This fund is for the translation of the entire Old Testament into the Wolof language and the revision of the Wolof New Testament using a translator. The goal is to have the entire Wolof Bible ready for publication by 2020.
The Bible in the local language is necessary for evangelism and church planting.
Missions and national Christians targeting the Wolofs believe the O.T. is essential to evangelize this unreached Muslim people, numbering four million.
The translation typist, paid by verse, costs $700. The reviewers and checkers cost $1,300. The consultant checks cost $3,500. Books and supplies cost $1,500.
