Nigerian Bible Translators Asking for Help
Wycliffe Associates, an international organization that empowers mother-tongue Bible translators and partners with local churches in the advancement of Bible translation, reports that Nigerian Bible translators are asking for help after suspending Bible translation projects in 30 languages.

The global pandemic, terrorism, and economic collapse have brought Bible translation to a halt in the most populous nation on the African continent, where more than 500 languages are spoken. Mother-tongue Bible translators in Nigeria were working to start 30 language projects before they had to stop.

“This year, as COVID-19 ravaged Nigeria, they have suffered in tragic new ways,” says Bruce Smith, President and CEO of Wycliffe Associates. “The government locked down the nation, and jobs—even meager wages—disappeared. In areas of serious poverty, national Bible translators and their families found themselves ...

This writer pointed out, these people have their work cut out for them. Interesting how he covered the controversy over the verse of, Isaiah 7:14, of the RSV.

A young unmarried woman was synonymous with "virgin," if they were not a virgin they could have been stoned to death.

Yes, there are quite a few languages in Nigeria. The question is how many of them have a written language. Are they putting the Bible out on audio devices for example?

Are there plenty of Bibles in printed modern English, probably British version, that is easily accessible to the general population? Since English is the official language of Nigeria, it would strike me to be quite beneficial if they increased the availability of books that would help the population learn it.

The article is interesting, especially for the questions that it did raise and weren't answered?

The following is taken from the article: Why Nigerian Immigrants Are The Most Successful Ethnic Group in the U.S.

"Indeed, Nigerian-Americans have more post-graduate degrees than any other racial or ethnic groups. Albeit, they represent a minutia portion of the U.S. population, 37 percent of them hold a bachelor’s degree and 17 percent a master’s. 29 percent of Nigerian-Americans aged 25 and plus, have a graduate degree, compared to 11 percent of the US population. Nigerian accounts for less than 1 percent of the black population in the United States, yet, they make up nearly 25 percent of all Black students at Harvard Business School. It comes to no surprise that Nigerian-Americans’ achievements in the world of education top any other U.S. immigrant groups, including Asian-Americans. Today, a growing number of Nigerian-Americans are entrepreneurs, CEOs and founders of tech companies across the U.S. and abroad."

Its time for the most successful to give back and translate those Bibles.
