Viña is a nonprofit ministry birthed by the Central American Branch of SIL International. Viña’s mission is to build on the legacy of SIL’s 49 years of Bible translation within Guatemala and Central America. Viña seeks to carry on the vision of providing God’s Word for the minority groups through the use of nationals using high technology to produce Biblical materials appropriate for oral cultures. Viña personnel represent various ethnic groups, representing Mayan, Latin and North American culture. This trans-cultural mix is an important factor in Viña’s effectiveness as a ministry, as it provides a context where the uniqueness of each person’s cultural perspective is honored and valued. The result is an ability to use highly innovative strategies in a culturally appropriate and sensitive way.
