Dogba Story

One of the translation consultants at Bibles International just related a funny story. One African tribal group, the Dogba, had the grandest time hearing the American consultant mispronounce their language. They would give her Dogba words, ask her to repeat them, then laugh uproariously. No outsider had ever tried to speak their language.

Thankfully, Christ’s representatives were the first.
