“Knowledge of both the Old and New Testaments will give Dinka Cam Christians a better understanding of the Bible,” a project adviser said. “This will lead to stronger faith.”
We’re working with a local team to produce the entire Bible in the Dinka Cam language!
This three-year project will bring two decades of work to a close. Team members recently finished translating the Old Testament, and now they’re revising an older translation of the New Testament.
Before typesetting and publication in 2023, they’ll finalize key biblical terms and harmonize the Old and New Testaments. Children’s Bible stories, a hymnbook and other materials will also be translated and printed.
Christian leaders are looking forward to having all of God’s Word in their language. They believe they’ll be able to communicate biblical truths more clearly, and be better equipped to tackle societal issues such as theft and fighting.
Moreover, the complete Bible — in both print and audio formats — will be invaluable as they share the Good News with those who don’t yet follow Jesus.
Your prayers and gifts will help to make God’s Word available to the Dinka Cam people in a language and form 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.
