Scripture Access for all…

Isaac came to the US from Egypt as a young man to find a better life for his family. He is a follower of Jesus and pastors an Arabic Baptist church in Murfreesboro, TN. He worked in the hotel business for several years until he opened a Greek sandwich shop. We ate at his shop (which was excellent) and shared with him about the Scripture resources available on in his language. He was very interested in the resources for children.

Gi, a young Chinese man, sat across from us at McD’s. Judy got into a conversation with him and found out he was a believer who had been in the US for 6 years going to the University. She showed him the SE website on his phone and he was very excited to see all the digital resources available in Mandarin, his mother tongue. He attends an English-speaking church in town because he wants to improve his English. We exchanged each other’s contact information. We hope to visit a local Chinese church with him next time we’re in town.

Thanks for praying for these opportunities and partnering with us!

Our goal…Bible access for all! Sharing the website is one way to make this happen. Today we found out about #illumiNations18, a gathering of Bible translation organizations working together for the same goal, Bible access for all! Wycliffe is one of the ten who are collaborating with unprecedented unity to see over 1 billion people gain access to God’s Word in a language and form they clearly understand. Praise God for their vision and leadership. What a privilege to share in the same goal!

We are thanking our Faithful Father for each new partner since we started posting the tiles. It’s so exciting!

Because of what we shared in our last email, about supporting survivors of hurricane Florence, we have set a new faith goal date of Nov. 1. At that time, we are trusting that our Wycliffe partnership team will be at 100% and we will be released to begin our new Scripture access work. Please begin praying with us for God’s direction as we plan where we will focus our efforts in 2019.

We are back in Tucson for now. We expect to be here until mid-November when we will need to travel back to NC for Jim’s trip to Papua New Guinea Nov. 28 to Dec 18. Jim and another JAARS Land Transportation trainer will be teaching a 4 wheel drive maintenance and driving course to national Bible translators.
