Nico & Elly van Bodegraven

“In August 1992 we arrived in Papua New Guinea to serve God in Bible translation. In 1993 we started working with the Gizrra people to learn the language, produce literacy materials and translate the NT.

“In December 2020 this NT, together with Genesis, Jonah and Ruth, was dedicated to God. We would like to see the Gizrra translators continue with Old Testament translation. 

“Elly also has the desire to use her experience as a translation consultant to help other language groups. Nico will  be assisting the work of Tyndale Bible Translators in a more general way, e.g. by helping with the paperwork.”
