In Challenging Times Like These
As you can imagine, I cannot travel and yet I am giving my input as a Bible Consultant to meet the needs of translators waiting for their completed scriptures to be approved for publishing. Thankfully, because of the worldwide internet, I am involved in a translation project in Southeast Asia. They have published their New Testament and are beginning to work on the Old Testament now. We are working through their translation of Genesis at 8:00 AM their time (9:30 PM, my time). We connect up through Zoom and discuss any questions I have or problems I may have detected in their translation. They are a very capable group and we have completed the first 14 chapters. Pray that we continue to make good progress and have good communication.
