If you’ve ever tried to read a piece of literature in a language that you didn’t grow up speaking, you know how difficult it can be to fully understand its meaning. For the Manado Malay Bible translation team, understanding God’s Word in their own language has given them closeness to Jesus and an immeasurable hope in him.
This translation team knows God has brought them together to translate the Scriptures so that others may experience the same closeness to Christ. They’re seeing transformation in the community as people engage with the Manado Malay New Testament, and are now working to finish translating the whole Bible.
Wycliffe’s mission is to see a Bible translation program in progress in every language still needing one by 2025.
