India: A Bible first

One of the world’s newest translations of the Bible was dedicated in October by the Northern Evangelical Lutheran Church in India. It took 10 years and 10 days for Ramchandra Singh, an NELC pastor, to translate the Bible into the Mal Paharia tribal language of northeastern India. His New Testament translation was published by the Bible Society of India. The NELC now plans to enhance evangelism among the Mal Paharia tribal people through radio broadcasts in that language and the publication of a hymn book.
