Akebu church leaders have seen firsthand how having access to Scripture has the power to transform a community.
“We have many more churches in the Akebu region,” said one pastor, commenting on the impact of Bible translation work. “And the people better understand spiritual concepts — such as who God is, and the kind of relationship he wants to have with us.”
Now, your help is needed as a local team translates more of God’s Word into the Akebu language.
By the end of this three-year project, the remaining 11 books of the New Testament will be complete. Work on four previously translated books — Ephesians and 1-3 John — will be finished by the team. They’ll also translate Romans, 1-2 Corinthians, Hebrews, 1-2 Peter and Jude.
All of the books will be published on a mobile Scripture app. Some selections will be made available in print and audio formats as well.
Additional project goals, such as organizing literacy classes and producing Scripture-based radio plays, will encourage engagement with God’s Word.
Your prayers and gifts will help the Akebu people experience more of God’s Word in a language that speaks to their hearts!
Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
