First Full Bible for an Unreached Group

Complete the first written translation and recording of the entire Bible for a large people group in an inaccessible area.
Deep in the heart of the mountains, in a remote region of Central Asia, live millions of people who have no access to the gospel. For generations, people are born, live their whole lives in isolation and extreme poverty, and then die without ever getting to hear about Jesus. Your gift to this project will establish the first full translation of the Bible ever made in their language.

In Phase 1, through your sacrificial giving, we were able to finish most of the New Testament and begin distribution through a variety of means. Your gifts have propelled us into Phase 2 in which we will complete the New Testament and finish the initial books of the Old Testament!

This project will finally provide access to the gospel through the Word in both written and audio forms in a region where extremism and political instability threaten every life, access to God’s Word is a critical need. Your partnership is vital to opening the door to eternal life for these beautiful souls who live in what is considered one of the most remote and dangerous places in the world. Give today!

Location

Central Asian Peoples

From the mountain peaks of the Caucasus to the steppes of Kazakhstan, the heartland of Asia is a place of mystery, having been mostly off-limits to travelers for the last 2000 years. With its blue-domed cities, frenetic bazaars, and remote yurts, Central Asia captures the romance of the Silk Road. Ancient traditions, loyal relationships, and generous hospitality make up the foundation of Central Asian values. Once home to the early church, Islam is now the predominant religion of Central Asia. Architecture, dress, and cultural expectations are all marked by it's influence.

Political, religious, and cultural divisions have fractured Central Asia's governments and global relations. This instability has left people seeking an anchor for hope and peace. Jesus is their peace, but most of Central Asia's 365 million people have no knowledge of the gospel.

Pray that as Central Asians will meet the life-giver and Prince of Peace so they can experience the abundant joy that Jesus offers.
