Ubangi NT Cluster

Men at a Workshop

Languages participating in this cluster:

Since 1998, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been at the center of one of the largest interstate wars in African history. The war has claimed an estimated 3 million lives and has directly affected more than 50 million Congolese people. In the midst of this terrible war, the Ngbandi-Ngiri, Mono and Pagabete people have responded enthusiastically to Bible translation efforts.

Well-educated Ngbandi-Ngiri, Mono and Pagabete translators will work together to produce first drafts, check each other’s drafts and plan and evaluate their projects. Sharing an office will allow them to learn from each other and work in a more focused environment. They will also spend time with their respective people groups, working with review committees, running Scripture-use courses and conducting local testing. Translators will attend a workshop each year to advance their initial training and qualifications.
