Roger Mohrlang, born in Hastings, Nebraska (1941), became a Christian and lover of the New Testament during his student years at Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). From 1968 to 1974 he worked as a linguist and Bible translator among the Kamwe (Higi) people in northeastern Nigeria. Following the translation of the Kamwe New Testament, he completed graduate studies at Fuller Theological Seminary (MA), where he met his wife Dottie, and the University of Oxford (DPhil in New Testament). In 1978 he joined the faculty of Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, and has been teaching biblical studies ever since. He has also been active in Bible translation projects (the revision of the Kamwe New Testament and the New Living Translation), and currently serves as consultant for the Kamwe Old Testament translation. He is a lifelong lover of Paul’s Letters.

    Goodday Prof, I am a young Nigerian from Michika. I learnt about your wonderful contributions to the growth and development of the gospel to my people, the Kamwes from my late father (Andrew Kwada Zirafilli Delia). May the good Lord continue to bless you and your family. Its indeed mind thrilling that you speak and write the Kamwe language so perfectly. Also learnt you are a Zira! Sir do you have any write ups about the history of the Kamwes? and were you also the gifted white missionary artist (fine artist) that visited and lived in Michika? Warmest regards and God bless sir!
