Jesus Film Project Hits Milestone in Translations

Jesus Film Project Hits Milestone in Translations

Jesus Film Project, an evangelistic project developed by one of the core leaders of Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) has announced translation work has begun on the film's 1,500th language. 

Arriving in Africa earlier this week, translators, actors and technicians are now hard at work completing the latest translation of the film into the Daasanach language. 

The Daasanach language is an Afro-Asiatic language spoken by the Daasanach in EthiopiaSouth Sudan and Kenya whose homeland is along the Lower Omo River and on the shores of Lake Turkana.

Jesus Film Project updated their supporters via social media stating, "The technicians arrived safely to their recording location. They have made significant progress in getting the script recorded in the Daasanach language. Yesterday, they attended a local church (pictured) to share about how Jesus speaks their language. This church will use the JESUS film once this version is completed."

The film has been used all over the world as an evangelism tool and in 2012 entered the Guiness Book of World Records for the "Most Translated Film."

Building on this success in using media to reach people with the message of Jesus, Jesus Film Project has created new media films and tools to reach even more audiences. Combining these tools with ministry strategy and a digital platform that is free to use, we can help you reach anyone, anywhere, according to the film's organizers.
