Encouragement from Brazil

29 Jun

David Byron and Mark Hancock recently deployed a BGAN satellite in the jungles of Brazil. Just today, Alec Harrison, the translator, received the following encouraging text from the project’s mother tongue translator. I cannot help believe that this made their lengthy flight and 14 hour bus ride trip worth it. Read on…

“Did you all arrive safely? Did your two friends (referring to Mark and David – kjh) have a good trip back to the US?

“I am amazed at the device that they brought me. I would have never been able to purchase it on my own. Because of this device, my work is much easier. Why? Because now I can use this device to communicate directly with you right from my home. Thus I pray that our Father and Lord Jesus bless them (Dave and Mark) for bringing it for me to use.

Today, the 28th, I did another send/receive to send you more chapters of 2 Samuel and to check for a message from you. I saw that the two guys arrived back safely in the US. That is very good!


God IS doing some mighty things in the world of Bible translation, isn’t he?
