The first Scripture portion in the Sengwer/Cherang’any language will be dedicated next month according to the Bible Translation and Literacy officials. The Bible Translation project began in the year 2019 and the team of translators has managed to draft 22 books of the New Testament.
Reacting to this new project, Irene Kosgei one of the Sengwer Translators had this to say:
”The thought of my community perishing without the knowledge of Jesus disturbed me for quite some time until God one day showed up after numerous conversations with Him in prayer. He led me to BTL to translate His Word for my community. Before God called me into this Ministry, I used to wonder how my future would look like. My desire was to spend most of my retirement time evangelizing to my age mates but I did not how to.
I am grateful to BTL because I am not only translating God’s Word for my community but God is also refining me to be what I had dreamt of in my old age; no more generations will be lost because the word of God is here; in our own language.”
