The 10,000 Loron people live in isolated homesteads and villages over 2,500 square miles. The majority still follow animistic practices and many remain monolingual. Few Loron people ever had the opportunity of an education.
However, about 500 Loron believers worship in 20 churches. Literacy in their heart language has become important to them, and they desire the whole Bible in their language.
The goals of this project are to complete the New Testament translation and then the Old Testament, and a literacy course and Bible teaching materials.
How you’ll be helping
The Lorons, equipped with excellent literacy tools, the entire Bible and an extensive Bible curriculum in their own language could be the catalyst for reaching out to the rest of their people group and to other ethnic groups in the region, some of which have no believers or functioning churches among them.
