Established in 1946, the United Bible Societies (UBS) is the collective name for our fellowship of 147 individual Bible Societies working in over 200 countries and territories. Bible Societies share a common mission in the efficient use of God-given resources of placing the Word of God in the hearts and minds of the people they serve.
There is more than 100 years of history of organised Bible work in Laos. This can be traced back to 1902. During that time, the Bible work in Laos was part of The Bible Society of IndoChina (a branch of the British and Foreign Bible Society).
Subsequently, The Bible Society in Laos was established in 1965 but disrupted in 1975. At present, while there is no formal Bible Society in the country. Nonetheless, Scripture translation and production continues through partnership between the United Bible Societies and local churches. Our team in Vientiane continues with the same vision as our predecessors and colleagues around the world – to make the Word of God accessible to all peoples.
