James and Jenneka Lundeen serve with Pioneer BIble Translators in Tanzania, East Africa. Pioneer Bible Translators seeks to bring the Bible to people groups
who do not yet have the full Bible in the language that speaks best to their hearts. The Lundeens met while in graduate school preparing to go overseas to work in missions.
They are living and working with their people group in Tanzania, and working with a team of native speakers to translate the Bible. They are excited to see how the Bible
and the Holy Spirit will transform this community of people.
I talk with James and Jenneka all about what their lives are like as missionaries and Bible translators in Tanzania living amongst a people group much different than their own. We talk about the struggles of learning a language and immersing yourself in a new culture and they share the nitty gritty of what you need to know if you would like to do the same.
