- Father, please endow the Sanga translators with divine power so everything they put their hands to will bear fruit and multiply.
The Sanga language group will receive the Scriptures for the first time. Because no mother tongue Bible
exists, animistic religion holds many in bondage, and churches need growth. About 70 percent of the Sanga
profess to be Christians.

While the Plateau area has been
stable of late, unrest is prevalent
and the situation could
destabilize. Most consultants
are Nigerian, so if their families
become displaced, focus on
Bible translation will be difficult.
Congregations plan to use
to facilitate church growth, Bible
studies and discipleship.
As Sanga Scripture becomes
available, local believers will
exhibit Christ-like love for one
another and share their faith.
Many Sanga speakers worship a supreme being through
mediums. Syncretism and fear of spirits are the sad result of this
traditional belief. First introduced by missionaries in the 1920s
and 1930s, Christianity is of little influence in people’s daily lives.
They feel it is inferior to the majority religion. The Plateau area is
nicknamed “The Home of Peace,” but clashes between Christians
and followers of the dominant religion have fractured this image
in recent years.
Church workers set a high priority on helping new Sanga
believers resist the temptation to return to their ethnic beliefs.
But this is often an uphill battle since social pressures to remain
in the old ways are strong. Shallowness of Bible understanding
leaves young believers unstable in their newfound faith and
entices them to rely on both Christ and capricious spirits. The
truth that “the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit
who lives in the world” (1 John 4:4 NLT) has yet to make a
permanent home in many of their hearts.
The economic situation in Sanga communities is generally poor
since most are subsistence farmers. The majority grow and sell
produce to meet their day-to-day needs.
PRAYER | Lord, please pour Your love upon the Sanga people and
shower Your blessings upon them in the form of mother tongue
Scripture. Hold out to them the abundant promises contained in
God, we pray that Your Son Jesus will become a living reality for
many. May He outshine all inferior belief systems and take center
stage in people’s hearts as King, Lord and Savior.
Father, remove obstacles that threaten to impede their progress.
O Prince of Peace, don’t let conflicts from within or without stand
in the way of this mighty work.
The Sanga language group is forming a committee to oversee
the project, select translators and set schedules. Local people
are already coming alongside the work in practical ways — an
indication of how strongly communities support Bible translation.
A project leader will track progress after each workshop to
ensure the translators are on target. Staff will provide computer
instruction to help the team sharpen their skills and stay up to
The Sanga translators will receive training at three workshops
per year to complete Luke’s Gospel and the “JESUS” film in
their language. Hopefully, good Internet connectivity will be
available to allow remote communication between the team and
consultants. A facilitator plans to visit the translators twice a year
to assist them between workshops.
Village worship services are a promising venue for public reading
of mother tongue Scripture. In the towns Bible use is less likely,
but believers are confident they’ll find creative ways to introduce
God’s Word in that setting. The hope is that all communities will
heartily receive the Gospel of Luke and “JESUS” film, and people
will experience transformation. By God’s grace, life change will
include abandoning ethnic religion altogether and trusting the
Lord for every material need.
