The Gadsup Translation Programme began back in the 1960’s. Chet and Marge Frantz came in 1962 to work with the Gadsup people so that the people would do away with their idol worship. They started the translation ministry making the Word of God become alive in the lives of the people of Gadsup. Now in 2010 literacy and Scripture in Use is still going on.
In 1980 the Gadsup New Testament was dedicated and 25,000 people received their translated New Testament. In 2008 it was decided to revise the Gadsup New Testament.
