John and Susan – Translating the Bible in South Central Asia.
OCTOBER/NOVEMEBER 2019 UPDATE:
This is a very special day for some of our friends. Today the New Testament for the a group of people will be dedicated in central Asia. I met Sally from a group on this team back in 2008 at a training workshop for potential translation consultants. I got the privilege of helping the team with the translation of Romans in 2015. Then on Friday, October 18, the New Testament for the people of central Asia will be dedicated. I first met that team at a workshop in 2005 to translate Hebrews. We were together again when they translated the gospel of John at a workshop in 2011, and 2Corinthians in 2014.
I have begun preparing to check 2Corinthians and Acts with another team in northeast Asia. We will be working via Skype, WhatsApp and any other means available to us since I cannot be in country to work with the team face-to-face. Please pray that God will help us to communicate well, and our efforts will help produce a translation that speaks to the hearts of the these 2 language groups of people in 2 countries
Thank you so much for your love and prayers. May the Lord bless you and fill you with His peace!
