God promises to be in His Word

“I believe that nothing – absolutely nothing – but faith and total trust in the atonement in Christ’s death and redeeming blood gives us right standing with God.” Mrs. Gbeoh heard the Gospel message as a child, attended literacy classes as an adult, and now serves as a reviewer with the Maan translation team. “I am proud to be participating in such a noble task for my people and my church!”

The Maan people believe in a supreme god, but have no way to reach him. Scriptures in Maan will attest to God’s presence and accessibility to His people. The Maan are supportive of the translation and an interest in advancing literacy.


Your financial gifts and prayers empower leaders in Liberia to complete translation of the full Maan Bible.

A revised New Testament and Old Testament translation will affirm the presence of a loving God to people who have held false beliefs for generations. Your support will provide Scripture that will nurture their spiritual growth.
