end of September. There was a three-day conference on The State of Bible Translation which brought visitors from all over the world to share papers and thoughts on the topic. It was truly a great gathering of minds!  The Grand Finale Celebration was a fantastic evening indeed.  There was traditional music and dancing, along with terrific food and fellowship, and an awards ceremony.
