Located on the Ndop Plain of northwest Cameroon, the Ndop Cluster project is moving Bible translation forward in nine related languages. In a 10th language which already has the New Testament, teams are helping Christians and others in local communities to become literate and engage with the translated Scriptures.
Furthermore, efforts are underway to provide the whole New Testament in oral form for each language group, for use on audio players, cellphones and other digital media players. A film version of Luke’s Gospel is being produced for each group as well, along with Scripture-based Sunday school materials.
YOUR PARTNERSHIP IS KEY
You can help make an impact for eternity in this cluster of related languages. Your financial gifts will enable the Ndop Cluster project to translate the New Testament into nine languages, share the gospel through film and media and teach people of the Ndop Plain to read and write. As literacy takes root, they will be better equipped to access education, overcome poverty and establish strong churches built on a clearer understanding of God’s Word.
PROGRESS SO FAR
- The full New Testament has been translated and published in the Bambalang language, and a dedication event was held in early 2020.
- Work is in progress in the other seven languages in the cluster that still lack a New Testament.
- There are 22 active local translators. So far, two of them have completed training to qualify as translation consultants for other Bible translation projects in Cameroon.
- Nearly 40 per cent of all drafting work in the cluster has now been completed.
Praise God that “Adaptation Training” took place for Baba, Babessi and Bamali. This enables a first draft of Scripture to be available much sooner in these three languages. The adaptations are being made from the Bambalang New Testament. Pray for Emilien (Baba), John (Babessi) and George (Bamali) as they apply what they have learned.
