Final days of Botswana workshop

Greetings!  We just completed a workshop in Botswana last Friday.  While there were some challenges, they were doing great job!  I’m very happy for them.  Pray for them to continue to translate God’s Word in the future.

The deaf pastor and I did a local Christian radio interview in Gaborone.  We talked about deaf people in general, how we can help them and share the Gospel for Deaf.  We enjoyed it.

Right now, I’m in Zambia for another workshop in 2 weeks.  I’m looking forward to teach deaf translators how to translate tomorrow.

Check out pictures I have taken for last few days in Botswana.

Blessed Be This Noble Land

Greetings from Botswana!  “Blessed Be This Noble Land” is Botswana’s national anthem.  I have been here for 6 days and I really enjoy my time here in Gaborone.  We stay at guest house (bed and breakfast), it’s very comfortable.  The home cooked food by hosts was fantastic.

We started a Bible translation workshop last Monday.  There were about 10-12 deaf translators.  We taught them our methods for translation.  I was impressed by their work ethic and they work very hard to help each other.  I’m very hopeful that they will start final filming very soon.  Check out the pictures I have taken.

Africa, here I come again!

Greetings!  Since I got home from Burkina Faso on August 12th, things have been really crazy.  I can’t believe I’m going back to Africa very soon.  This is my third trip to Africa this year.  This time I will go to Gaborone, Botswana for a workshop in 2 weeks and then travel to Lusaka, Zambia for another 2 weeks.  I’m really exciting!  Pray for us to arrive there safely!  Will update with pictures later.

Bye, Burkina Faso!

Greetings!  I’m about to leave Burkina Faso for home today.  It was enjoyable 2 weeks here in Burkina Faso.  4 deaf translators have completed 4 chapters of Book of Mark.  It was a challenge for them but I’m very happy that they have succeeded.  I pray that they will continue the Bible translation and add more deaf translators to make this process go smoothly in the future.

There will be more workshops in Africa in near future.  I’m looking forward to start projects for those who are in need of sign language translation in God’s Word.

Check out these pictures below that I have taken here in Burkina Faso.  Enjoy!

Update from Burkina Faso…

Greetings from Burkina Faso!  So far, I have enjoyed here in Bobo Dioulasso.  People here are friendly.  Yesterday we just started a workshop with 4 deaf translators at deaf school in Bobo Dioulasso.  It can be challenging for them but they made good progress, following our methods of translation.  Will update more later!

I have taken some pictures during the trip to Bobo Dioulasso and at deaf school.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

Next mission…Burkina Faso

Greetings!  About 2 weeks ago, I arrived home from Costa Rica and now I’m getting ready for Burkina Faso located in western Africa.  You can see a map below.  I’m leaving on Friday afternoon and arriving Burkina Faso on next day.  I’m exciting to start a sign language translation workshop.  Deaf people in Burkina Faso need to know God’s Word in their heart sign language.  I’m looking forward to meeting deaf and interpreters there.  Please pray for my safety for traveling, guidance & wisdom and also, pray that our workshop will be a success!  Will try to update with news and pictures soon.  Blessings!

Pura Vida!

Pura Vida!!!  I’m back home from Costa Rica.  Pura Vida literally means “Pure Life”.  It symbolizes the idea of simply enjoy life and being happy.  It’s a way of life in Costa Rica.

I have really enjoyed in Costa Rica.  We went there for deaf conference for Latin America.  I have met wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ from all over Latin America (13 countries).  It’s awesome to learn different sign languages.  We worshipped, shared God of Word, prayed and fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ.

I want to share pictures with you.  I hope you enjoy it!
