John and Susan – Translating the Bible in South Central Asia.


Dear friends,

Praise God with us!  We finished checking Ephesians with the MAT team this past week.  Last time I erroneously reported that Ephesians was the last book of the New Testament left for the MAT team.  I was wrong.  They still have PhilemonJude and Revelation left to finish.  I had looked at Philemon back in 2016 with the translator we called “Uncle”.  He is now with the Lord and the other team members have since tested and revised Uncle’s work.  On Monday we hope to take a final look at Philemon.  Jude and Revelation will have to wait until later in the year.

Sunday night (Monday morning ‘there’) I will start checking Galatians with the LOW team.  We had planned to do this face to face last March but those plans fell through.  The team cannot meet together, but two of the three team members are in places where they have internet access.  I will try to connect with those two and work through the issues that I saw when I was preparing to check with them last March.  If the connection is good and we are able to communicate well, I may be able to do the check of Galatians with the AP team that also got postponed.  This will also give us a glimpse as to how well we may be able to connect for a Romans workshop later in the year.

Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement.  I have had plenty to do.  Sometimes it gets to be too much for the eyes.

May the Lord bless you and fill you with His peace!
