We are happy to announce that four new languages have been added to the Message Hub web site, Nepali, Ateso, Yoruba and Chichewa. This brings the number of languages present on the Message Hub web site to 83.
The Nepali language will serve populations of Believers in Nepal. Ateso is a tribal language spoken throughout central Africa, and has been launched to serve Believers in Northern Uganda. Yoruba will serve Believers in Nigeria, and Chichewa will serve Believers in Malawi. While Chichewa has been on the Message Hub since 2013 with 3 translated messages, the additional 147 which were added in 2021 have greatly expanded the Word available. It is from these translations that Vision Books has printed and shipped 480,000 messages into the country of Malawi.
No language translation effort is launched without considerable effort from Believers who speak that language who are willing to do the difficult work of translation.
Upon launching a new language, the first priority is to get a core set of sermons translated that cover the basic teachings of the Message. In each of these languages, Believers are now at work at that task, and will be uploading their translations to the Message Hub immediately and in the coming months.
We praise God that the Believers who speak these languages will now have access to the Spiritual nutrition they need to grow and mature in the Lord. May God Bless them, and everyone who has supported this effort, through donations, prayers, or both.
