Director of Keys for Kids, Greg Yoder, says, “We now have an agreement that we are working together to translate Keys for Kids, into Nepali, and we’re just really excited about this new partnership where we could potentially see 2 to 3 million children hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and actually read it as well.”
First, immigrants from Nepal living in the Michigan area will take Keys for Kids devotionals and contextualize them to Nepali culture, even while they are still in English.
The devotions will then be sent to Nepal to be translated into Nepali. The translators will then send them back to Michigan to be examined again by the Nepali immigrants.
Yoder says Keys for Kids will even travel to Nepal to train locals and produce audio versions of the translated stories. These will be used in Keys for Kids Storytellers, solar-powered mp3 players with the Bible and Keys for Kids content. Yoder says they have been an effective tool for advancing the Gospel. “And the great news about these storytellers is that people are coming to Christ, kids are coming to Christ and His parents start seeing changes in their kids. They want to come find out about it, and churches are actually being planted.”
