The San (Bushmen) and Bakgalagadi population of the Kalahari desert live in a remote, harsh, demanding and spiritually dark area. Our vision is that every person in Botswana has the opportunity to respond to the Good news, growing in obedience to God and becoming part of a local church fellowship.
Linguistics majors or interns, particularly those considering translation, are you ready for this?! This is a fabulous opportunity for hands-on involvement in the !Xoon Bible translation project. !Xoon is one of the San (Bushman) tongues of the Kalahari region, notable for its exotic click consonants and huge range of phonemes. You will have the rare and exciting opportunity to observe and take part in a safe but rugged and undeveloped location. This is particularly suitable for fulfilling internship demands in your course of study.
