Baka Bible Dedication with SIL in Maridi, South Sudan

The history of the Baka Bible translation project has been filled with numerous struggles and victories. So many people, both missionaries and Baka men and women, have worked tirelessly on the translation efforts.

SIL South Sudan director Jackie Marshall-Ringer shares “We are using MAF more and more these days as road travel is now generally quite insecure in South Sudan. We really appreciate MAF’s servant heartedness with the Baka dedication with their helpfulness in arranging charters for our people to get to Maridi and also for the free transportation of the Baka New Testaments from Juba to Maridi which is a special gift to the Baka community and church.”

IT Fits, IT Works, It’s IT (Arnhem Land)

MAF is well known for flying because that is the bread and butter of the organisation.
