There are approximately 200,000 speakers of the Ngongo language in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They live in the very fertile lands and forests of central DRC. Like many of the people groups around them, many Ngongo are nominally Roman Catholic, although syncretism with African traditional religion is common. There is no written Scripture in their language, but last year a group of six committed Christians began putting stories from the Bible into their language to be shared orally. These six have recruited and trained 25 others to join in their work.
“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2, ESV)
