“The Old Testament is vital to helping Lobi churches combat the strong influence of traditional religion,” said a project adviser. “It will provide rich content for praise and worship, as well as an understanding of the entirety of God’s redemptive plan.”
We are partnering with a local team to continue the translation of the Old Testament in the Lobiri language!
With the New Testament already published, the local church is eager to see the translation of the Old Testament finished so they can have the full Bible in their language. Only 15 books remain.
The experienced team of translators will complete the work they’ve already started on Numbers, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Chronicles, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Daniel and Hosea.
As a result of having much of God’s Word in their own language, Lobi people are increasingly open to the gospel as part of their culture. “More and more, they no longer see it as a foreigner’s religion,” said the adviser.
Your prayers and investment will help the Lobi people access all of God’s Word in their own heart language!
Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
