Approaching the finish line of a New Testament translation


Project Description

Before she knew Christ, a Niellim woman had a broken relationship with her husband and found married life to be miserable.

But after she and her husband started following Jesus, their lives were transformed and their attitudes changed. Now they are overjoyed at what Christ has done in their lives!

We are working in partnership with local believers and a team of translators to continue the translation of the New Testament into the Niellim language. 

Throughout the translation process, the Christian community will be involved in testing the drafts to see how well they are understood by Niellim speakers. Believers are doing whatever they can to encourage and pray for the team as they approach the finish line of the New Testament.

In this three-year project, the translation team will complete the work they’ve already started on 21 New Testament books. Of these, 18 will be published.

Your prayers and investment will help the Niellim people gain access to God’s Word in their language!


Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
