Greetings! Just a brief blog here. I’m preparing for my next mission for Peru. I will leave on Saturday morning (January 19th). I’m really looking forward to meet deaf translators and leaders in Lima. Pray for flights arrive safely in Lima, Peru for all facilitators and a tech person, and also, pray for protection, provision, wisdom and guidance for all of us in the workshop. I will update with progress and pictures in this blog. Stay tuned!
Greetings! I just want to say thank you for your prayers and your support. It’s been an amazing year! In 2018, I have gone to 5 countries for missions. I especially enjoyed my experiences in Africa. I met a lot of wonderful people there who worked very hard to translate God’s Word in their own sign language. I’m very grateful to have a lot of opportunities to teach and train them. I’m still learning every day. It’s been a blessing.
In the first 5 months of 2019, I will go to Peru and 4 African countries for Bible-translation missions. Really looking forward to mission-filled year!
May God bless you with a joy, loving and peaceful celebration on Christmas and all throughout the 2019!
Greetings from Cape Town! I have been here for few days and I can say I had an amazing time here. We went to sightsee Cape Town, took a ride in the cable car to top of Table Mountain & explore on top flat peak of Table Mountain, and visit African penguins. I took a ton of pictures. Enjoy!

I wish I can stay here any longer but I have to go back to America soon. Pray for me to arrive home safely…
Greetings! I’m happy to inform you that DOT workshop in Zambia was a success! The deaf translators did a great job to translate God’s Word into Zambian sign language. They completed 11 chapters for the Book of Mark. Pray that they will continue to translate and provide necessary things to keep it going. Government officials came by on the last day of workshop to celebrate our closing ceremony. Check out pictures below!
Greetings! After a long week of workshop, we decided to go to safari at Chaminuka for a day (Saturday). We had a great time! I post some good pictures. Please check it out below. Enjoy!

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.
Group Checking and Final Filming
We took a break from workshop for a weekend so we decided to go to South Africa for safari. It was located at Madikwe River Lodge. We ate very delicious lunch and then went on a safari. We really enjoyed it. I took a lot of pictures. Check it out below. Enjoy!

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.
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.
