The gospel of Luke in the Kabwa language

December 15, 2011 in Wycliffe, Mark, Africa, Bible translation, Front, Language, Tanzania by Mark

Last month another of the language groups in Tanzania’s Mara Region, the Kabwa, celebrated the completion and publication of the gospel of Luke in their language. The Kabwa are a relatively small language community that the language survey team that I was part of visited back in 2005,┬áliving mainly in just two villages to the south of Musoma town. Despite being a small group the Kabwa are very proud of their language and were eager to translate the Bible so that they could understand it better and pass it on to future generations.

Our colleague Michael Nicholls has again taken some excellent photos of the dedication event last month, some of which are below:
