The last few weeks have been the most productive for me translation-wise since before my mom fell last July. Thank you for your prayers for us.
Arop translator Emil Ninkure and I have finished the first draft of Galatians 1-3 and John 20-21. The next step is for some to other teammates to check them, then Emil and I will polish them up.
Please pray we have these chapters ready for the translators before I leave for Wisconsin around April 19.
I wasn't feeling well last weekend and thought I might have COVID-19. But the test was negative. So this weekend we can head to Georgia as planned to see our kids and grandkids and my nephew's new baby. This is my mom's first chance to see her fifth great-grandchild. Please pray for safe travels and good health for us all.
Praise the Lord for progress on the typesetting software. Many things work now that did not work in January! The picture above is a typeset page of James in Arop and Tok Pisin. The caption is from James 3:3, "A quite small piece of metal causes a horse to do what you tell him to do."
So far I'm the only one testing the new typesetting software on diglots, so please pray for me and for the developers as I find the bugs and they fix them.
It's a privilege to partner with you in translating, typesetting, and many more things as we make God's word available to people who have never had it before in their language.
Serving our King together,
John Nystrom (& for Bonnie)
