When you are thirsty, you get water to drink. Recently we went almost 8 weeks without measurable rain. Fortunately we still had some in the tanks. But what if there was no water? What if you saw others readily able to get a drink, but you could not? In many ways we westerners are like people who when we are thirsty for God’s word, we can turn to the scriptures at any time. I look around at tribes around us where there is no Bible, no living water for them to drink from. They are the Kove and the Anem peoples. Currently our tribe, the Lusi are in that same camp.
However, we are making progress. So far we have 2% of the Old Testament or 35% of the book of Genesis translated and awaiting checking. It is a small step, but very worth it. The Lusi people helping us with the translation have told us that they are excited to see God’s Word in their own language.
Pray that God would provide Bible translators for the Kove and Anem peoples. They need God’s word too.
Pray for us as we translate the portions of the Bible needed for Phase I of the chronological teaching.
Pray for Rick as he works with our citizen partners as they write Bible Lessons in Lusi.
