New Testament Available in Gwich’in


Two Wycliffe Bible translators have made the Bible available in Gwich’in,  a native Alaskan language, for the first time. Pierre and Meggie Demers, a husband and wife team, worked on the translation for about 30 years, along with Mary Rose Gamboa, who is a member of the Gwich’in tribe. One of the aims of the project is to help native Gwich’in speakers evangelize and teach more effectively.

Besides Bibles in native languages, what other ways do you think would help other groups be able to evangelize more effectively?
