Tongue Translators (MTT), many of which had received their first computer just the week before. He knew it would be a daunting task for the MTT’s to go from no experience to actually starting their Bible translation in this software in two short weeks, so they began each day asking for God’s help. Rather than a simple prayer of guidance, our Nigerian colleagues took a different approach – song and dance.

Revelation 7:9 says, “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.”

I am thankful that God understands and loves praise and worship from all nations, tribes, and tongues. I know you are too. Your gifts and prayers enabled us to serve our Nigerian brothers and sisters on this trip.
