I was so happy when Bonnie brought me home from the hospital Wednesday. Sunlight through the car window gave me a decorative stripe on my forehead. 
Home after surgery, thankful for so much

Thank you for praying for us this last week! 

This Thanksgiving, we are especially thankful for: 

  • Great healthcare, including excellent doctors, nurses and others
  • Family members who now live close enough to come for Thanksgiving

And we remain grateful for things we live with every year: 

  • Eternal life we have already begun to live
  • Important work that lasts forever in the eternal lives of the people we serve 
  • Wonderful, faithful partners 

May you enjoy a very thankful Thanksgiving weekend. 

Serving our King together,
John (& for Bonnie)

Praise and Prayer

Please praise the Lord with us for all of the above.

Please pray for my mom, who really wants to come home from the hospital today, which is a possibility. She has several health challenges. When she comes home, we need to help her stay hydrated, which she finds very difficult. 

Pray for me, that I will not "overdo it" as I begin the recovery phase. 

For the translators, who will continue to polish Philippians and parts of John's gospel through next week.

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.
