Removing the Obstacles

  • February 14, 2018
Andrew and Lindsay Flemming never felt called to be church planters or Bible translators. But they knew God was calling them to serve overseas as teachers, using the gifts, backgrounds and experiences they had to reach others. And when God led Andrew toward a career path other than teaching, the Flemmings found that God was asking them to trust him with seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Botswana is a country that is known for its vast Kalahari Desert. Covering up to 70 percent of the country's land surface, its name in a local language means "the great thirst" and "a waterless place." But just like literal thirst, people in Botswana are spiritually thirsty for God's Word in their own language.

New Tes­ta­ments com­pleted by, or in co­op­er­a­tion with, the Cameroon As­so­ci­a­tion for Bible Trans­la­tion and Lit­er­acy (CAB­TAL) sit on a shelf.

Cameroon is lo­cated along the west coast of Cen­tral Africa, bor­der­ing the At­lantic Ocean. Home to 24 mil­lion peo­ple, it is of­ten re­ferred to as “Africa in minia­ture” be­cause all of Africa’s land­scapes can be found there: a beau­ti­ful coast­line, soar­ing moun­tains, dis­sected plateaus, lush rain­for­est and arid plains. It even has an ac­tive volcano.

Not only is the coun­try di­verse ge­o­graph­i­cally, it is di­verse lin­guis­ti­cally. More than 270 lan­guages are spo­ken in Cameroon.

CAB­TAL, the Wycliffe Global Al­liance or­ga­ni­za­tion in Cameroon, has been ac­tive in Bible trans­la­tion for al­most 30 years. In the past two years, eight trans­la­tion pro­jects have been com­pleted and sev­eral more are near­ing the fin­ish line. Yet around 100 trans­la­tions still need to be­gin so that all Cameroo­ni­ans can ac­cess God’s Word in the lan­guage that best meets their needs.

Pray for the per­son­nel and fi­nan­cial re­sources needed to be able to see the Bible avail­able and used by all the lan­guage com­mu­ni­ties of Cameroon.

Read about how CAB­TAL is part­ner­ing with the Cameroon Bap­tist The­o­log­i­cal Sem­i­nary to pre­pare trans­la­tors through a Bach­e­lor of Arts in Bible Trans­la­tion program.
