Focus on Africa

Africa is rich in natural resources and home to more than 12 percent of the world’s population. Basic essentials are not available for many minority language groups. The AIDS/HIV epidemic and food crisis is decimating the young adult population and leaving millions orphaned. Ongoing violence and unparalleled suffering perpetrate family and spritiaul brokenness. Indigenous traditions play a significant role in religious practices, including animal sacrifices, spirit worship, and fear of curses. God’s Word in the heart language will help shape a bibilcal worldview to address lifestyle as well as economic and cultural issues. In Africa, more than 800 language group need a first-time translation of Scripture.
