1. CILTA students graduate on December 13. Pray for them as they seek assignments from their churches and mission agencies. They hope and plan to be involved in Bible translation and community development aimed at promoting the Scriptures among the cultures that speak the non-dominant languages of the world. Pray that they serve the Lord effectively and that they would be well supported and prayed for.
2. Nancy and Wes plan to visit their middle daughter, Amalia, and her husband and their two daughters this Christmas. Pray for the church’s missionary families. May the advent of Jesus be both a family and church celebration.
Pray for Byron. He is extremely active as a Mam pastor, literacy promoter and writer of Mam books; plus he has a weekly radio program and helps on the translation of the Mam Old Testament. He has good people with him, but leadership often falls to him. Pray for his health, his family, his Spirit, his strength, his vision and his motivation. Pray that he can attract some disciples to help share the load and the ministry.
1. The last week of the course I am teaching in Peru will be taught online from North Carolina, using some kind of face-time software. The course ends October 9. This is a first for me, and it may have repercussions for taking training far beyond the traditional classroom I presently have six students studying to be Bible translators.
2. After eight years of exclusively teaching latinos and gringos, SIL is sponsoring a linguistics introductory course for South American Indians who are working as Bible translators and literacy promotores. Dates are still flexible, but we’re starting to work on budget and curriculum. Pray that we give students what they need for translating into their own language.
