Serving in: Bambalang, Cameroon
We are leading a Bible Translation project targeting 10 languages on the Ndop Plain, NW. We have been in Cameroon since January 2000. Two languages are nearing the completion of the NT. We are targeting to have most of the other NT drafts completed by the end of 2018. The linguistic work should be finished up in 2019 and we have worked on creating sustainable literacy programs in each of the languages. Our current team includes several missionaries, 5 Cameroonian colleagues and around 19 local language translators.
Pray for the completion of the New Testament drafts and then the 2-3 year work in finishing the texts for publishing. Satan does not want the Word to come to these people groups. Pray for our multi-cultural team, that we would continue to work together in harmony and towards a common goal. Pray for a sustainable long-term structure that will allow each of the language groups to move into Old Testament translation as they desire. Pray for political peace and stability in our area.
Cameroon is in central Africa between Nigeria and Chad. It is the only other English/French bilingual country in the world and has a population of around 18 million. It is rich in natural resources and yet has many of the same struggles that most African countries have. There is a current crisis in the Anglophone areas
