CHRISTIAN volunteers are giving a talk about their work to translate the Bible into 800 languages spoken in a South Pacific country.

Wycliffe Bible Translators will be discussing their work in Papua New Guinea during an event at St Andrew’s Church, Gosforth Valley, Dronfield.

The project has been ongoing for more than 10 years, involving Phil King, nephew of St Andrew’s parishioner Donald King, working with his partner Kate to train people in Papua New Guinea to translate from English into the multitude of tongues.

Phil will give an illustrated presentation about his family’s life, work and experiences in Papua New Guinea for the project.

The talk - ‘To the ends of the earth, one nation, one message, 800 languages’ - takes place on Saturday, April 21, at 7.30pm.
