The New Testament for the Bannas
His voice rich with emotion, Ayke thanked God for Getu’s father, the first Banna believer. Ayke was speaking to the overflow crowd gathered to dedicate the Banna New Testament recently published by Midi Bible. Getu’s father used to ask, “Who will carry on the work?” God’s answer? Ayke, Getu and Dawit, sons of the first believers, would translate His Word into Banna, their heart language. Working with missionaries from SIM, they completed the translation of the New Testament, but not without difficulty and prayer.
