Here’s or latest update, August 15, 2015 :: We write to you to keep in touch so that you can understand a little about what is happening with us. If you are anything like us, you know that we can’t relate everything that we are going through, but we have heard enough from the Word to be reminded that the Lord is attentive and answering the deep needs in our hearts and families just as he is with yours.
We hope that we have made it clear that we are most grateful to you for the prayers and gifts that you continue giving us for our support. It is amazing and very encouraging.
We are continually reminded of the changing times, especially in our work. Sometimes we see remote peoples even being exposed to technology that will eventually change their lives. Perhaps these changes should give us a sense of urgency so that the Bible will be able to be read easily in all languages soon. There are many yet to be put into writing. I can’t imagine it, but someday maybe a tribal person will be studying the lessons we are translating on a Kindle in his own language. Our translation team—Rute, Lailma, Claudio, and Giovana—are working on new material right now—Books 5 & 6 of the new series. There will be long hours of translation checks, corrections, and formatting to do by five other team members, Thiago, Rejaneide, Emilia, Pércio and me. These are lessons in Romans and Ephesians for new believers. Thank you so much for praying for our team and this project.
As you probably know, Gwen and I were able to attend the celebration of my dear Mom’s 100th birthday in March in Brazil.
We four siblings, some of the grandchildren, and great grandchildren along with 350 people were there for the praise service in thanks to the Lord for Mom’s life and service. For the last couple of months, Mom’s health has deteriorated due to congestive heart failure. My sisters, Carleen and Beth, and their husbands, and more recently our baby brother Hudson, are faithfully providing the 24 hour care she needs at this time. The local doctor has helped them set up what he calls a “domestic ICU” in her bedroom, making it possible for her to remain at home. Dr. Fernando has shown interest in understanding why both Mom
and her caregivers have such peace. Let’s pray for him.
Once again, we thank you for your love and care for us.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
Calvin and Gwen Taylor
