The Loko New Testament has been available since 1983. But many people remain illiterate, unable to read the Bible with understanding despite the number of churches around them. 

Literacy and Scripture Engagement Programs encourage people to interact with God’s Word using translated Scripture materials. Those who have received no formal education are able to understand the New Testament. Children will pass their literacy skills on to their own children and instill their Christian faith in coming generations. 

The program promotes the use of audio-visual Scripture materials and encourages the use of traditional songs and instruments for worship. A holistic approach to ministry encourages and includes people of all ages from all walks of life. 


Enable people to interact with God’s Word in a language they understand.

Encourage people to participate in various learning and worship activities.


The literacy rate among the Loko people is increasing.

People are sharing Scripture with their children as they come to better understand God’s Word.

Pray that faith is strengthened as people come to understand God’s Word.

Pray that programs and activities meet the needs of the whole Loko community.

Though the New Testament is available in the Loko language, many people remain unable to read. A multi-faceted Scripture engagement program will provide people with a variety of ways to read and understand God’s Word.
