Introduction / History

After decades of civil war along eastern borders, Logo people are exhausted. Daily challenges include inadequate food, poor living conditions, and deep emotional and spiritual needs. Families cultivate subsistence gardens and hunt for food. Some keep goats and chickens to eat and sell. Mud and thatch homes provide no security against frequent marauding guerilla forces. Significant numbers have fled to safer towns. Religious groups operate small hospitals and schools. Fewer than 20 percent of families send their children for secondary education, fewer than 10 percent receive a diploma.

Logoti speakers urgently need hope from mother tongue Scripture. Trade is marginal, due to poor roads and customs barriers. Protestant missions began in 1913. The Gospels of Matthew and Mark, translated in the 1920s, were hampered by an inadequate writing system and limited national help. In the 1970s, translation of Psalms and hymns began. SIL helped establish a writing system in 1986 and began linguistic foundations for translation.

Despite civil wars since 1996, Logo churches are alive and growing. The national literacy team remained during war, promoting Logo texts and sales of Scripture material. Logo people form a large ethnic group surrounded by smaller tribes, some with closely related languages. These historically strong warriors have good relations with others, due to Christianity and the common trade language Lingala.
