unfoldingWord to Begin Bible Translation with Masalit Christians

More than 100 people groups in Sudan have never heard about Jesus and lack access to His lifesaving truth. A handful of believers from one unreached people group, the Masalit, reached out to unfoldingWord last spring.

“They don’t have any Scripture material in their language, and they need someone to do Bible translation,” unfoldingWord CEO David Reeves says.

The pandemic put meetings and project planning on hold, but the Lord kept working. Today, the Masalit Christian population has more than doubled, Reeves says.

“Initially, we heard there were six believers. Now there are over 20 of them.”

This year, as soon as he had the opportunity, Reeves met in person with Masalit believers. “I went to Sudan [to] meet them face to face, understand this [church] networker’s desires, how we can help them,” he explains.
