Acoli Bible Revision

The Acoli people have a Bible in their heart language, but the words used in the text have become dated and difficult to understand. The Church in Uganda has voiced a desire to have a revised edition of the Bible and the Bible Society has taken on the challenge. This revision will contain a more contemporary text that will be relevant to the Acoli speakers, allowing them to more fully understand the message that God gives to them. 


Bibles for the Blind

Braille BiblesLife can be hard for people in Uganda who are blind. Considered to be cursed, children who are blind are kept at home, denied education, ignored in society and excluded from taking part in church activities. 

The Bible Society of Uganda is reaching out to these people with the Word of God, placing Braille Bibles at their fingertips, and Audio Bibles at their ears.

By putting the message of Christ in front of people in a way they can use and understand they are able to find new meaning to their life. People can move from an existence of loneliness and bitterness to a full life in Christ of acceptance and love.
