Thank you for praying for yesterday’s outreach in two villages. We had about 75 kids in Sisak and another 25 or so in Palanjek. Sisak is a Ludari Roma village and Palanjek is a Bayash Roma village. For the program, we sang songs, acted out the story of Zaccheus (Adam Anderson did a stellar jobContinue reading “Summer outreach, day 1: Sisak and Palanjek”

“It makes me so happy to read the Gospel in my mother tongue” (The Prices Write, August 2019, part 1)

I (Todd) recently met with Nedeljko (pictured above), and his daughters, Nataša and Renata to check our translation of Luke 1-11 into the Bayash language, and to test it out with listeners from their village. As Nedeljko read it in his heart language, he got goose bumps and was choked up. His face lit upContinue reading ““It makes me so happy to read the Gospel in my mother tongue” (The Prices Write, August 2019, part 1)”

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.

We had waited until the translators had some experience under their belts translating Luke 4-10 which isContinue reading “Christmas in March? (The Prices Write, April 2019, part 2)”
