Final Translation Check Starting
Today our final check on the book of Mark starts. A translation consultant will be coming in and we will be working on the check for about a week. Right now the field is very short of Translation Consultants but Linda Krieg generously offered to do the check for us even though she has been really busy. Please pray the check would go well so we will be able to give out the book of Mark to the believers before we leave for furlough in 2 weeks.
For a couple months now David has been training 3 of the believers to be Bible teachers. David first teaches them the Bible lesson then they take it home to study then on Sundays they team teach with David. Just recently David has been letting the 3 teachers do the Sunday teaching. We thank the Lord for these guys and we know God will to continue His work of building the Simbari church, even while we are away.
Yes, it’s that time again. We leave the bush on May 26th and will arrive LAX on May 31st. Mom and Dad Ogg helped us find a mini-van that will be waiting for us when we get home. God has also provided some furniture for us to use during the year we are home too. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
In His Love,
David and Shari Ogg
(Esther, Simon, Rachel and Jason)
Praise and Prayer:
- PRAISE for how God is supplying our furlough needs: vehicle, furniture etc.
- PRAISE for the Simbari Bible teachers who can take over teaching in our absence.
- PRAY for the translation check starting today.
- PRAY for good health for our family when it’s time to travel. Some colds and coughs have been going around and we don’t want to get quarantined somewhere along the trip.
