New friends that are spreading the Gospel

Today was a good day, we had the pleasure of having lunch with Bill and Lenore Martin. They had invited us over for lunch and fellowship. The kids got to go out to the garden and pick veg tables. They picked cucumbers, onions,, carrots , and squish. In their garden they had watermelon, cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, and other types. They had different types of flowers for the bees and also had sunflowers that were beautiful.

It was a good day of fellowship. This family has served the Lord and continues to through a ministry called Wycliffe.Their vision is to see the Bible translation program in progress in every language still needing one by the year 2025. Lenore was able to tutoring kids and development the Adapt it translation software tool.

I Pray that who ever reads this will keep them in prayer, these our things that they want us to pray for.

Pray that, according to His promise, the Lord will "do more good to us than ever before (Ezek 36:11)

Pray for the Lord to supply additional prayer and financial partners in such a way that we can proclaim (as Paul did) with confidence that "You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God."(2 Cor 9:11)

Pray the the translators who are working in difficult places around the world, that their tools (including software tools) will work well as they translate God"s word for those still waiting for it.

Continue to pray that Chales will have the resources he needs to coordinate Adapt It training and Scirpture use for translation programs on Manus island in PNG.

Pray for the others on the Adapt It team (Bruce Waters, Graeme Costin and Bob Buss), that they will continue to make good progress even though my contribution will be limited while I am working full-time on partnership development.

If any one wants to give a Tax- deduction gifts should be made payable to Wycliffe Bible Translators, with a separate note designating "for Bill & Lenore Martin.
I'm so thankful to know this couple and help by praying for them.And being part of spreading the Gospel.
