My husband Al and I are members of a LCMC congregation. For over 30 years we have been Bible translators for a remote language group in a politically sensitive area. We are associate members of Lutheran Bible Translators and members of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Over the coming year we will be pushing towards the completion and type-setting of the New Testament for the people group we are working with, hopefully getting through the typesetting process before this time next year. We ask you to pray for us and those who work with us in the completion process. Pray that Satan will have no opportunity to obstruct this work. Pray for the growing number of Christians in the area, for their spiritual growth and for the development of solid leadership. Cheryl JSeptember 1, 2012 at 8:00am
I am a senior student at Moravian Theological Seminary doing a directed study on church planting and mission starts. I am also a candidate for ordained ministry. I would like to correspond and blog on such topics. A question I have is does anyone have experiences with church planters living or not living in the community where he or she is planting. Tim Keller and other experts recommend moving to or living in the same community. What do people think or know?April 8, 2013 at 10:30am
