Sometimes we take for granted having the Bible in our own language and being able to read it. But the Tigak people don’t. Here’s an update from Ned and Linn Beall, our friends and fellow missionaries from Papua New Guinea:
We sure appreciate your prayers. Literacy is going well and the students are learning more each day and are mostly consistent in attending. Aimee Hendrick will continue to teach the first literacy class every week day in the mornings for four months. The students are 20s to 40s in age. It is great to see the younger men being excited about learning to read. We are praying that as they learn to read they will be motivated to spend time in God’s Word and desire to be leaders and teachers in upcoming literacy classes!
Ned’s translation check went very well. He had II Corinthians, I,II and III John and most of the Gospel of John checked. The exciting news is that this brings us to 60% of the Tigak New Testament completed and consultant checked!! It is very encouraging to see more of the Tigak Bible being completed.
