    On 18 August a two-week sign language translation workshop begins in Cotonou, Benin. Deaf participants will come from Togo and Benin. The workshop focus will be to teach beginning translation principles. The practical part of the workshop will be translating Kande's Story into sign language. This type of sign language translation workshop has never been held before. Pray for safety and good health for the staff and participants. Pray as well for a good and profitable time together and that the Lord will be honored.

    Fon; Benin (1,400,000), The Fon Bible has been ready for printing for a while, but difficulties in finding the funding to print two editions have stalled further progress. Ask the Lord to provide the funds in His good timing. Pray that local churches will prepare for the Scripture dedications as they wait. Once printed, pray that the finished books will be important tools for church leaders. The translation team is also producing an audio version of the Bible with Faith Comes By Hearing. Pray that this easy-access Scripture medium will have a large impact on the people. The mother tongue Fon community is mainly in the country of Benin, but smaller communities exist in a neighboring country, and many speak it as a trade language. Ask the Holy Spirit to allow this translation to bear much fruit among all speakers of the Fon language!

    Aja; Benin/Togo (512,000). Ask the Lord to give the Aja translators and consultants alert minds and sharp eyes as they evaluate each translated New Testament book this year. They hope to have the New Testament ready for typesetting by the end of 2015, but much remains to be done before then. Pray that nothing will impede their progress, and that they will stay focused. Pray that the committees and organizations coordinating the final translation and publication steps will work well together, and that they will be able to prepare the language communities for distributing the translation. Finally, ask God to raise up the funds needed for printing the New Testament.

    Gen; Togo/Benin (327,000). The Gen translation team has finished drafting the Bible. However, there are major differences of opinion regarding which key terms they should use. This debate is holding up typesetting and printing. Pray that this issue will be resolved quickly so that the Bible can be typeset and printed, and so churches and individuals can use God’s Word in their heart language. Gen is a trade language in southern Togo. Ask the Lord to cause this translation to also bear fruit among those who speak Gen as a second language.

    FON; Benin; 440,000. The translation team is nearly done with the Old Testament. By 2012 it should be in the typesetting and printing process in Nairobi, Kenya. Pray that this will go well. Thank the Lord for the provision of a computer and printer that facilitated these last steps. Pray that there will be no financial hindrances as this project nears the end.
