Celebrating the Keliko New Testament

By Mary Beth

Praise the Lord! On August 11 in Uganda, the Keliko people celebrated the completion of their New Testament! It’s the 1,000th New Testament that our partners Wycliffe and SIL International have had the privilege to help facilitate. Please join us in praising God for this milestone!

We also praise God that the Keliko people can go to www.keliko.org to access the New Testament and other materials in their heart language.  In a JAARS media partner-led workshop earlier this year in Nairobi, Kenya, a Keliko team member was among the participants who learned the basics of building Scripture websites in their heart language.

Since the website went live in February, Keliko speakers can go to the site and view the JESUS film in Keliko, watch Bible story videos, and listen to the New Testament in Keliko. The website also features literacy materials to help teachers and beginning readers, along with a toggle to access materials in English for those who don’t know Keliko. Praise God for this online resource and the completed Keliko New Testament!

Thank you for your prayers and gifts that make media solutions like Scripture websites possible!
