Pray for the Bible translation team’s progress

Several of them have learned to use ParaTExt which is a huge help […]

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 […]

“I understood every word.” (The Prices Write, January 2019, part 2)

“This is not our language. This is something else.” “I understand every word when you read it”. The first quote is from a man in our local Roma village when I sat next to him on his bed in their one-room dwelling, and asked him to read the story of Creation from Genesis 1 which […]

Translating the story of Noah’s flood (The Prices Write, part 2)

As I take the 10 minute- drive to the Roma neighborhood, I pray that Z. & N. will be home and available to translate more Bible stories in Ludari. (In this culture, setting appointments is somewhat pointless, so we just visit them when we think they’ll be available.) There’s a light on when I pull […]
