Dear Praying friends and family,
Here we are back at our Home Sweet Home after a wonderful trip to visit Doug and Nancy and their extended family in Milwaukee, as well as some other long-term friends. The Lord blessed our trip with some special times together. We were able to meet up with some prayer partners we’d never met face to face, celebrate 2 great-grandchildren birthdays and spent two days with Nancy’s parents who were some of our first co-workers in Asia-Pacific. We reminisced over a lot of shared memories of the Lord’s faithfulness in our lives. They were part of the team to open the Semandang tribal work, the first work that NTM entered in Asia-Pacific. It was really neat to reconnect with our grandchildren and the 5 great-grandchildren who are growing up so quickly. And great-grandpa got beat arm wrestling for the first time in history – by his 15-year-old great-grandson!
Doug and Nancy are getting ready to go back to Asia-Pacific and Greg and Pam are already back there and well into their respective ministries.
We are still in the process of preparing Jaruma Alatala, the Embaloh Bible, for reprinting. We have sent the PDF file a couple of times already to Snowfall Digital Printing for a final proof and we are still fine-tuning the results.
The Lord has answered a lot of prayer this month, from safety in all of our travels (including Doug’s and Greg’s family) and continued progress on the Embaloh Bible, good opportunities to share what God is doing around the world, etc. Thank you so much for being a vital part of our lives and ministry. The ministry involvement through prayer is not in vain, since our Father delights in hearing our heart cry and moving mountains to bring the Gospel to every people and nation on earth. That is why we are always so grateful for your partnership in prayer!
Praise & Prayer Requests:
- Praise that Greg’s visa extension already granted.
- Pray for Doug and Nancy as they get ready to leave for Asia-Pacific the first part of September.
- Pray for the Embaloh Bible version #4 and 5 being checked this week.
- Praise the Lord for the Prayer Partners God has raised up to partner with us.
Thank you for your faithful prayers,
Darcy, Ron, and Nita Berglund
