And it is underway!

We had a good recording meeting yesterday. Due to it being a holiday, not all of the readers were able to attend, however the ones who came were excited about getting started.

After the meeting, two of the readers stayed and began recording, the person reading for Peter, and the person reading angel parts and the book of Hebrews. It was hard to get going, but once they started into it, they began to do better and better. Regardless, it is never easy, because of some difference in local word usage and that of the text, as well as just getting the pronunciation correct. Most of the readers have not read in their own language much, as it is not taught in the schools, so it is a daunting task before them! I am so inspired by their willingness to try and give it their best effort!

Please pray for Fernando and Pedro as they continue to read through Wednesday, and pray for Clifford, Elvina, and I, that we would still be able to get our other work done, in spite of our involvement in the recording work.

Hey Rebecca. What is team Toledo? Are you there with other Americans? I'm not sure how to use a blog site. Where would we send support for you? Just a few questions...

I wish you could help those guys out with some of their questions. They are very serious about moving there if they need to. Yes, do let me know what you think about that. Blessings on your efforts to record the New Testament.
