I’m currently preparing to teach a class to our Roma Bible translators on the topic of “sociolinguistics”. What is sociolinguistics? I’m so glad you asked! One simple definition is “sociolinguistics is that part of linguistics which is concerned with language as a social and cultural phenomenon.” Practically speaking, it is a study of how weContinue reading “Lost (and found) in translation: Installment #7: seed pickers & babblers; prayer request for my mom, for Bible distribution, pics from Ariela’s birthday”

The (belated) Prices Write (August 2020, part 1)
Dear praying friends, I apologize for being so late with this prayer letter. Thank you all for praying for us faithfully. Matthew’s surgery in San Francisco on July 10 went well. We won’t know the long-term results for at least a few months and more likely for 1-2 years since nerves re-grow at a veryContinue reading “The (belated) Prices Write (August 2020, part 1)”

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 fromContinue reading “The 12 Days of Christmas”
Ariela’s 7th birthday party
We are back from the Roma Bible camp and enjoyed having a birthday party for Ariela here at our house. The theme was Elsa, from Frozen. Lenna made the cake and Abigayl and Kirsten made the “pin the tiara on Elsa game”.
Ariela’s song, “Don’t try to tell me that God is dead…”
Ariela learned this song at the SHARE conference. The words are: “Don’t try to tell me that God is dead, He woke me up this morning. Don’t try to tell me that God is dead, He lives within my heart. He opened up my blinded eyes, and set me on the way. Don’t try toContinue reading “Ariela’s song, “Don’t try to tell me that God is dead…””
Having friends over, playing in the park
We had three families over to celebrate Mother’s Day and two birthdays and the kids had a great time hanging out.
The other day, Ariela (3), climbed up into the chair in my office where I have my quiet times. She opened her orange Gideon’s New Testament and ‘read’. She told her dollies to be quiet while she read. So cute!
More quotes from the kids
Daniel, 6: “I can’t be creative. I ran out of duct tape.” Ariela, 3 (as could only be said by an MK in our type of ministry): “Knock, knock.” Todd: “Who’s there?” Ariela: “Beggars”.
