They hadn't spoken to each other in months! (Jan. 2019 Newsletter)

Display images to see this picture. In our previous newsletter, we talked about being in a church in Pere sharing a portion of Genesis 15 in the Titan language for the first time. People were deeply impacted by it, but Steve had no idea just how much until the next day.

Sitting with the translators on that Monday, one told Steve that the church leaders had had an argument months before that caused a rift between them. So they hadn't spoken to each other, even about church business, for months. For the Titans, maintaining good relationships is everything, so this rift was devastating!

But God had a plan! When the Scripture portion was read in Titan, God spoke powerfully to the hearts of these leaders in their own language. Immediately after that service, they mended their broken relationships and began meeting again! Praise God!

We know that "All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that each person who belongs to God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." And it did exactly that in the lives of the church leaders and others that Sunday.

This is just the beginning of what God will do among the Titans once His Word is available in the Titan language!

Budget News
We are now at 72% of the monthly budget established by Wycliffe for our ministry. Once we are receiving 100% of our budget, Wycliffe can release us to begin a remote assignment to continue helping the Titans to translate the Bible into their language.

We are blessed to have a team of partners who believe as we do that the Titans need at least one translation! Our Wycliffe ministry to the Titans is possible because people like you lift us up to the Lord in prayer, give generously each month, and advocate for us. Thank you!
