  • Location: Asia**

  • Project start date: 2004

Long-term Goals:

  • Elo people to worship and honour Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

    Indigenous churches to be formed in the community.


The Elo* people are subsistence farmers with low levels of education. They also struggle with alcoholism and gambling. They are traditionally animist, often resorting to shamans for their problems. None of them knew about Christianity until this project started in 2004. Now there are a few small groups of believers, and they have great hope in the Lord and transformation in their lives.

The New Testament was published in 2016, and the Old Testament translation is in progress.
