Exegete with the Kalanga Bible Translation Project, Botswana
Rev. Michael and Jo Ann Megahan (pronounced muh-GAN) have been committed to serving others and devoting their lives to the mission of bringing people to faith in Jesus Christ their entire lives.
In 1982, Michael and Jo Ann were called to serve as Bible school teacher and pastor in Tanzania. In 1988, Michael became assistant to the bishop of the East of Lake Victoria Diocese in Mwanza. In 1998, the World Mission Prayer League sent the Megahans to the mountains of north central Kenya to work with the Samburu tribe, which had no Bible in their language.
As a result of his work with the Samburu, Michael saw the need for getting the Bible into the hands of more people in their own language. After attending the Graduate Institute for Applied Linguistics (GIAL) he and Jo Ann were appointed as LBT missionaries in 2004.
In 2005, the Megahans moved to Francistown, Botswana, where Michael serves as the exegete with the Kalanga Bible Translation Project. An exegete studies the original Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic texts and helps the local translators accurately translate the meaning into their own language.
