Protests continue in Sudan despite a crackdown that has killed at least 79 people and injured thousands. As described here, “Sudan suffered a coup in October. Since then, the Arab state has been reeling from constant unrest and instability.”

As the civilian-military conflict continues in Sudan, so does Bible translation. unfoldingWord helps by holding their training sessions outside Sudan.

“[Believers] still go in and out of Sudan, despite all the things are going on, obviously timing it carefully. They bring people out, people that they’re developing as leaders of the communities, for six months for some intense training,” CEO David Reeves says.

The training equips believers to do Church-Centric Bible Translation. Together with unfoldingWord, Sudanese Christians translate God’s Word into 60 languages used by more than 30 million people.

There is a Bible translation in Sudanese Arabic – Sudan’s majority language – but the country also has approximately 115 ethnic groups, each using a different language.
