Supported Worker: Wes & Nancy Collins
Countries: Guatemala, Peru, United States of America
Details: Praise God for the wonderful trip to Guatemala to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Mam New Testament. The celebration included lots of Mam music, Scripture readings, Bible memory, preaching along with games and contests. They were further blessed by hosting their daughter Amalia and her husband and two daughters. Pray for Wes as he writes a book on the history of reading and writing in Mam. The history is quite detailed and complex. His purpose in writing it is to build appreciation for Mam literacy, language, and culture. That affects people’s view of the value and interest in Mam and, hopefully, motivates them toward reading and appreciating the Scriptures, which was also the purpose of the 20th anniversary celebration. Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region (province of China) (Asia). There is a significant turning to Christianity in the north, along the Yellow River where many Han immigrants live. Christian ministry to the poor has yielded great response among farmers and working-class people. Pray for the formation of churches where the many new believers can be led in discipleship and study of the Bible. From Operation World DVD-ROM 2010, www.operationworld.org
