Dear Friends at Hyde Park,
Thank you for your $831 gift in March.
One of my goals as a translation consultant is to make sure that translations are not only accurate, but also natural and clearly understood by the readers and listeners. Jesus said, “When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart.” (Matthew 13:19)
John helped us check several books of Scripture that had been translated into his language of Feni. This is what he had to say afterward:
“Checking all of these books has shown me how important it is to understand the big picture in Scripture. We went through the whole books of Romans, Luke and Ephesians. Now I can see how each of their parts is connected together. The Feni translation made all of those bits and pieces clear and understandable. And then, reading through each of the books gave me a better understanding of the whole message. I had never done that before.”
Thank you for helping us to make God’s Word available and understandable in so many languages.
