“Our vision is that one day every addict in the world has the chance to experience our message in his or her own language and culture and find the opportunity for a new way of life.” – A Vision for NA Service
At the moment the Finnish LTC is working on the 6th Edition of the Basic Text. All the personal stories are translated. A workgroup is now reviewing and editing the 5th edition. The estimate is that the whole book should be ready by the end of 2019, and then it will be sent to WSO for proofreading and typesetting.
“We don’t have that much literature in Finnish. Most of the IP’s, Basic Text, Step Working Guide and It Works How and Why. I remember the struggles my home group had with the traditions before we had the IWHW in Finnish. It was so emotional to finally have the finished beautiful green and gold book in my hands.”
