I've heard translations into Swahili and such are being made by missionaries but I don't know if/where they are online.

17? I was told that this site contained the Arabic version of the DL: can someone who reads Arabic confirm this?

My google translator tells me these are sacraments explained.

17. Swahili from orthodoxytz.com.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

When I've talked to one priest from Kenya he said when a member of a particular tribe enters the Seminary in Nairobi during his studies he has to translate services into his language.

They don't do it alone. They are overseen by the lecturers.
