Should they be without the WORD? The approximately 200,000 Yungur-speaking community in Adamawa state, Nigeria has no Bible in their heart language. Although they have and use the Hausa Bible, this does not fully satisfy the yearning of the community to have God speak to them in their own language. To help the Yungur people hear God in their native language, The Bible Society of Nigeria has launched the Binna (Yungur) First Bible Translation Project. The project is in keeping with the mission of The Bible Society of Nigeria which is "making the Holy Bible available and affordable to Nigerians in their preferred languages and formats, helping them to engage with the Word of God through life-transforming programmes." The project is to make God's Word available to the Yungur people in their mother tongue, to facilitate evangelistic efforts which will bring the people to the knowledge of God and bring about transformation in their lives. It will also help to facilitate literacy in Yungur-speaking communities.
