The Vision 2000 is a compilation of the vision of a man, Lalo, from the New Testament of Lalo-Haitian Creole.
It was translated by Lalo and his son, Daniel.
In his vision, Lela says: I will become a teacher of Creole languages and Creole literature.
This is my mission.
I will teach all Creoles.
I shall become a translator.
I am the son of God, and I am a great man.
I do not want to live forever, but I want to make this world my kingdom.
The translation of the New Vision of Lela and Daniel is now available on the Internet.
The translation is a collaboration between Lalo’s wife and Daniel Haitien, and is being offered to the public as a free download.
Haitia’s son Daniel has published an article on the translation, which he describes as a “spiritual, historic and religious story, written by the author himself, and based on his own personal experience”.
It is based on the writings of a 19th-century Creole missionary named Lalo Tiwana.
The Vision 2000 was translated into English by the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa, and was published in 1999.
In 2007, the Haitians moved to Hawaiʼi from Trinidad.
They now live in a home in Honolulu.
