Pat and Melenda Edmiston are missionaries with Wycliffe – Partners in Bible Translation, nondenominational mission organization dedicated to translating the Scriptures and teaching people to read and write in their own language. Pat and Melenda serve in the country of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Here’s an excerpt from their latest newsletter:
