    Collins Family September 2016 Update

    Download a PDF of the Collins Family September 2016 Update here.

    Greetings to you from Lima, Peru. I’ve just finished my first week of classes. Nancy didn’t make the trip this time.

    We have 15 students studying at CILTA, a linguistics program open to all comers, but especially geared to those who want to work cross-culturally as Bible translators or literacy workers. We have some teaching assistants as well who are honing heir skills. 2016 marks ten years that Nan and I have been involved with CILTA. We were both here first semester, but I’m on my own for second.

    Collins Family September 2016 Prayer Requests

    Greetings from Peru.

    Here are a few prayer requests.

    1. Pray for Byron and Samuel as they lead their respective teams of Mam men and women in literacy and Old Testament translation projects. These projects are aimed at providing readers and followers of the Scriptures in their native language. There are approximately a half-million speakers of Mam in Guatemala

    2. Pray for Wes in Lima, Peru teaching Latino missionary candidates who are studying linguistics in order to learn some of the technical aspects needed for engaging people from minority cultures and languages who need the Scriptures in their own language in order to be able to understand the Gospel.

    Thanks,

    Wes

    Collins Family August 2016 Prayer Requests

    Greetings from North Carolina,

    Here are two requests for August:

    * CILTA students start second semester on August 15 and hit it hard for four more months. Pray for Wes as he teaches a course he hasn’t taught for ten years. May he remember well and be a help to students who are training to be Bible translators and Christian cross-cultural workers.

    * Pray for CILTA students in Lima, Peru as they study linguistics. They recently finished their first semester and have enjoyed a short break before hitting it hard again. May they learn what will be helpful to them for long-term ministry.

    Thanks so much,

    Wes
