After more than twenty-five years, the Gullah people now have a completed New Testament. For decades, translators with JAARS have been working with the Gullah people, descendants of West African slaves brought to America from the late 1600s to the mid 1800s to work on rice plantations along the sea coast in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Gullah, or Sea Island Creole, is a creole language. There are an estimated 250,000 Gullah people living in these southern coastal regions today, 10,000 of whom speak the language fluently. (JAARS)
