Themne speakers need the full Bible. The New Testament is available, but that is only half of the Bible – only half the story of God’s Word.
The translation team has drafted all the Old Testament books. Some books are in circulation among Themne communities and churches, and the feedback has been very positive. The team continues to work through the other stages of translation – team review, community review, and consultant review – to ensure the translation is accurate, beautiful, and clear.
“I never had the opportunity to listen to the Word of God in my heart language until today,” said a Themne traditional leader and Muslim. He promised to attend any meetings where God’s Word is discussed or preached in the language he can truly understand.
