Kimyal New Testament launch in West Papua, Indonesia

This video shows the Kimyal community in West Papua, Indonesia, as they receive the first copies of the New Testament in their language. Work on the translation of the New Testament into Kimyal started in 1963 by missionaries Phil and Phyliss Masters. Phil Masters and a fellow missionary Stan Dale were killed by members of the neighbouring Yali tribe and the translation work was halted. The work resumed and the New Testament was completed in early 2010.
