Hidden progress in the parentheses
This morning we received an update from our partners in PNG listing the translators who have arrived for final checking of Philippians and John 1-8. Translators from all ten active translation projects are there. But these stood out in the list:
· Arop – Emil, Peter, Vianney (trainee)
· Malol – Petrus, Michael (trainee)
· Goinri – Dominic, Jonathan, Papson (trainee)
· Rombar – James, Otto, Adrian (trainee)
We are so excited to see these four translation teams adding new translators as trainees. The experienced translators are training new translators so they can free up more of their own time to help translators in other languages.
This is the kind of multiplication of translators and translations we wanted to see happen when we first started this multi-language translation project.
Next week as the actual final checking sessions begin, I'll be following along, helping the Arop, Malol, and Sissano translators address any opportunities for improvement that are found in their translations.
Thank you for your partnership with us in helping to multiply translators and translations. May the Lord get all the glory.
Serving our King together,
John Nystrom (& for Bonnie)
