Mandara Instructors' Training Course

After the S.A.L.T. course, the Mandara Bible Translators hosted a S.A.L.T. Instructors' Training Course (SITC).

Committee Chairman, David Sombara, said: "Our vision is for our local translation committee to use the S.A.L.T. material to evangelize the Mandara people and encourage them to study God's Word in their own language. We thank the S.A.L.T. team for coming to Simberi Island and teaching this course!"

12 new Instructors are certified to conduct S.A.L.T. courses.

We are praying that a group of the Mandara S.A.L.T. Instructors will help teach the Sursurunga S.A.L.T. course in July of 2011. Please pray for these new instructors!

Mandara S.A.L.T.

Wycliffe Bible Translators Steven and Holly Hong have spent almost twenty years with the Mandara people of New Ireland, Papua New Guinea. On May 20, 2010, the fruit of their years of labor was realized with the dedication of the Mandara New Testament in the Mandara language. The Mandara Bible Translators then hosted a S.A.L.T. course with thirty-seven pastors and church leaders graduating from the course on July 19th. Please pray that the over 4,000 Mandara speakers continue to use their vernaular New Testaments to the glory of God!
