The book of Genesis in Ikizu.

Last week I had the huge privilege of attending the official celebration of the book of Genesis in the Ikizu language!

“The book of Genesis – in Ikizu and Sizaki”

There were a number of speeches, and songs and dances from the choir:

This was a great celebration for the Ikizu translators. They have been working on this for over three years!

People were able to hear the book of Genesis read in Ikizu in public for the first time:

There was the opportunity for people to buy their own copy of Genesis, as well as some other books already printed in the local languages.

It was wonderful to see so many people of all ages engaging in God’s word in their mother tongue.

Please be praying for the Ikizu, not only that these books of the Bible would be used and read, but that they would bring people into a closer relationship with their Creator God.
