Project 8321

Kon* is a translation project in a sensitive part of South Asia involving Australian members and mother tongue translators. There are 750,000 speakers with 4% of the Kon population Christian and growing fast.

The translation is a high priority project as the Scriptures are needed to disciple a young church. It also has the potential to expand to oral and/or written adaption into another four dialects.

This ongoing project has an estimated completion date of 2027.

2023 Updates 

“2023 was a year of significant progress – the team consultant checked six books, which are now completed.  Two Key Terms workshops were conducted which finalised some difficult decisions, and also developed a greater sense of ownership by the church leaders.  The team prepared for a major transition as the translators are relocated to Australia to continue work online and with visits back.  The translation and community review process is working well.

In 2024 we hope to see significant progress made in moving the Epistles forward.  We are thankful to your support and partnership!”
