  • New CILTA Class

    Nine new students from Argentina, Mexico and Peru began the CILTA* 2015 course in March. Pray for good, clear and wise communication between the facilitators and the students, and for the students to make a quick adjustment to life in Lima.

  • How can they hear unless someone tells them? Honduras

    There are many sign languages in the world, not just one. Sign languages are distinct from spoken languages, with their own rich grammar and vocabulary. Pray for the Honduran Sign Language team and the National Council of Deaf Christian Leaders working to establish a Bible Translation project for their sign language, LESHO*. Praise God for the consultant help this group received in March. Pray that God will guide the team and provide needed funding for this project.

    *LESHO – Honduran Sign Language

  • They hear because someone is telling them

    LESSA* is the language of the Deaf in El Salvador. In March, a special event celebrated the publication of the second DVD of Bible Stories from the Life of Jesus, with the Deaf community. Another celebration is planned in two or three months with leaders and members of the Salvadoran Church. Pray for more Deaf people to find out about the translation project and use the Word in video. Ten more Bible stories are in the translation process and are being consultant checked. Pray that more church leaders and members will commit to supporting this Bible translation initiative.

  • Advances in Translation

    LETRA Paraguay thanks God for advances in the translation projects in their country. The Aché have the New Testament and the rough draft of Old Testament books from Genesis to Ruth. In the Toba language community, translators have completed the four gospels, Acts, Galatians and Ephesians. In Paraguayan Sign Language, 20 chronological Bible stories from the New Testament have been published in three books and three DVDs. The Ñandeva community has the Gospel of Mark and 14 chapters of the Gospel of Matthew. Pray that these Scriptures will be used effectively, and that the Lord will bring about spiritual growth in every community of Paraguay.

  • Missions Conference

    “Let all the peoples praise You” is the theme of a missions conference scheduled later this month in Guatemala. Invited guests are pastors and leaders of all the language communities in the country. FAM Guatemala will present Vision 2025* and promote the mission mobilization activities that are in development. Pray for additional scholarship funds to help motivate more pastors and leaders to attend the conference. Pray for promotion efforts for Bible translation and Scripture use in the local languages throughout the country.

Pray that team members will have good fellowship, and that God will lead the team as they seek His mission for the future. Pray that the invited guests and all the members of the staff will be a blessing to one another.

  • God’s Word and Easter

    Praise God for the Day of Resurrection! Throughout the world, people gather to worship Jesus Christ as risen Lord. This year, more people have the story of Easter in their own language than ever before! Give thanks to God for a language community* in South America, where people waited long to receive the New Testament in their language. Early this year, their longings were fulfilled. Pray for those who know Jesus, and for the many who have not yet received Him. Pray for God’s Word to impact the community with the resurrection power of salvation in many lives.

    *This is a sensitive language situation.

  • Training new Bible storying consultants

    Praise the Lord for those who are willing to share ther knowledge as Bible story crafters by being consultants for nearby language communities. Pray for the consultant-in-training workshop being planned for late March to develop the skills of these new consultants. Pray for safe travels for each one to the training site, and for good health as they work together. Ask God to watch over their families while they are away from home. And pray that each one make progress toward the goal of becoming a fully-prepared consultant.

  • Strength to bear persecution

    Praise God for faithful believers sharing Bible stories. One storyteller sharing the story of Paul and Silas brought strength to a village believer. He had been persecuted by his neighbors and they told him to leave his village. In another village, a story about persecution of the apostles brought new energy to women in a small house fellowship. They planned together how to handle persecution in their village the next time it happens. Pray for these believers living in difficult places. Also pray for the storytellers as they share new stories in their villages.

  • Bible story recording sessions

    Pray for those recording the Bible story sets for two languages in South Asia. These will be made available using audio players for the story fellowship groups in various villages. Pray for strong voices and no technical problems with the recording. Pray that all the staff stay healthy for the sessions. And ask for wisdom as these are distributed on audio players and mobile phone apps. Pray that the listeners respond to the Scriptures with faith and obedience.
