Five hours after surgery, John was awake, breathing tube out and sitting in a chair!
Heart Surgery Successful

Dr. Ofenloch was able to repair John's mitral valve with no "regurgitation". 

When he woke up, I asked John how he felt. He stuck his tongue out. I told him to fake a smile for the camera. He is in a lot of pain but is getting great care and hitting all the milestones for recovery on the early end of normal.

We can't thank you enough for your prayers for all of us. 

"Oh the Love of My Redeemer" by Josh Caterer has brought great joy to me this week.

Serving our King together,
Bonnie (& for John)


Praise for the skill and wisdom of John's surgeon.

Praise that John's mom should be released tomorrow. 

Praise that we were able to get Brianna (and her two sons) a flight to Florida today. She will help care for John's mom while I am at the hospital with John. Her husband will be driving down on Monday as originally planned.

What we do 
Since 1987 we have been training local Papua New Guinean church leaders to translate the Bible into their own languages and coaching them through the process from first draft to publication.

We currently serve in the Aitape West Translation Project, which is producing and distributing Bible translations in 11 languages in print, electronic, audio, and video form; training local people to use the translations; and training the local translators to help other translators do the same in still more languages.

To learn more
We have written about how a tsunami changed the face of Bible translation in Papua New Guinea in our bookSleeping Coconuts. It is available here on Kindle or here in paperback.
