Ah, Now we understand.

October 6, 2016

How to make a Bible translator happy? Let someone who just read a passage for the first time in their heart language, smile, and say, “Ah, now we understand.” I stayed sitting in my chair, but inside my heart, I was jumping around, doing the happy dance!

The Onobasulu men arrived on Tuesday afternoon. We began work on Wednesday. We had a celebration dinner Wednesday evening that we are all here and working. We worked today. By the end of the day, we had read and discussed from the introductory remarks to chapter 6 verse 37. Our consultant remarked that this brings us about one quarter of the way through the book of Luke.

We will probably work a few hours Saturday as well as tomorrow. Then all of next week, including Saturday if needed. Howard Oates our consultant leaves that following Monday, the 17th of October.

Here are from left to right: Howard Oates, our consultant; Joseph Hambowali, Onobasulu translator; then the 3 Onobasulu men helping, Felix Weibo, Cedric Jack, and Dickson Wadga.

Thanks for praying for all of us. Pray for good health, and for the equipment to continue to work well. Pray for our families back in our various homes of Australia, Walagu and other Onobasulu villages, and the USA. Pray for my mom who fell over the weekend, and is now in a physio-therapy rehab hospital in Arlington. The news about my mom was really hard to accept well from the other side of the world. So, yes, pray for peace and protection for all of the team and families!
