Papua New Guinea

In Papua New Guinea, Bible translation projects have yet to be started for more than 380 languages. Wycliffe Bible Translators, the RCA’s mission partner in Papua New Guinea, works toward translating Scriptures for people to read in the language they know best. RCA missionaries in Papua New Guinea work with Wycliffe Bible Translators on linguistics and translation projects. They also seek to fulfill the spiritual needs of the people through worship, community service, and fellowship.
