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.

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 […]

Last month, six Roma translators, a consultant, a consultant-in-training, a Croatian translator and I met at the Baptist Church here in Slavonski Brod to edit our translations of Luke 8-10 in 3 Roma languages. We met for six days. After devotions and prayer each morning, we spent the rest of the day going verse-by-verse over […]

“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 […]
