Missionaries to the Bariai People of Papua, New Guinea
Steve & Carol Jean Gallagher have been working with the Bariai people in Papua New Guinea since 1993. They and the Bariai translation team have translated the New Testament with Genesis and Exodus into the Bariai language. In July 2012 the completed Bariai Scriptures were dedicated and distributed to the Bariai community. In addition to their ongoing literacy work and Scripture promotion with the Bariai people, the Gallaghers are involved as consultants to their colleagues in other projects in Papua New Guinea and are exploring the possibility of adapting the Bariai translation into a related language.
