Translation Consultants and Scripture Engagement, Cameroon
Martin and Joan Weber served among the Kwanja people of Cameroon for over 25 years, mentoring their translation team, training literacy teachers, and developing audio Scripture materials. The Kwanja New Testament was published in 2006.
They continue in Cameroon working through LBT under the Cameroon Lutheran Church, to equip and encourage nationals in Bible translation, literacy and using the Scriptures in 7 language projects. They mentor nationals, who are translating Old Testament lectionary readings, promoting audio Scripture listening programs, and promoting literacy programs. Their role is to enable, equip, encourage, “envision” and empower Cameroonian workers that God’s Word will reach people in their heart languages.
Martin and Joan have a passion to see people from the many language groups in Cameroon continue in God’s Word that they may truly be His disciples, to know the truth, and be set free.
“If you continue in my Word, then you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
