Konso Bible Dedication

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.” – 1 Corinthians 3:6-9

On Sunday, February 11, 2024 we celebrated the Konso Bible Dedication. After 19 years of dedicated translation work, the full Bible has been translated. Lutheran Bible Translators was honored to partner with the Konso translation team. We pray that the Word of God, now translated into the Konso language, will begin its transformative work in hearts and minds both now and for generations to come, and we keep in prayer the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus, their ministry, and mission.

On the welcome banner at the Bible Inauguration celebration was written Psalm 126:3, “The LORD has done great things for us and we are filled with great joy.”
