Luke 1-2 & 50 Bible stories printed & distributed in Gurbet & Arli

Before I had to quickly leave Croatia to come to the States after Matthew’s accident, we had been waiting for the printers in Serbia to print a booklet of Luke chapters 1-2 and a book of 50 illustrated Bible stories in three of the Roma languages (Gurbet, Arli and Chergash). These have been printed, andContinue reading “Luke 1-2 & 50 Bible stories printed & distributed in Gurbet & Arli”

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 howContinue reading “When is a story not a story, and a seed not a seed?

Several of them have learned to use ParaTExt which is a huge helpContinue reading “Answered prayers & current prayer requests”

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,Continue reading “It takes a village (The Prices Write, February 2019, part 1)”
