  • Translation Project nearing Completion

    In Peru, Old Testament translators from 5 Quechua groups met together for a translation workshop February 2-26. This project is nearing completion. Pray for JAWCA and AWI* as their members are responsible for the majority of the literacy and Scripture promotion projects where the five Bibles will be used. Pray for wisdom as these workers look for open doors in Quechua churches and communities for promotion purposes. Pray that God would prepare the hearts of believers and non-believers to be excited and ready to use all of His Word.  

    *JAWCA and AWI are Quechua member organizations in the Wycliffe Global Alliance, in Huánuco and Huaraz, Peru respectively.

Pray that the paperwork will be handled quickly and that the books will be released from customs soon. Pray for the celebration of this New Testament, which is planned for July.

  • Pastoral Training for the Achí

    Sixty Achí pastors in Guatemala attended a pastoral training event in San Miguel Chicaj in February. It was the eighth such event sponsored by the Desert Springs Church of New Mexico. The topic was expositional preaching and the centrality of God’s Word. One humble participant said with thankfulness, “I have been pastoring for eight years, but based on these principles, I don’t think I have ever truly preached God’s Word.” The instructors encouraged him not to regret past sermons, but to now incorporate what he has learned into his preaching. Pray for good utilization of the Achí New Testament as the pastors apply their training.

  • Celebrating Genesis

    In a setting of joy and celebration, the book of Genesis was delivered to the speakers  of Mixtec Jamiltepec in Oaxaca, Mexico on January 17. This book is a preliminary edition, which may lead to the formation of a team that will begin the complete translation of the Old Testament. UNTI* facilitated this current project as advisors and raised the funds for printing. Pastors of the region and neighboring villages, municipal authorities and state representatives attended the presentation. The Mixtec Jamiltepec New Testament was completed in 1983. Thank God for His blessing.

    In Panama, the organization PAAM is asking God to open the way for them to find a larger house in their area of the city.

  • Shift in focus

    Workers In one West Asian language community are preparing to move from a Language Development focus to a Bible Translation focus later this year.
