Good news to the Kovol people

Welcome to ReachKovol. The goal of our team is to plant a church among the Kovol people. To do that we’ll need to bring the Gospel to the Kovol people in a way that can be clearly understood; and that means in the Kovol language.

No outsider has learned the Kovol language before, and it exists only as an oral language – not a scrap of Kovol has been written down before. We have a monumental task ahead of us to learn the Kovol language, translate the New Testament into Kovol and teach in a way that will be clearly understood.
