What we do all day:
Ÿ Train mother-tongue translators toward greater excellence.
Ÿ Check translated Scriptures to make them more accurate, clear and natural.
How this work moves people into a vital relationship with Christ:
Ÿ By placing revelation in the heart language, it shows God as Father and Christ as Immanuel.
Ÿ Most of our projects aggressively re-express familiar Christian phrases in order to effectively reach out to the have-nots: the unreached, unchurched and unschooled.
Ÿ To help them trust Him in chaos and accomplish many tasks in too little time for their return to the Philippines in early June.
Ÿ To protect and strengthen Keith's parents in their recovery and rehab: his mom after a stroke just before Easter, and his dad after May 1 triple-bypass surgery.
Ÿ To richly bless a clan reunion honoring Keith's parents May 17–18.
To give an encouraging last time together to Keith & Grace and their three kids with spouses and grandchildren, May 19–22.
Ÿ To give significant help to their translator-colleagues in a workshop for projects serving Buddhist groups, to be held in July.
Ÿ To guide them into good translation in their month-long workshop with two tribal projects in the Philippines in August.
