Heidi was reaching for the kitchen timer so I suggested that she should go for the white one, not the pink one. These spiders aren’t dangerous, but timing isn’t everything and for some unknown reason it still isn’t pleasant to have one run up your arm.
Last week we went to town to have a break, buy supplies, and visit our co-workers there. This picture illustrates the changing world we live in. When we first moved into the village, very few kids had ever been out to town and adults only went occasionally. This is no longer the case. When I was at a store in town, I put a coin in the machine so that these Isnag kids could have a ride. When we flew back to the village on Thursday, the little girl was already there to watch the helicopter land.
While in town, I was able to finish the rough draft for the book of Galatians. We currently have Romans, Ephesians, and Galatians in the translation process and I’m starting on 1 Thessalonians. It is encouraging to see people using the translated portions. Heidi took this picture at the ladies’ Bible study last night.
Prayer and Praise: Please continue to pray for the translation team as we work to make God’s word accessible to the people here. Praise: We had a great time visiting our friends in town and were able to accomplish everything we needed to do there. Please pray that despite the changing times, that people will keep their faith in God who does not change. Thanks for your prayers!
God bless, Jonathan & Heidi
