Printing In Burkina Faso Underway
October 6 to 14, Clear and Simple Media will be on the ground in Burkina Faso.
After several months of preparation, translation work, and negotiation, up to 20,000 copies Simple Truths for the New Believer will be printed in Burkina Faso and ready for distribution in Burkina Faso, Togo, and Côte d’ Ivoire. The project was initiated more than a year ago, when requests by pastors in Burkina led to translation work in the Jula/Dioula, Dagara, and Mooré languages. Other adjustments were made to the existing French translation to account for West African colloquial expressions. All four languages should be in print and ready for distribution by the end of the month.
More than 3,000 books had been printed and distributed in three languages in August to test the translation and assess its usefulness to the church in West Africa. The response has been quite favourable and additional printing projects are expected into 2017 in at least two additional languages.
