Biblefresh campaign has a global focus: to raise money to translate the New Testament into Bissa Barka where speakers have no translation, and the Old Testament into Bissa Lebir, where speakers only have the New Testament. The languages are just two of the 66 dialects spoken in Burkina Faso.
Recently visiting partners there, Krish Kandiah said, ”In the UK we know the value of native translation - having the Bible in English has shaped our culture. Our problem is that we’ve lost our appetite for the Bible. But in Burkina faso, the president of the African Evangelical Alliance, pastor Samuel Yameogo, told me that the people there
would rather have a Bible than shoes.”
At Frodsham Methodist Church Biblefresh is our chosen charity this year. We will be passing all donations received for the Sunday morning tea and coffee to the charity.
