The Kara-speaking people of Ukara Island are fishermen of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania. The island is far from government resources. The residents crave the light of hope and desire to see the community thrive. Pastors connecting with them have found it difficult to share God’s Word using other language translations.
The initial plan is for the Kara translation team to travel to Ukerewe Island to receive coaching and support from the Kerewe team. This is exciting! When former translation team members become trainers, communities unite and regional capacity increases. The Kerewe team is excited to help the Kara team gain the skills needed for translation.
Pray for the completion of a 2-person guesthouse that can serve in three ways: lodging for trainers, a larger meeting area, and rental space to generate income.
Select 10 translators in preparation of beginning translation work.
