Yupik New Testament Bible Translation

By: Jeff Schaap

Located 150 miles off the coast of mainland Alaska, St. Lawrence Island has been home to the Yupik people for over 2,000 years. And after almost 60 years of translation work, the community has the complete Yupik New Testament!

Discover more about this beautiful island and its people, learn the incredible story of the Yupik New Testament translation, and hear from the translation team, local pastors and the Yupik community as they describe what it’s like to finally read God’s Word in their language.

Wycliffe’s mission is to serve with the global body of Christ to advance Bible translation and work together so people can encounter God through his Word.
