China: Rural Believers Learn to Read the Bible

The East Lisu people in rural China are learning how to read God's Word in the language of their hearts.

After waiting more than 100 years for a Bible translation in their heart language, the East Lisu people in rural China are learning to read the Bible through Scripture-based literacy classes. According to Jock Foo, a program manager for United Bible Societies China Partnership, Chinese Christians want to learn to read so they can study the Bible for themselves.

“Minority people … speak their own minority language, but they don’t know how to read it,” explains Jock. “People say, ‘I must learn to read the Bible, because it is God’s Word.’ ” Through support from American Bible Society’s financial and prayer partners, these faithful believers in rural China are now engaging with Scripture in the same language that they use to sing lullabies to their children.
