Yumplatok Audio Scripture Recording – Australia



Project 8532

A Bible dedication is cause for great joy – marking the completion of years of hard work and perseverance. There was great celebration when the Yumplatok New Testament (and Genesis, Ruth and Jonah) was blessed in Townsville on 12 July 2014. But this was really just the beginning of the ongoing work of encouraging Yumplatok speakers in the Torres Strait to apply Scripture to their daily lives.

Michael and Charlotte Corden (translation facilitators) have always had a passion for Scripture to be made available in the heart language of the Yumplatok people, but also to see it used and cherished.

As well as the printed Scriptures, the Yumplatok Bible is already available as a web download and mobile phone app. But there is a growing request for audio recordings. Audio Scripture is a powerful means of evangelism and discipleship as it communicates the gospel in a format suitable for oral learners.

To reach the goal of making audio recordings of Yumplatok Scripture available, funding is needed for the initial phase of recording. Yumplatok speakers will work with technicians for 20 days in a studio to produce the first set of audio Bible recordings, with plans to continue in the future.
