5 stars many times over! I loved this book! It's short, simple, to the point and, for me, very powerful.

It follows the Hynum family who left America to go live up in the remote mountains of Papua New Guinea with the Numanggang people. The Hynums have spent 30 something years learning the language, creating an alphabet and the written form of the language, teaching some of the people to read and write it, training others to teach and translating the New Testament & Psalms verse by verse.

David Hazell, author of God Speaks Numanggang, spent 8 years in Russia working on Bible translation projects. He now runs a home school curriculum company whose profit goes to support the ongoing work of Bible translation. His experience and passion for seeing God's word written in the heart language of all peoples has helped him to capture and communicate this in God Speaks Numanggang.

We read this book during our first year homeschooling. It is about a tribe of people who had never heard of God, much less His Word (the Bible). A family of missionaries lived with the Numanggang people, learned their language, and wrote the Bible for the tribe to be able to read.

Good book to highlight Missionary work and how it benefits a people. The kids enjoyed the pictures of the people they were learning about and how this was about a real family.
