God has answered your prayers by providing a good first week at Equip, Wycliffe's new-member orientation. Everyone has been healthy enough to be at all the sessions and we are nearing the weekend when we may rest and catch up some. Please continue to pray for stamina and wisdom for us all. Thank you.
It is always exciting to hear the stories of how God has led folks into their new roles as colleagues in Bible translation. Your partnership with my Wycliffe ministry through your prayers and finances is helping send these new workers out. They have daunting tasks ahead of them as they ask God to provide for their needs through the gracious gifts of His people to Wycliffe. A portion of our job as trainers is to present tools that will be helpful to "the newbies" in sharing their story and inviting others to be a part of taking the Scriptures to those who do not yet have them in their heart language.
The joy is that we can share with them that God is faithful! In October, I asked you to pray about the monthly minimum budget increase for the coming year. In answer to your prayers, God is providing through new monthly financial partners, through others who have increased their contributions, and through some generous year-end gifts. I am grateful.
My prayer for you is that God would continue to grow your love for Him and for His Word. If there are other more specific things I can pray on your behalf, please let me know. It is an honor to partner with you as you have so faithfully partnered with my Wycliffe ministry.
