The Lughuru People

The Lughuru are from the Morogoro region of Tanzania, East Africa. There are approximately one million Lughuru speakers of this beautiful language.


Since the start of the project, many wonderful resources have been translated such as portions of the Bible, pamphlets, and chronological Bible stories. By having these resources in the language that speaks directly to their hearts, people have been more open to hearing the Word of God and many have deepened their relationship with God through Bible study groups. All these tools have the power to be used by the Holy Spirit to transform people's lives and support local Christian leaders who desire to see each person come into a deep, personal faith in Jesus Christ, leading to individual and cultural transformation.

Those of the Lughuru people who have given their hearts to Jesus have experienced dramatic life changes. Some who were known to be heavy drinkers have given up drinking, have greater joy and have become more productive in their communities. Many men have grown to care more for their families. This transformation has a tremendous impact on their family and community, encouraging others to also follow Jesus.

Your support makes it possible for these people to delve into the exciting life-changing adventure that is found through God's words and stories found in the Bible. You can help the team complete the Old Testament and give the Lughuru-speaking people the complete message of the Bible - for the first time in history!

The Word for the World is enabling all people to have access to God’s Word in their own heart language by 2050. We equip and empower people in local communities to translate the Bible for their own people.
