Dave & Mitzie Shinen

Alaska

We are working with our Yupik coworkers on completing the final revision of the New Testament and selected passages from the Old Testament. In the 1990s we were involved in helping establish an indigenous church among the Yupik people in Russia and there are currently five small congregations there. We have provided them with 50% of the New Testament, the Yupik Hymnal and other Christian literature. Providing God’s Word for a people in their mother-tongue is a great contribution to their spiritual well-being. Not only does it contribute to their spiritual growth, but it often has a stabilizing effect on their culture as well.
