Simple Truths speaks Ukrainian
Clear and Simple Media is pleased to announce the completion of the Ukrainian translation of Simple Truths. The book is now online in the download section of our A Simple Word website [HERE].
Historically, we only engage in a translation project where we know that the book will be of help to an existing group or congregation. Also, that group would need to have networks that would ensure the future distribution of the material.
During a recent trip to Canada, we found such a congregation. This church was not only connected with other Ukrainian groups across North America but had significant connections with individuals and churches in Ukraine. As we listened to the stories that these people told us, we realized that we had a new translation project ahead of us.
According to our new friends, the Ukrainian church needs material to help them strengthen existing Christians and to help new Christians become firmly established in their faith. There are currently more than 40 million Ukrainian speakers worldwide. That makes Ukrainian one of the 30 most spoken languages. Because of its troubled history, Ukrainian speakers have scattered to many parts of the world. One will find communities of Ukrainian speakers in Russia, Belarus, Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, Czech Republic, and in isolated parts of the United States, Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. There are just under 200,000 Ukrainian “mother-tongue” speakers in Canada.
We look forward to hearing how God will use our “little book” to bless the Ukrainian church.
