Dave

Benin Bible Translation Consultant

Amount Raised $0.00
Team Goal $0.00
Pastor Pierre Barassounon has been involved in Bible translation for over twenty years. He has now completed four years of graduate training and been recognized as an official translation consultant by SIL. He is currently involved in four active SIM-sponsored Bible translations (Fulfude, Monkol, Sola, and Boo) as well as several outside translation projects. His main activities are: checking translations, doing exegesis of the original text for local translators, training local translators, verifying manuscripts for typesetting and publication, planning and organizing translation work, encouraging linguistic research, and promoting literature production. This project provides for some of the exceptional expenses occasioned by the nature of his work.
