Paulo is a Bible translator in Tanzania who is working on a translation of the Bible in his own language, Rangi. Recently he attended a chronological Bible storying conference. These conferences teach people how to tell stories from the Bible in a chronological way, so they can share the Gospel in oral cultures where storytelling comes more naturally than reading and writing.
During this workshop, the Holy Spirit opened Paulo’s eyes to see that he was depending on his works for salvation. He discovered that salvation only comes through the grace of God by the sacrifice Christ made on the cross.
Today, Paulo can’t stop talking about God’s grace and sharing it with everyone. A Wycliffe colleague who works with Paulo recently shared, “I have often glanced over at him (Paulo) while we are working and his eyes are filled with tears. He just shakes his head and says, ‘Grace, God’s grace.’ It overwhelms him.”

In the two sessions of week-long Connection programs this month, we will host about 40 colleagues and their families from all around the U.S.A and the world. Your partnership with my Wycliffe ministry allows me to serve these co-workers on your behalf. Thank you for that privilege. It is always a blessing to hear stories about the faithfulness of God and about lives that are being transformed as people have access to the Bible in the language of their hearts – the language in which they think and dream and pray.
I also look forward to a very quick visit to Indianapolis, worshiping with the Solid Word Bible Church
Brothers and Sisters on Sunday, February 15, as a part of their Missions Month.
