Pokot New Testament

10 June 2019  
Share |

Pokot is a language spoken by approximately 700,000 people, the majority of whom are tribal people living in the northern part of Kenya. We are thankful to report that in 2018, following further work with our main Pokot contact, the revised Gospel according to John was approved for publication by the TBS General Committee. Editorial staff have since been engaged in preparing the Pokot Gospel according to John for print.

Recently we were able to send the final draft typeset copy to the Pokot Reviser for review and we have just received back his comments concerning the hyphenation of the text. Meanwhile, whilst the Gospel according to John has been in the typesetting stage, much of the Gospel according to Matthew has also been revised. The Society provides financial support for the Pokot project using incoming funds that are specifically designated for it.

Please remember this project before the Lord as we seek to provide a faithful copy of God’s Word for this needy tribal people.
