Project Profile

Majang NT | Majang

The Majang people were once semi-nomadic. Their southern Ethiopian villages today support a more sedentary lifestyle. The Majang church includes about 85% of the population, but leaders recognize a significant dearth of Bible understanding among their membership. Mother-tongue Scripture will help them understand the teaching and preaching. The people also need to be able to feed themselves from God’s Word to be able to shape their beliefs less by tradition and hearsay and more by the Scripture itself.

The team will complete the New Testament and portions of Genesis that will give the Majang people a foundation to understand the New Testament. With the support of the local church, one Majang project advisor and three translators will be prepared to continue with Old Testament translation when this phase of the work is finished.
