62 languages and counting

janfeb2017dailytextscoversFor 2017, three new languages were added to the large number of editions of the Moravian Daily Texts: Syriac Aramaic, Tok Pisin (a language spoken in Papua New Guinea) and Vietnamese.

Local church groups, often working with partners in Germany, took the initiative to translate, publish and distribute their version of the Moravian Daily Texts. All three projects received a start-up grant from the Moravian Church in Germany. The Vietnamese Daily Text book is published in two biannual installments. The Daily Texts from Papua New Guinea are printed in a print-run of 500 copies under the title: “Givim Mipela Kaikai Bilong Dispela De” (Give Us Today Our Daily Bread). The Syriac Aramaic version is still in translation.

The Moravian Daily Texts currently appear in 62 languages worldwide.
