Thank you for coming to look online for Waskia Scriptures. Currently the Waskia Bible Committee are revising the draft and readying it for typesetting, so the files you see on this site are not the latest ones, but are from 1985. We expect that the updated files will be available for you to access online sometime after mid-year, and we expect printed books to be available sometime in 2014.
The publication will be in two-column format with Waskia in a larger font in one column, and NIV 2011 alongside. We hope many people will benefit from this format. These are the books that we plan to include: Genesis, Ruth, Psalms, Proverbs, Joel, Obadiah, Nahum, Haggai, and the complete New Testament.
Pastor Lapan Lavong of Kaviak is the chairman of the Bible Committee. He is currently working at the SIL centre of Ukarumpa to ready the remaining books, then all will be sent to Korea for printing. We would really appreciate your prayers as we complete this work.
If you would like to know more about the plans for the dedication and plans for the translation of the rest of the Old Testament, please contact the Chairman:
