Bible and JESUS Film Translation Work

by KC

Those who do translation work for people in closed countries not only deal with the usual difficulties of making sure the work is accurate, but it must be done in such a way that it doesn’t attract attention. Yet God empowers people to produce these materials so that Christ’s Name can be heard in places where the gospel is forbidden. Here are excerpts from a prayer letter which was received a year ago from people who finished a translation work for inhabitants of a closed Muslim country.
“Rejoice with us! The final edits for the JESUS Film and the MAGDALENA Film are now finished, and the movies are ready for reproduction and distribution! Helen’s (not her real name) colleague is taking up the Southern “Puk” project now, finding actors and traveling for the recordings. For the past seven years Helen has worked on translating and editing the scripts, locating 30 actors, and working with the JESUS Film team to get their voices recorded. Two years ago her overseas trips began overlapping with New Testament translation checking trips as well, when she started translating the book of Luke with a new team.”

Pray for widespread distribution in DVD format, via phone app, and online postings on the Internet. Parts of the film can now be used in a variety of ways in other media products. Pray that God will send this team a narrator for recording the audio/radio version of the JESUS Film.
