Summer, School, Secretary, Sower

We enjoyed a picnic and making sand castles on the beach of the river in our town, a last summer outing before school
At the river which divides Croatia from Bosnia. The city brought in sand from the sea, complete with shells!

PRAYER REQUESTS:

  1. Praise God for a good start to the school year. Pray for Pam for much wisdom and strength as she teaches Daniel and Ariela and as they study Croatian. Pray for Kirsten to adjust well to BFA in Germany and grow academically, socially and spiritually
  2. Pray for Zoki and Todd, for continued progress in translating Bible stories into Ludari. Pray for God’s enablement that the stories would be accurate, clear and natural. Pray for 2 more translators who can work part time translating into Ludari.
  3. Praise God that Joy could be with us in Croatia. Pray for her time in Hungary and then back in Australia. Pray for wisdom and God’s provision for decisions regarding her future.
  4. Pray for 14 of us as Todd leads a Bible translation workshop at our church in Slavonski Brod next week where we will edit and check chapters from Luke 11-15 in 3 Roma languages. Pray for God’s Spirit to empower all and for accurate, clear and natural Bible translations in Gurbet, Arli and Chergash.
