Rolando, a Zapotec pastor, helps translate more of God’s Word for his people.


With the New Testament already in their language, the Zapotec churches are anxious for Old Testament Scripture. This starts with books like Psalms and Proverbs, with poetic meters that resonate in the language of southern Oaxaca, Mexico.

Zapotec is one of Mexico’s 364 indigenous languages. It is the heart language for more than 250,000 people.

“My Zapotec people are coming back to the Lord, coming back to their Father,“ Rolando says. “And I want to be there when they do. The Word of God is the only thing that can transform my community.”
