Strengthening communities through Old Testament Scripture
For too long, the Alune people have read and listened to God’s Word in a majority language that many don’t understand well. “The Alune translation will definitely help people to have the true knowledge of God,” a project adviser said, “and the whole Bible message.”
After the New Testament was completed in 2012, Alune church leaders expressed their desire for Old Testament Scripture. Since then, an experienced team of local translators has completed several Old Testament books.
To help church leaders teach God’s truth and grow believers in their faith, more Scripture is needed in Alune. During this three-year project, the team will draft Ezekiel and continue work on five other books. They plan to publish Ezra, Nehemiah, portions of Psalms, and Jeremiah in print and digital formats.
As more of the Old Testament becomes available in Alune, the team expects local ministries to grow stronger and to see communities transformed as a result. “People will understand clearly who God is,” the adviser said.
Your prayers and gifts will help Alune people access more of God’s Word in their own language!
Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
