This season we are most thankful to God for his mercy and grace. Someone said that God has more mercy than we have sin. There is no sinner that he would not save if they would just ask him.
New Projects: This summer I was able to visit Ghana, West Africa which proved to be a most valuable trip. I was able to meet with pastors who’s concerns about their tribal languages were brought to my attention. The Twi, Ga, Ewe of Ghana, and Fante are four languages that need a new translation. I have been in contact with the Ghanaian pastors and made a trip to North Carolina to meet with one of them. Many of them speak all four of these languages plus English. They are eager to meet and discuss the next steps to produce a faithful, accurate and trustworthy translation. Prayerfully this will take place next year.
Funds Needed: Would you like to be part of someone getting a John and Romans, New Testament, or whole Bible? Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
At present we are raising funds for the printing needs for the bilingual Swahili/English John and Romans for Kenya and neighboring countries of Africa, the Ewe New Testament and French whole Bibles for Togo. Our goal is $60,000. Would you pray about partnering with us in these worthy projects?
Trip to Kenya East Africa: The dedication service of the new translation of the John and Romans in Swahili is set for January 22, 2023. Preparations are in progress to print 1,000 books for this special occasion and then 100,000 to be shipped later. The dedication service of this new translation will be a great highlight for all those who have been involved in this project. We have invited two other translation teams from Uganda and western Kenya to attend so that we can meet with them and discuss and address their progress and concerns with their translations.
Prayer Request: Connie came through her hernia surgery just fine, thank you for praying. Also, the condition of her macular degeneration is stable. Please pray for the many translations going on around the world.
Connie and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with His blessings and opportunities to serve Him better. Thank you for your prayers and support.
Until all may hear,
Stephen R. Zeinner
