Zambia: Record-breaking translations reach waiting language groups.
Ila and Nsenga speakers recently received God's Word in their heart language.
A mere three and half years after the translation projects started, the Nsenga and Ila New Testaments officially launched in Zambia in July 2016. Together these two translation projects made God's Word available in the heart languages of approximately 1 million people.
In the past decade, New Testament translation projects like these took an average of eight years to complete. But through financial and technological support from Every Tribe Every Nation—a global alliance of Bible translation agencies, including American Bible Society—translators in Zambia were able to cut that time in half, bringing God's Word to waiting language groups faster than ever.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for nearly 200 years.
