Just a quick update on things here. This time without travel continues to be a huge blessing in that we are able to concentrate on some key projects right here at our desks.
The final chapters of the manual are in sight! Chapter 13, which covers the printing of all the literacy materials, is nearly done and ready to send to the literacy team for their input. This leaves four more chapters to finish this project. Then the book will be translated into several main languages so that it can be used by teams speaking, Spanish, Portuguese, French, etc.
Literacy Training Videos
As the oversight team considered where the literacy videos will fit into their overall training program, we were given a later deadline to have all the presentations revised. Now we have until October to get them ready for videoing. This was great news as it allows us to focus first on completing the Literacy Manual and then doing a careful job on the presentations.
Future Literacy Software Project
As we think of the future, it has become evident that there is a need for another part of the literacy software. This would be software that helps teams transition from the local language to the national language spoken in the country. As plans begin to come together, pray for wisdom, personnel, and the finances for this vital need.
Please join us in prayer for:
- for God’s guidance with words and creativity in communicating the technical and practical details in the Literacy Manual
- wisdom & unity as we work with our international literacy team through the internet
- hearts that seek Him in everything we do
