Our friends, Steve & Debbie McEvoy, are translators working among the Migabac people of Papua New Guinea. In July, Steve completed the typesetting of the Migabac New Testament books—Matthew, Ephesians, Philippians, and Hebrews. These books are now being printed at our center’s print shop.
Co-translators spent ten days in Ukarumpa proof reading the completed NT books. Four other Migabac speakers also spent twenty-nine hours making audio recordings of these four books. They took turns reading in a small sound booth while Steve recorded them onto his computer. The McEvoys anticipate taking the printed Matthew, Ephesians, Philippians and Hebrews books to the village in September, and the audio books will also be available to share on audio players and mobile phones!
We are excited that the Migabac people will soon have access to more Scripture in their own language. The McEvoys’ Migabac friends recognize the need for Biblical training in leadership, marriage and the family. Please pray that God would prepare their hearts to receive His Good News!
