Grabbing the Words of Jesus

In the Karang language in Cameroon one says mgba kusol or “grab voice” for audio recording. Since 2008, Jonas Gamada’s voice has been the kusol of Jesus. On Monday, the SIL consultant grabbed Jonas’ clear, resonant kusol for language team recordings, including the words of Jesus to the seven churches in the Revelation. Jonas’ voice is distinct and recognizable so it’s a good thing that he’s also respected for his model behavior among the Karang. In the coming months the SIL consultant will also use Jonas to grab the kusol of Jesus for the final version of the gospels.
