Angola: Waiting Christians Receive the Bible in their Heart Language
New Bible translations in Africa reach waiting Christians with God's Word.
November 23, 2015Print this article
Several new Bible translation projects in Angola are nearing completion, thanks to support from American Bible Society’s financial partners. With computers, translation software and hands-on training from the Every Tribe Every Nation alliance, translators are getting God’s Word into the heart languages of waiting Angolans faster than ever.
In the past, African Bible translators worked by candlelight, slowly typing out their translation on one computer. But with state-of-the-art technology and training, minority languages in Angola, including Songo, Umbundu and Nkumbi, will have their first complete New Testament and Old Testament Portions by 2016. Coordinator of the Kikongo translation project Manuel Dilubanza pleads, “We ask for your prayers and help that this project could be completed.”
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
