Just got a short email from Ken asking for urgent prayer. It’s all very technical so please don’t quote me on the problem!
As I understand it (this is like a lay person explaining string theory!), Ken and Russ are running into problems getting the translators computers ready to be used on Monday. Each translation team is receiving a new laptop in order to start their journey of Bible Translation. Each laptop must be configured so that they are the same. They need to have licenses and programs and all sorts of other stuff put on them.
There is some sort of major problem with where they bought the licenses , the computers, and who knows what else. Ken has had to do a lot of “work arounds” and is trying to image the correct computer so that they can easily do the next 10 computers. Remember, they are in an area with little Internet capabilities, so they can’t just download all of these things.
They need to get this done so that they can focus on their training materials but it’s taking up all of their time.
So would you pray? I don’t know how to ask you to pray…some of you understand this better than me!
By the way, Ken had frog for lunch yesterday. What did you have? My tomato soup sounds so boring!

Thank you Ron! It looks like he’s had success due to all the prayers. What? No frog legs for you? I bet you’ve eaten a lot of different foods in all the places you’ve been. Please give big hugs to all of your family. I think of them everytime I see a bag of Reeces Peanut Butter Cups!

Yes, will pray. I know the type of problem only too well. Can be very time consuming.
PS. I will stick with tomato soap 🙂
