Augusta, 41, Angola, on the launch of the New Testament in Umbundu with her Bible and her 18-month-old son. “There is so much in the Bible that feeds my soul, so many teachings. In the Bible we have everything. The New Testament in Umbundu brings great joy to me.”
Beneficiary Impact Total number of people this project aims to impact: 6000000
The Umbundu ethnic group is the majority in Angola. It represents about 40% of the population and is the most widely spoken indigenous language. The Umbundu language is the second most spoken language in the country accounting for 23 percent, the beneficiary focus is People of faith- women, men and young people. Our focus is that the Word of God is read and is available to everyone and in the language that everyone understands. There is a great difficulty for many to read and understand Portuguese because, since their childhood, the mother tongue was the one they believed with them. For a wide acceptance of the new translation, it is necessary to visit the speakers and church leaders and work closely with reviewers in the provinces where Umbundu is the major language. The translation will benefit the reader through the texts in the language their mother tongue, easy and enjoyable and that they can understand without major complications.
