We’re happy to announce that the Lord has blessed us with another little one on the way. (At least we think it’s just one, although after last time we aren’t taking anything for granted!) I’m due June 14, so I’m about 5 weeks along right now. I’m already very sick with all-day nausea just like I was last time. We’d appreciate your prayers. I’ve had to stop any formal language study for the time being. Just trying to keep my family fed and the house work done is more than I can handle most days. Cooking is my least favorite job, but there aren’t any restaurants, fast food places, or tv dinners in here. I probably have another couple months of being sick if it’s the same as last time. Hopefully after that I’ll be able to get back into language study.
Speaking of language study, we’re excited that Rachel (DJ’s sister and our teammate) has just completed the final level of her formal language study. That means that she’s fluent enough in Hobongan to start translating Scripture. Please pray for her and all the Hobongan believers who will be helping with the translation as they get started on this long and difficult but thrilling and life-changing process. It has taken 2,000 years for the Bible to make it all the way to this remote part of the jungle, but soon our Hobongan brothers and sisters will be able to read it for themselves in their own heart language. Your prayers are an essential part of what’s happening here.
