Sabelto christians have been displaced around the globe

The Sabelto program’s three distinct language communities have all received the New Testament in the past five years and have initiated a translation of the Old Testament.

Sabelto Christians have suffered persecution over the last two millennia. They have been displaced all over the globe. Their community languages have evolved into unique vernaculars.

Sabelto Christians resettled in refugee camps. They gain hope when they read God’s Word. However, many modern speakers no longer understand older versions of Scripture.

When the three language communities have the Old Testament in their language, pastors will be equipped to lead worship and Bible studies without linguistic explanation. The full Bible will strengthen believers in the church and serve as a foundation for outreach.
