God’s amazing wisdom and power can be seen in every area of life. Look at vastness of the universe with its stars and planets! Or the tiny perfection of a molecule. Or the intricacies of the human body.
Speechless by languages
In the same way, we have the privilege of observing God’s intelligence and design in the world’s languages. Each one is so unique but perfectly logical and following its own patterns. Even the exceptions in languages are predictable! That’s our God.
First trip in 2017
We appreciate your prayers as we serve missionary teams, local churches and literacy consultants around the world, sharing God’s Written Word in these beautiful languages and then making sure people can read and understand the translated Word of God through literacy materials and classes.
We are traveling to England and the missionary training center for Europe. The teachers we have been training over the past years are leading the literacy course in preparation to teach on their own in the future! While in England a couple from W. Africa will be joining us to prepare the same literacy training in French. Their course will begin in Africa later this year.
- please pray for Jerry’s back. He’s gotten some relief from pain and numbness with cortisone shots. Pray for God’s healing touch.
- that we will keep right priorities even in a busy schedule surrounded by people: God first place in our hearts, time in His Word, our marriage and good communication
- pray for opportunities to encourage and invest in the students’ lives as they are preparing for ministries all around the world
- that those we are training will be equipped to be great literacy teachers for future classes
Then we continue on to Papua New Guinea (an island country directly north of Australia). There we will be training the literacy team to use the literacy software.
- pray for our health and rest. That will be a 10 hour time zone change from England time. We will also be moving from England’s cold weather to PNG’s tropical climate. That’s a lot of changes without much time to rest before we are teaching again!
- pray for God’s wisdom as we answer questions and begin the training of the literacy team with the software
