In Congo, About 5.4 million people have died since 1998 as a result of war.
Yet, translating the Word of God, also know as the Bible, into the 223 languages spoken in Congo can heal the trauma that war and suffering has forced upon these people. Currently, the Bible has been translated into 120 of the languages commonly used in Congo, making brighter the lives of many.
But, there are still approximately 103 languages left to translate the Bible into. If you can translate the Bible into a language of Congo, you can increase the amount of people whose lives have been brightened by the Word of God.
The Eastern Congo Group (ECG) has begun to translate the Bible into Congo’s languages. As wycliffe.org explains:
“For some years Eastern Congo Group (ECG) has considered starting a translation training program at the theological school in Bunia, Democratic Republic of Congo. ECG is now moving this initiative forward with the appointment of Rob McKee to help develop curriculum plans. Pray for guidance. A major question is the security situation—ethnic militias and armed bandits roam the surrounding countryside. A multinational force is working to restore peace, but is relatively small in number, and is facing huge challenges. ‘Only God can bring peace in a situation where there is so much hate, fear, revenge and evil. Pray!'”
Below is TRAUMA HEALING, a video that gives further explanation of mentally healing the people of Congo.
When will these horrific tragedies end?
