    Pray for the security situation in the country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Pray that God would give the Christian community wisdom and that Christians will choose to love and respect their neighbours.

  • Translators for Mayogo translation

    Pray for the choosing of one or two additional translators for the Old Testament translation in Mayogo. Pray for their training and preparation for the work. Pray that God would prepare their hearts as they handle his word. Pray that God would give the translators the ability to translate in a way that is clear and natural.

  • God's word in Mayogo

    Pray that many hearts will be transformed by the reading and hearing of God's word in Mayogo throughout the language community.

  • Healing from trauma

    Participants in previous trauma healing workshops in Bangui, Central African Republic, are facilitating healing groups and sharing with others about being healed from their wounds of trauma. One young woman taught others about how to help traumatized children. People listened with tears running down their cheeks and responded, “We did not realize that the ways our children were acting were symptoms of trauma. Punishing them only made things worse. Now we know what to do to help them.” Pray for healing for victims of trauma and for those ministering God’s healing to their friends and neighbors. Thank God for working His healing in many lives.

  • Bible translators minister to others

    In the midst of civil conflict, Lutos Bible translators in the Central African Republic also minister to speakers of their language in other ways. They seek to bring God’s healing to the wounded hearts of the traumatized people around them. They welcome displaced people into their homes and provide what help they can. They desperately long for an end to the conflict. Pray with them that peace will return soon to their home areas. Pray that the available Scripture portions will reach deep into people’s hearts and bring God’s healing.

  • Courage and persistence

    Kabba Bible translators in the Central African Republic have worked on the New Testament translation for over 20 years. At times they were hindered by armed uprisings, civil conflict and infrastructure issues in the country. Sometimes they, along with their families, could not live safely in their home areas. Please pray for peace in their home town, Paoua, and that they will be able to complete work on the New Testament in 2017. Pray that many more Kabba people will be able to hear God speaking to them in their language.

  • Translator joins Mpyemo team

    In December 2012, the Mpyemo Bible translation team from Central African Republic (CAR) asked for prayer to find a third team-member after the tragic death of their colleague Severin. Join them in thanking God for new team member Loïc Kilo. The process took longer than expected due to civil conflict and insecurity in CAR. Pray for Loïc’s training and integration into the team and that they will work well together. Pray that Loïc will encourage and bless the team. Give praise that the JESUS film is available in Mpyemo.

     

  • Sangu Scriptures nearing completion

    The entire Sangu New Testament is scheduled for completion in 2017. Sangu is one of the 13 languages included in the Mbeya Cluster project, which represents about three million people in the Mbeya area of the United Republic of Tanzania. In partnership with the local churches, Bible translation and mother tongue literacy programs have been launched in most of these languages. Pray that more Sangu people will learn to read and engage with the Scripture. Pray for protection for the translation team and their families as they prepare the Sangu Scriptures for publication.

  • Progress in Ngbugu translation

    Thank God for the Bible translation progress the Ngbugu translation team made last year in the Central African Republic (CAR). Their home area is deeply affected by the ongoing conflict in CAR. Join the team in thanking God that Jesse-Joël received linguistics training in Cameroon and will be a great help to the team. Give praise that Guy-Florent joined the team. Pray that God will give the entire team and their families good health. Ask God to protect them in every way as they work towards finishing the Ngbugu New Testament translation. (Watch and listen to the JESUS film in Ngbugu.)

  • Mru devotional book

    Praise God for the printing of a Mru Bible story devotional book in December. Pray that it will be well-received and used in the community. The translation team is working hard to prepare materials for a beginning literacy book that uses the translated Scripture portions. Praise God for motivated leaders who want to see Mru people reading and engaging with God’s Word, and pray that plans for literacy classes in eight villages will go forward smoothly. Pray that the Mru would seek to know God more deeply through His Word.
