Nigeria Trip Prep and Prayer Need

 

Ken tests out his mosquito net prior to leaving on his trip.

There have been times in our ministry history when we truly have felt carried along by the prayers of friends, family, and supporters. I am hoping that this will also be the case during this upcoming trip to Nigeria on June 4th through June 17th.

This is my first time to Africa and I would be less than honest if I didn’t communicate that I am somewhat nervous. I’m not quite sure why other than the realization that there are many connections to me made, a lot of technology that needs to be configured and operating properly, and a great deal of country to traverse.

But, through it all, I am truly expecting great things from God. Will you pray for me and help make that happen?

BTAKs Speeding Bible Translation

Sometimes I’m asked if technology really speeds up the Bible translation process knowing technology itself is fickle and breaks down, gets viruses and bugs (literally and figuratively speaking!), is lacking in certain parts of the world, etc. Well, I believe the answer to the question is a definite YES! But then again, I’m a little biased.

We’ve been deploying Bible Translation Acceleration Kits (BTAKs) and there’s at least one other person that believes in them. Read the Technology Speeding Up Bible Translation article about Wycliffe Associate’s CEO, Bruce Smith, on his recent trip to Nigeria for more.

What do you think?

 

What is it Worth?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is a video worth? The question is somewhat subjective so I don’t know that I can answer it. I can say however, that if you get excited about people around the world coming to know Jesus, it would be well worth your time to watch this video. It really would. Because the people portrayed in the video felt that walking in the jungle for days to hear about Jesus was worth it.

I wonder… would it be worth it to me, to us?

He Is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Here is a lovely poem by Max Lucado for this Easter Day. If you’d like to view it as an ecard with some gorgeous music you can do so here. We hope you have had a gorgeous day celebrating our Saviour’s resurrection.

With love, Anne and Ken

His Name is Jesus by Max Lucado
HIS BIRTH
Jesus…
He could hold the universe in His palm
but gave it up to float
in the womb of a maiden.
Christ became one of us.
and He did so to redeem all of us.
HIS MISSION
Jesus…
The man…
who spoke with such thunderous authority
and loved with such childlike humility.
The life of Jesus Christ
is a message of hope,
a message of mercy,
a message of life in a dark world.
HIS DEATH
Jesus…
The palm that held the universe
took the nail of a soldier.
On the eve of the cross,
Jesus made His decision.
He would rather
go to hell for you
than go to heaven without you.
HIS RESURRECTION
Jesus…
the moment He removed the stone,
He removed all reason for doubt.
Christ’s resurrection
is an exploding flare
announcing to all sincere seekers
that it is safe to believe.
-Max Lucado

Mary Gardner Paid It All

Mary Gardner, a translator with Wycliffe, recently paid the ultimate price to serve her Lord.  I dare say if you were to talk with her today she would say she lived life to its’ fullest.

Windows Search Function Tricks

I was searching for a document on my hard drive the other day and received a long list of results. “There has got to be an easier way than this!”, I thought. Then I came TechRepublic’s article entitled, Take advantage of Search filters in Windows Explorer that offered some new search techniques and tricks.

I hope you find it as helpful as I have.
