Jason & Shirley were the first white people the Tala Andig of that remote region had ever seen. Some of those people had never even seen a logging truck.
The Birkins moved into the jungles during the mid 80’s and have labored there faithfully ever since. Today there is a strong church who now, for the very first time, will be able to open up and read a New Testament in their language.
Pictured here is the very first bound copy of the Tala Andig New Testament. As you know from our last update, Jason & Shirley spent several days with our partners Ron & Michelle Jennings, formatting the layout of the recently completed translation.
Lance has been busy printing copies on our big printer and now that a number of copies are printed, Higaunon believers are binding the New Testaments. It has been neat to work together as a team in seeing this job accomplished.
Please pray with us for the completion of this project. We have experienced quite a number of paper jams. Ron and Lance have looked for the cause and think it’s a combination of the quality of the paper we’re using and the humidity. One thing is for certain, the enemy of our souls does NOT want this printing to happen!
Please pray that we’ll get all copies printed and bound by the deadline. That’s a month away from now so there “should be” plenty of time.
Rejoice with us and the Tala Andig church as they receive their first completed copies of the New Testament in their language!
Thank you for your partnership in this ministry!
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura for all of us here who are working together for the furtherance of Christ’s kingdom.
