For two weeks in January, Lae Centre has hosted a workshop for a multi-language translation project. Twenty-nine PNG translators from six language groups worked through various tasks co-ordinated by a Wycliffe team. There are so many positive stories we could share, and here are two that highlight the partnership of the Australian church with what God is doing in PNG.
The Kapin team (above) made good use of an office space renovated by a work-party from our home church in Townsville. They arrived a week early to prepare for the workshop, and quickly laid claim to this spot away from noise and distraction, and with plenty of power outlets for the now essential laptops.
During the workshop, we were able to gift each of the translators stationery packs donated by a Christian School in North Queensland. The items were well received, and the spirit in which they were given was certainly not lost on these saints.
By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others. 2 Corinthians 9:13
As we serve one another in this way, we grow together in Christ, the gospel advances, and God is glorified! It’s a win, win, win situation.
- For these brothers and sisters who give of their time to work together towards a translation in their heart language.
- That God will keep some of the older members in good health, that they may see the work through to the end.
