“When I hear it in my language…” (The Prices Write, June 2019, part 2)

This Monday, as Nedeljko began to read aloud from Luke 3 in the Bayash Roma language, he hesitated. With emotion, he said “When I hear God’s Word in my Roma language, it speaks to me more powerfully than in Croatian.” Once again, he was moved by the power of the Bible in his mother tongue. […]

When is a story not a story, and a seed not a seed? (The Prices Write, May 2019, part 2)

The other day we translated the first draft of the 21st Bible story in the Ludari language. This story in the series is not actually a story but rather a lesson which bridges the gap between the 20 stories from the Old Testament and the 29 from the New Testament in order to explain how […]

Christmas in March? (The Prices Write, April 2019, part 2)

Recently we have been translating Luke chapters 1-2 in four Roma dialects, which tell about the birth of John the Baptist and of Jesus. These are very difficult chapters to translate because of the extensive use of poetry. We had waited until the translators had some experience under their belts translating Luke 4-10 which is […]

One of the Roma Bible translators for the Bayash language recently preached at a Roma church in NW Croatia (pictured below). He preached in Croatian on John 11:25-26, “I am the resurrection and the life.” During the sermon he had me stand up and read these verses in Bayash–an exciting moment as I shared with […]

It takes a village (The Prices Write, February 2019, part 1)

It takes a village, so the saying goes. Or at least, it takes a family. Let me explain. 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, […]

“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 […]
