Cloudlands Bible Translation

(Cloudlands is a pseudonym for an indigenous people group in southern Mexico because of the political unrest in the language area.
It is a delicate balance to promote people and projects but protect their identities.)

Clouds in the mountains

The Cloudlands Bible Translation Project among the Cloudlands people in southern Mexico was started in 2000. The translation team is working hard to complete the translation and publication of the New Testament and a quarter of the Old Testament by 2024, in the midst of local political unrest and multiple health and other challenges.

Coffee beans ready for harvest

Training the local Cloudlands translators has been a major focus of this project, with the ongoing vision of having some of the members step up to complete the Old Testament on their own, while other members move on to translation projects locally and worldwide.

This training has not focused solely on translation, but also linguistics, theology and language development. It is exciting to see the translators use this training in evangelism, pastoral, radio and media ministries as well as literacy classes. The translated Scriptures are changing lives in the Cloudlands regions as a “long forgotten” and remote people hear for the first time in their lives that God loves them.

Tortillas on the comal

Finances are needed to support the present translation team in the area of training including linguistic courses, computer expenses, literacy programs and travel expenses. There have also been numerous health expenses on the team this past year that local healthcare does not cover: cancer treatments, surgeries, etc.

A typical house

Adan and Jose Luis, the two youngest members on the team, grew up being mentored by the missionary translator couple. They committed their lives to God and went off to four years of seminary training to prepare for ministry.

They turned down lucrative positions in city churches and other seminaries. Instead, they returned to their Cloudlands village to join the translation team and are excited to finish the project and then start their own translation projects elsewhere in the world.

Would you be willing to join a partnership that supports Adan, Jose Luis and the other team members in helping God’s kingdom expand in Mexico and around the world?
