Translating Old Testament Selections

Kasem

Project Description

A Kasem man jumped for joy as he received a copy of 1 and 2 Samuel in his language. "That's what I was looking for with all my heart,” he said. The church leader who gave the man the books also shared the gospel message with him — and he decided to follow Jesus!

We are working with a local team to continue the translation of the Old Testament in the Kasem language.

Over the course of this four-year project, the team will publish three previously translated books — Judges, plus two others chosen by the community. They will also complete the translation of the remaining eight books of the Old Testament.

Recently, two local radio stations have been broadcasting Scripture readings in Kasem. “People are blessed through the reading and comment on the Scriptures in Kasem,” said a project coordinator. “We received much feedback showing the impact of the Scriptures in their lives.” 

Your prayers and investment will help make more of God’s Word accessible to the Kasem people!
