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.
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!

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!
