As you can see in the top two pictures, we enjoyed celebrating Pamala’s birthday a couple weeks ago. We were even able to pull off a surprise party for her during the SHARE conference where good friends whom we don’t get to see often could be there! Speaking of SHARE, we had a great week as we always do […]

Last month, six Roma translators, a consultant, a consultant-in-training, a Croatian translator and I met at the Baptist Church here in Slavonski Brod to edit our translations of Luke 8-10 in 3 Roma languages.

Our friends at The Seed Company recently asked us, “What prayers were answered from last quarter (2018)?” I wanted to share with you what we told them: Several of our Roma Bible translators are getting more confident and better in their translating.

Last Wednesday I drove over to Zoki’s house for our weekly session of translating Bible stories into his language (Ludari). As I drove up and parked, his wife came out and mentioned that Zoki wasn’t home yet, […]

The 12 Days of Christmas

Ariela’s Christmas recital in mid-December. It was a bit hard to find her on the stage among all the blonde-haired little girls in red and white but she is the one in the middle, sitting down, facing the camera with her right hand reaching to her Santa cap (see yellow arrow). Matthew carried over from […]

P.S. Prayer request for end of 2018

As a P.S. to the post I wrote an hour ago, I wanted to pass on a prayer request. One of our dear supporting churches, a very small fellowship in central Iowa, which had faithfully supported us financially each month for the past 25 years, had to close its doors in 2018. They were able […]
