Long-term Goal:

  • Translate the NT and selected OT books into the Seagull language.

Seagull language speakers are found along the coastal areas of a Southeast Asian country. Formerly migrants from another country, their culture and religious beliefs have remained largely unchanged through the centuries.

Christians constitute 1.5% of the Seagull population, while the rest belong to a majority religion. The community has been historically wary of Christianity due to its colonial association. Although house churches have been established among the Seagull people since 2001, they are struggling to survive as there have been many attacks by the enemy, especially on the leaders.
