GOLA TRANSLATION PROJECT
There are approximately 200,000 Gola people in Liberia and about 10,000 in Sierra Leone. About 50% of the Gola are Muslims with a high growth rate, 10% are Christians, and 40% are traditional worshipers.
The Catholic Church is one of the few churches well established in the Gola area and is helping the few Christians in the Gola region but they do not have any Scripture in the Gola language for evangelism.
GOLA LANGUAGE PROJECT GOAL
1. To translate the English New Testament into the Gola language, for the Gola speaking people of Liberia.
2. To make the Gola NT available through the publication of printed and electronic copies.
3. To also help carry out Bible engagement programs such as literacy training that will help them read and understand God’s words.
4. To work with the local churches in creating program that will meet the economic needs of their congregations.
