As a team we are working on Bible translations in 11 languages, but many more language communities in the Aitape West area have no Bible in their language and no translation underway.
Many of the translators we and the Arop translators have trained now want to help start translations in those neighboring languages. To free up their time, they are recruiting new translators from their own communities to help finish their translations.
Vianney and Andrew are the first fruits of their recruiting efforts.
As you gather for Thanksgiving, would you thank the Lord for Vianney and Andrew and the older translators who recruited them?
Please pray that they grow in the Lord as they grow as translators, and that many more would join them.
And please pray for the experienced translators and our team leaders as they continue to make plans to expand into more languages in the area.
Thank the Lord with us that my mom is home again after almost a week in the hospital. She had a small stroke (a TIA), a very mild heart attack, and a serious Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
Please pray for mom's continued recovery and for wisdom for Bonnie and me as we care for my mom, Bonnie's parents and her two brothers.
We thank the Lord that we can continue to help the translation team from here in Florida as we care our family. Thank you for all you do to help make that possible.
Serving our King together,
John Nystrom (& for Bonnie)
