CD Cluster

HUILA 0006 Layer 2These four language groups live in an area where the dominant religion is not Christian. Availability of translated Scriptures will help to make the God of the Bible known in an environment where it is very challenging and dangerous to preach the Gospel. God has been faithful and Scripture production has proceeded despite the challenges.

Hambukushu

HUILA 0006 Layer 2A cross border group of about 60,000 people that reside in northern Namibia and Botswana. After years of making plans and dreaming about what a Bible translation could look like, the team published their first 43 oral and written passages in early 2020. They went on to complete a written translation of Genesis in 2021, which is now being distributed.

Himba

HUILA 0006 Layer 2Deep in the heart of the Namibian desert live these nomadic cattle herders, a people group of about 50,000 people. They were unable to connect with God through the written text of the neighbouring Herero people. However, since 2015 many Bible passages have been orally translated into Himba and they are now in their third translation phase!

Huila Cluster

HUILA 0006 Layer 2This cluster project is made up of the semi-nomadic Angolan communities of Handa, Cilenge, and Northwest !Xung speakers. With a shared vision and team work, these oral translations started in 2017. They completed 59 stories and 12 songs across the three language groups in phase 1, and plans are now underway to start phase 2!

Kamukuio Cluster

HUILA 0006 Layer 2The Kamukuio translation serves 3 language groups, all accessible from Kamukuio town in the southwest of Angola. Although the Kwandu and Humbe have been exposed to the Gospel, the Kuvale people had almost no believers or churches. Praise God that during 2021 phase 3 of the translation was completed, and all goals achieved.

Makhuwa

HUILA 0006 Layer 2Spread across the northern provinces of Mozambique is the eMakhuwa language group, covering about 1/3 of the population. After conducting research, the Catholic Church and other Evangelical churches found that transformation and mission required relevant narratives of God’s Word in their own languages. They're already seeing great impact!

Marenje

HUILA 0006 Layer 2The Marenje live in a tropical and mountainous region of Mozambique, just across the border from Malawi. In the churches, Scripture is always read in Portuguese or Chichewa and has to be translated into Marenje for them to understand it, so local church leaders have been asking for a Bible translation into this language. In early 2022 work finally began!

Sepulana

HUILA 0006 Layer 2Mapulaneng is the "Place of the Mapulana people." This language community of 800,000 have lobbied to have Sepulana as an official language of Mpumalanga for years. Sepulana is one of 20 South African languages without a Bible translation, but the team are now well into phase 1 of translation, and so God's Word is finally coming to their heart language.

Siphuthi

HUILA 0006 Layer 2Tucked in the mountains of Lesotho are the Siphuthi speaking people of about 43,000. They have maintained their language and culture, despite shifts around them, and have been in desperate need of a Bible translation. Despite people being told that it was not possible to translate God’s word in Siphuthi, they have already translated more than 40 narratives.
