Talking Bibles

Talking Bibles for the Maasai Indigenous People in Kenya

The Maasai are a tribal group that lives primarily in Southern Kenya, famous for its diverse wildlife. Many have limited reading skills so Talking Bibles International made a recording of the entire New Testament in the Maasai language. Ginny Jackson met the head of Talking Bibles, Mark Hoekstra, and through that contact volunteered to edit and add chapter headings to the Maasai translation. This collaboration enabled the eventual distribution of hundreds of the small playback devices to the Maasai people. Ginny had the pleasure of traveling to the area and delivering some of the Talking Bibles in person.
