What do our Roma Bible translations look and sound like?

We’re back in the States for a month but unfortunately won’t be able to visit all of you in person. We wanted to share an update on the Roma Bible translation ministry we are doing in Croatia and Serbia so we’ve prepared this 10 minute video. Watch this video to see and hear what the […]

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

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 […]

Answered prayers & current prayer requests

Answered prayers & current prayer requests

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

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)

“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 […]

History in the Making (The Prices Write, November 2018, part 1)

“How do we say ‘beginning’?” “Where is the ‘ä’ letter?” “Go ask mom how you say “dark”. “How would we say “formed”? These were some of the questions and remarks they made to each other, their faces intent on the screen, leaning in, pecking out the letters on the keyboard, as a half dozen Ludari […]

Thank you for praying for the translation workshop

Thank you for praying for the translation workshop

Thank you for praying over the last 11 days for our Bible translation workshop. With our consultant from The Seed Company we checked, proofread, edited and improved the translations of Luke chapters 6-8 in four Roma dialects (Arli, Bayash, Chergash and Gurbet). Two of the days were held in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, while […]
