KOM stands for Konta, Oyda, and Melo. These three people groups live in remote areas of Ethiopia, but God’s Word in their languages is demonstrating that they’re not forgotten. The Melo New Testament is the first written document of any kind in the Melo language!
“Christians have been persecuted in Ethiopia for most of my lifetime,” a local church leader said. “Now, to have this dedication in a government building and to preach the gospel here is a miracle.”
An Oyda translator remarked, “In the book of Revelation, we see how God calls people from different races, tribes, and cultures in their own language. Among these tribes is the Oyda. We are now among the ones God has called.”
Many eagerly anticipated the arrival of the Dakon New Testament and the dedication celebration on June 29, 2022.
“When I attend pastors’ meetings conducted in the state language, I feel out of place and alienated, like the least among the people participating,” a Dakon pastor shared. “But when I attend a Dakon program and read Dakon Scriptures, I feel like a raju (king). I am proud of my clan, and my tribe, and I am proud of my God-given language.”
Team members closed out the ceremony by giving all glory to God and offering prayers of thanksgiving. Dakon pastors declared, “Devunu nenru onri peri kaaryam kithan,” which means, “God has done a mighty thing today.”
Papua New Guinea is one of the top three countries in the world with remaining Bibleless languages. So it was truly a miracle of God when, this past year, the Aruamu people of Papua New Guinea celebrated the completion of the full Bible in their language!
No longer counted among the unreached, the Aruamu are now extending their reach to others! The Scripture dedication only marked the beginning of the next glorious season—one in which the Aruamu continue to flourish as partners in God’s kingdom work. Translated Scriptures will be used by local churches to help Aruamu believers become mature disciples who disciple others.
