What defines success? What about success in missions? What does that definition look like in God’s eyes? The answers are within scripture, but seeing how that is demonstrated in today’s missional landscape of larger goals is a challenge as we continue to define success in Western business model existence. Key Words explores the changes taking place in Bible translation today and how a team of unexpected missionaries were called to the task of mobilizing the world for a new methodology called MAST (Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation). While this team reached over fifteen-hundred languages in under five years, spanning some of the most difficult populations in the most difficult locations, it is not the numeric accomplishments that defined success. This journey in missions expresses the nature of success in terms of the key words that God brings for success and how they were used. For those who serve anyone in any capacity, it is these same words put into practice that can make success happen in transformational ways.
