The Ndendeule Bible Translation project is located in Namtumbo, in the Ruvuma region. It has three translators; Nicolas Geho, Upendo Ponela, and Frank Otman. The project is one of our newer projects, as it was only started two years ago. In 2000 the population was estimated to be around 100,000, and the majority of this people group is made up of Muslims.
It is not a comfortable area to work in due to the fact that many pastors are foreigners and not Ndendeule speakers, and cannot fully support the translation team yet. Additionally, the area is dominated by Islam, and this adds to the difficulty of working there.
TWFTW is grateful for the success thus far with this project. Will you join us in prayer for the translation team’s protection, wisdom and provision.
