The Merey are a group of several thousand people living in a mountainous area of the Far North Province of Cameroon. Christianity is well implanted, though the wider area is predominately Muslim. Translation work began in the later 1980s when Beat Haller, a translator in the neighboring Zulgo language helped a Merey man work with the Zulgo translator to convert the New Testament from Zulgo to Merey. Sadly, both these men died before the work was able to advance further. The Merey translation committee chose a replacement, Eli Doumok, to continue the work. The Merey describe themselves as a gentle and faithful people.
