“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 literacy increases.
A significant portion of the Old Testament has been drafted with ongoing work on the New Testament revision. The project is tentatively scheduled for completion in 2023.
Complete the review and checking of Ecclesiastes, Ezekiel, Romans, 1 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians.
Print the translated portions after checking is complete and distribute to Maan churches.
Faith in Christ breaks barriers created by superstition and fear.
Increased literacy leads to a sense of pride and self-worth.
Pray that the Gospel message will reach more Maan speakers.
Pray that local churches will continue to support the translation project.
Pray for funding so literacy programs can be established in more communities.
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.
