- The sound of singing: Philippines
Philippines [2013-10-15] —
The Jesus Film recording was recently completed for the Ayta Mag-Indi people. Praise God for all involved in the recording, final editing, and the quality check. Soon it will be mastered onto DVD. The media specialists who helped with the recording report that “it was a very uplifting time of seeing how God provided just what or who was needed along the way.” They were also instrumental in recording some Christian songs in the Ayta Ambala and Ayta Mag-Indi languages, as well as in training a few of the people in simple methods of doing their own recordings. Two days later, one of the recorded songs was heard being played loudly from the Ayta village nearby. Praise God!
- Scripture nearing completion - AYTA cluster project: Philippines
Philippines [2013-03-01] —
AYTA cluster project—ABELLEN , MAGIN DI, and AMBALA languages; Philippines; 10,200. The Ayta cluster project made progress despite some setbacks. Lift up the Abellen translation team in prayer as they grieve the loss of a young man who was helping them. Pray for spiritual, physical, and emotional strength for the members of each of the three teams. Praise the Lord that clustering these related languages together has paid off—the Magindi team was able to improve their translation by observing the work of their linguistic neighbors. Praise the Lord, too, for the insight He has given the teams as they study and translate His Word. The translators also worked with others to create audio and visual materials that will accelerate the impact of the Scriptures in their communities. www.oneverse.org
