Where the world comes to study the Bible

Pidgin English Bible

We are pleased to announce a new effort to take the Bible to the estimated 100 million plus Pidgin English speakers in West Africa. Pidgin English is the primary language for communication between different tribal people groups. It is the language of the poor and weak. It is the language of the common man and woman.We have only one book of the Bible, the Gospel of John, translated thus far. Please consider joining the translation team today - and let's get this important work completed.
