About The Event

Topic: Eastern Lawa in Thailand

Speakers: Greg & Rosie Blok

How do you start Bible translation in a language that has no writing system? How do you reach out to an unreached people group with virtually no Christians? Come and hear how one couple has lived among the Eastern Lawa and are working to give them God’s word in their own language!

The Eastern Lawa ethnic group of Northern Thailand numbers about 10,000 people. The project began in 2011 with developing an alphabet for the Eastern Lawa language and also crafting a set of oral Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments which have been uploaded in an app. The focus is now on written Bible translation and literacy.

The Eastern Lawa project has been supported by Wycliffe Singapore’s R200 Programme since 2015.

This event is jointly organised by Wycliffe Singapore, Bukit Batok Presbyterian Church and Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church.

About the speakers:

Greg and his wife, Rosie, have worked in Thailand since 2008, and with the Eastern Lawa people since 2011. Their work has consisted of both oral and written Bible translation, and language development.
