Ken is on his way to India

06 Apr

I just dropped Ken and his colleague, Russ Perry, off at the Charlotte airport. They are on their way to India! This is a first trip to that large country for Ken. They plan on visiting two Indian organizations. We are partnering with them to provide IT technical support for 50 new Bible translation projects that are starting there.  Those 50 new projects represent 45% of the remaining translation needs in India!

Russ wrote on his blog: “One organization has asked us to help them develop training methods and materials that will be used to teach mother tongue translators how to use a computer program that was created specifically for translating the Bible. The other organization has asked us to help train their technicians who will provide computer support for mother tongue translators. Please pray that solid relationships will be formed, that we will communicate well, and that God will guide our partnership team to the most effective ways to provide the training to those who need it.”

They return home in two weeks. We’ll try to keep you updated as I hear from Ken. Thanks for praying!

    Ken’s three-wheeled vehicle is called a “Tuk Tuk.” Uncle Ken and I rode that while we were in India and there were THREE of us in the back. What a riot! What a trip! What an experience!!!

      We rode in one tonight but had to get in rather quickly because of all the traffic around us. As you know, one takes their life into their own hands when navigating the traffic here. I keep looking to the left for oncoming traffic when I should be looking right. Luckily, we’re watching out for each other.

      When you were in India? I would love to hear more about it.

    Thanks for praying, Ron. He just messaged me that he has arrived safely. I’m sure he is falling into bed soon. I’ll try to update as I hear from him. I’m sure it will be a facinating place to visit.

      Thank you, Ron, for your prayers. I appreciate it very much. Let’s touch base when I return and we can share some of the details. Thanks for keeping in touch, guy. And please give greetings to Iris and the children for me. Send a picture when you have a chance. I’ll bet they are getting big by now.

    Super, I’ll be interested to know how Ken enjoys India – I know he’ll be well treated though. Praying!
