New Testament Bible being translated into Malaita's Baegu and Mbaelelea languages
Translation work in the two languages started in September last year and is expected to be completed in 2010.
The person leading the translation team for the Mbaelelea language, Aloysious Jack,
says translation of the Bible into local language requires a lot of cooperative effort.
He encourages people of Baegu and Mbaelelea to join literacy classes that are being conducted in their areas so that they can learn how to read and write.
"I want to encourage everyone to join in, and learn how to read and write so that when the Bible is released, they can read it because it is in their languages and they can understand and know it is the word of God to help them in their lives".
