Naro Language New Testament Translation

THE KHOI-SAN (BUSHMEN) OF BOTSWANA, SOUTH-AFRICA AND NAMIBIA HEAR THE BIBLE FOR THE FIRST TIME 
The Khoi-San (Bushmen) of Botswana, South-Africa and Namibia can now hear the Bible for the first time
"For the first time the Bible makes sense, and it feels as if God is talking to me," said one of the girls who helped the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) translator WRITE the Bible during the long and tedious translation process. But now she was HEARING it for the first time on an Audibible.™
Mr. Hessel Visser led the SIL translation team to study the culture and Naro language in North West Botswana for the Khoi-San (Bushmen) of Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. He spent the last 21 years developing a written language for the 12,000 people speaking this very old language. When the language was completed, just 15 years ago, he started the task of translating the Bible into the newly written language, but very few of the Khoi-San could read it.
