Inheritance – Weekly Inspiring Image

Betty Amon-12

Betty Amon reads from the Nuku oro New Testament as other members of the Nukuoro translation team meet to pray. Women in Betty’s family have been longing for, and working on, a full Nukuoro Bible for generations. Betty inherited the call to bring God’s word to Nukuoro speakers from her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother before her. Just a tiny island in the vast Pacific, Nukuoro comprises only 1,000 speakers. But their desire to understand God’s message has been strong enough to carry on for decades without expert help and modern resources. With some help from Wycliffe’s partners, a full Bible in Nukuoro will soon be published. Read Betty’s story
