Missionary for Lunch

Last week, the faculty and students were blessed to hear from Martin Weber of Lutheran Bible Translators of Canada (LBT).  Martin and his wife Joan have worked on Bible translation and literacy with the Kwanja people since they went to Cameroon in 1982.  Martin and Joan, with co-workers Jerome and Emmanuel, finished typesetting the Kwanja New Testament in December 2005. The New Testament was dedicated in Yimbéré, Cameroon with great celebration December 30, 2006.   
The mission of Lutheran Bible Translators of Canada is to help bring people to faith in Jesus Christ by making the Word of God available to those who do not yet have it in the language of their hearts.
