“He’s reading in our language!” (The Prices Write, October 2019)

For almost a year, we have been making steady progress translating a book containing 50 Bible stories into Ludari, the Roma language spoken in our village. This is […]

“It makes me so happy to read the Gospel in my mother tongue” (The Prices Write, August 2019, part 1)

I (Todd) recently met with Nedeljko (pictured above), and his daughters, Nataša and Renata to check our translation of Luke 1-11 into the Bayash language, and to test it out with listeners from their village. As Nedeljko read it in his heart language, he got goose bumps and was choked up. His face lit up […]

When is a story not a story, and a seed not a seed? (The Prices Write, May 2019, part 2)

The other day we translated the first draft of the 21st Bible story in the Ludari language. This story in the series is not actually a story but rather a lesson which bridges the gap between the 20 stories from the Old Testament and the 29 from the New Testament in order to explain how […]
