I’m off to Chicago today until Saturday for I.D.I.O.M. (In-Depth Investigation of Mission), put on by Lutheran Bible Translators. [I am grateful to LBT-Canada for their support in attending the conference.] This event is for people considering the possiblity of serving in translation ministry (whether as translation advisors, language surveyors, ethnomusicologists, etc). Please pray for me and the other seventeen people at this event as we explore the possiblity of working with LBT.
LBT has published 31 translations of the New Testament since 1980, with many more projects on the go. They and similar groups such as Wycliffe Bible Translators are instrumental in bringing the Gospel of Christ to the nations. Please pray for these ministries, that God would provide workers for the harvest.
