In the Milne Bay Province, a program called VITAL exists to train and mentor the teams from up to 13 different language groups and equip them to do translation for their own people. VITAL – Vernacular Initiative for Translation and Literacy was created in 2005. There was growing interest by language groups in the area to have a language project but resources to meet those needs were limited. VITAL was created so that language groups could be responsible for their own translation project. Pray that this VITAL work would continue to have impact in the communities of the Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea.
