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 […]

Celebrating 25 years since we first moved overseas (The Prices Write, April 2019, part 1)

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 […]

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.

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 […]
