A better Bible for Gullah

Speakers of Gullah, who live along the coast of the Carolinas and Georgia, have just received a better Bible, a translation into their heart language. Gullah is a creole language, with many words borrowed from English, but syntax and other linguistic features from Africa where the ancestors of Gullah speakers originated.

Celebrate with the Gullah as they hear God's Word more accurately and clearly in their first language, the language that best speaks to their hearts and minds.

Last week in Dallas I enjoyed hearing more about the Gullah celebration from the translation consultant from the United Bibles Societies who checked the Gullah translation.
