JESUS Film preparation: Asia

Pray for those preparing to record the "JESUS" film at the end of June. They need 19 voice actors for the various parts. Thank God that 15 new readers came for a reading fluency workshop recently. This should provide them with several people to read parts. Pray for wisdom as they select the final set of voice actors. This same translation team is translating additional books, including John, 1 and 2 Timothy, and 1 John. Pray for them as they translate.

"It is so important for Deaf people to have the Bible in their own language. A lot of Deaf people can read, but it is very difficult for them because it’s not their first language and they would only understand a portion. With the Video Bible in Japanese Sign we can help them to understand so much more."
