what does chuwabo sound like?

I have been editing some short Bible stories that one of our translators recorded in Chuwabo. Here’s a little taste of the language I am learning!

Mwandiya wa Nowe

Dhivira viaka vinjidhene waikala maziza menjene adudduwile wa Adamu. Attuyaba vina ahittega, kamwiwelele Mulugu. Attu etene aimala odhala dhottega, Mulugu wahilamulela watoloca na muneri. Ovano mwali mulobwana m’modha bai wamukwela na wamwiwelela Mulugu, n’zina nae wacemelriwa Nowe. Mulugu ologa na Nowe wila asasanye mwanddiya wila iyene na amudhe avolowemo wila avuneye. Nowe wanlaleya sabwa ya oligana wa Mulugu, mwari mwa mudhidhi mwinjene wasasanya iyene mwanddiya. Mbwenyi attu kafuna orumela mipaganyo dha Mulugu. Wila attiye dila dhawa dhabure na avuneye mwa muneri.

  1. Of the different places I stayed in Mozambique, Quelimane was probably my favourite. Plus that church was really fun to walk through. Are you there there just to learn Echuwabo?
