Come and See: The Story of the Keliko New Testament

Apr 3, 2019

Decades of civil unrest has forced many of the Keliko people to relocate from their home in South Sudan to refugee settlements in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. Despite these hardships, the Keliko continue to persevere with joy, and many are passionately supportive of Bible translation.

In 1985, Keliko church leaders made plans to translate the Bible into the their language so that the people could fully understand the Word of God. At the time, there was nothing even written in Keliko.

But on August 11, 2018, after nearly 35 years of fierce determination, the lives of the Keliko changed forever.

Wycliffe USA would like to express gratitude to the Keliko people and SIL International — a primary strategic partner — for their dedication to this project and for their collaboration on this story.

Make a Prayer Connection: Ask for God's abundant provision so that other communities in South Sudan may have the Scriptures in a language and form they understand, just like the Keliko.
