Dear Praying Friends,
Successful Trip to Paraguay, South America: My trip to Paraguay was long and tiring but the joy of preaching and making new friends soon overshadowed all other discomforts. Their enthusiasm to learn the process of a new Bible translation in the Guarani language made it easy to challenge and teach them. They had many questions but our experience with other languages and countries allowed me to give them the confidence needed to press forward. We set up a time in August, 2019 when we would return to review some of their work. Please add them to your prayer list as they will be in great need of your prayers..
Telugu Bible for India…I was able to fly to Dallas to meet with missionary Rufus Saripalli and his pastor recently. We discussed the printing and distribution of the Telugu Bible in India and will start to secure prices from several Indian companies for the best price and quality. Over 100 million people speak this language. A dedication service will be held early 2020.
Ewe/French John & Romans and French whole Bibles for Togo, West Africa Finished: Soon these Bibles will be shipped to Togo, please pray for a safe arrival and their distribution. The translators continue to translate the rest of the New Testament.
