The Power of the Written Word

Papua New Guinea is one of the most ethnically and linguistically complex places on earth. This South Pacific island nation is inhabited by about 1,000 people groups who speak more than 800 languages. Since 1977, the PNG Bible Translation Association has helped translate the Scriptures into some of these native tongues. Even through the concerted efforts of several translating organizations, in 2010 only about 210 languages had a New Testament, and only a dozen or so had a complete Bible. Christian Aid assists indigenous BTA workers who are bringing the Word of God to their people through numerous language and literacy training projects.
