On February 11, 2024, the Krung people group of Cambodia held a Bible dedication to celebrate the New Testament in their own language!

OMF (U.S.) missionary Kreg Mallow said, “So many contributed to the translation of the Krung New Testament. Led by Chuck and Sally Keller foremost, then by Brian Kane. And local Krung translators serving for nearly 2 decades. What a great partnership between OMF, EMU (Evangelical Mission to the Unreached) and Wycliffe for over 30 years now.”

EMU’s Kane wrote: “My great burden was that in all the festivities, 2 goals would be accomplished: Christ would be lifted up and the Krung church would gain a new excitement about the Word of God. God answered our prayers!

It was an incredible day of celebration and worship through music, prayer, Scripture reading, testimonies, and preaching. It was an unmitigated success! Thank you all for your prayers and gifts which made this day a reality.”

If you’ve grown up with multiple Bibles in your house, had access to them in a nearby Christian bookstore, or have multiple translations on an app, it might be difficult to appreciate how wonderful this news is for the Krung people to now have a New Testament in their own language.

You can hear directly from members of the Krung community just how important it is to have a Bible in their own language. (Be sure to turn on Subtitles/Closed Captioning.) And here’s video of the Krung Bible procession and dedication.

Thank you to Kreg Mallow and Brian Kane for providing the information and photos for this special event!

We can all learn again just how precious God’s Word is. Let’s all celebrate just like our brothers and sisters in Cambodia whenever we open the Bible!
