How the Moken Sea Gypsies Got Their Book

Naw Say Bay's Story
As told to Angeline Koh

Known by the Burmese as Salone, the Moken Sea Gypsies are the Austronesians who made their home in the Mergui Archipelago.

Numbering about 2000 and dwindling still in numbers, these nomads of the sea are scattered around the islands of Myanmar, Thailand, and the northern parts of Peninsula Malaysia.

There is a Moken folktale that has been passed down orally from one generation to another telling how the Moken Sea Gypsies lost their Book from God... 

For more than 40 years, anthropologist, linguist, pioneer, educator, Bible translator, and teacher NAW SAY BAY has put her life on the line to bring the Moken their Book, the Bible.

Enduring pirates, cobras, leaking boats in the open seas, killings, cerebral malaria, illnesses, encounters with the demons – hardships and dangers of every kind... Learning the language, creating a writing system for this oral culture, starting schools, developing language curriculum...

Bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the Moken... This is her amazing story.
