You provide IT technicians with the skills to support Bible translation

Every year, JAARS partners with the SIL* Africa IT team in providing two conferences in Africa that bring IT technicians who support Bible translation together to develop their skills.

When the conferences were canceled this year, the leadership team decided to hold live webinars. The technicians are already putting into practice what they’ve learned.

After webinar Zoom training, Frédéric Keudjitoloum Djetar, an IT technician at a Bible translation organization in Chad, facilitated remote consultations for two Bible translation teams. The consultant and translators greatly appreciated the technology, saying that it’s in difficult times that God shows his power through a miraculous opening.

Thaliane Zaou-Goma, an IT technician working in the Republic of the Congo, said, “[At] the first webinar, [I felt] surrounded by friends from around the world in this time of health crisis. It warmed my heart and brought back good memories.”
