Audio New Testament

 

An Audio New Testament is needed in the following languages… Ch’ol, Zoque, Tojolabal, and Chontal (at least those are the languages we would like to get started with). Each NT requires many hours of work. Getting a good quality translation of the Bible, finding a willing reader who is a native speaker of the language and who has time available to dedicate to this task are the first steps. Gregorio and Joel are our Ch’ol readers ... Amin is our Zoque reader and we are hoping that Pedro will be able to read for Tojolabal. We can get about 3 to 5 chapters done per day depending on the reader and his skill level. (Keep in mind that there are 260 chapters in the NT.)  Here is where we are so far. (clearly Tojolabal and Chontal are not even on the horizon for being finished, but that is why they call it work I guess.) ***2013 update*** The Bible Society has finished a much needed revision of the Ch'ol NT and so we will be working on an updated version of the recoding that we finished in 2009. There is the possibility that Zoque will need the same attention in several years. Also we have been informed that the Tojolabal revision is in the works already and so we are holding the recording of that project pending the completion.
