Hurricane Irma

Truly thankful for God's grace. That's how we feel after Hurricane Irma. At home, power was out for only 11 hours and there are just a few shingles that need to be replaced. I am so grateful for the many prayers and texts and Facebook messages and your many encouragements.

There are still areas where power has not been restored. The Wycliffe Bible Translators campus has had interruptions in power even through the day yesterday, which has complicated preparations for the upcoming Equip. Yet we have been able to still make good progress, for which we are thankful.

As we were preparing yesterday, one of my tasks was to reconnect the audio equipment in our classroom. As it came time to test the computer connections, the video one of the "crew" members (that's us - the team that facilitates the programs) chose was this one. It summarizes our motivation to do what we do.

Tomorrow, we will greet 24 new Wycliffe missionaries and 12 of their children and begin their two-week Equip onsite orientation. Since they will live on-campus with us, we'd appreciate prayers that the power does stay on. Please also pray for our health and strength and that the "crew" would serve these new colleagues well. Your partnership through your gifts and prayers will now extend to all those who will someday have access to the Bible through their ministry. Thank you!
