The Translation for the dear P Nation is now off to the Publishers!!
A big PRAISE to the Lord for His great strength and guidance and wisdom and perseverance as HE has allowed us to cross the finish line on this long project. We are most thankful indeed. And so thankful too for all of you, for your love, your words of encouragement, your prayers, your partnering with us, and so much more. Thanks so much for being such a great team!!
The Holy Scriptures
The powerful truths of the Word of God were first introduced to these dear people back in 1983 when we began to teach them. And right along with that teaching was the translation of Scripture, first just for me since they hadn’t learn to read yet, and then for more and more of them as they learned. So these folks have had portions of Scripture in their hands for years now. The first book they got was of course Genesis, and then Exodus, but then soon it was material from the NT. Well, what a privilege now to give them the whole New Testament, and also many portions from the Old Testament. And as these precious books are distributed, how we praise God that His Word is not chained, or bound up, but rather alive and powerful, accomplishing that which God purposes. And how we thank God for the huge team that has been working together down through the years with us. We have had many dear coworkers, and of course the different consultants and software technicians and pilots and many others who have labored behind the scenes to bring this all to pass. How we praise God for each one!! And as we anticipate the disbursement of the Scriptures among these dear people, how we praise God that His Word is not chained or bound up or boxed in, but rather alive and powerful and very sharp, bringing deep conviction and repentance, accomplishing mighty things according to God’s purposes. No, it will not return unto Him void!!
