Birth of a vision
An announcement from our director, Bob Hitching:
Two days ago, Saturday March 29, the decision was made to launch a new entity in Central Europe called the Roma Bible Society. The management team will be made up of Dr. Todd Price, Jelle Huisman, Nóra Sümegi Komlósiné and Bob Hitching. The goal is to make the Scriptures available in the mother tongues of all the Roma groups in the 26 countries of Western Eurasia.
The strategy has three phases:
Phase One Incubation – To use the Roma Bible Union Bible translation projects as prototypes for the methods and processes of translation for the Roma.
Phase Two Development – To interface with all the various groups involved in Bible translation among the Roma and then train mother tongue national Bible translators.
Phase Three Implementation – To work to see every Roma in West Eurasia have the opportunity to read the Bible in their mother tongue.
This is a deeply sacred moment for all of us who have putting this initiative together. It is and will be a long, slow and difficult road.
