We are so excited to see God continuing to work on behalf of our ministry. We had two more families and a church join our financial partnership team this week which brings our pledges up to 74% of our budget. It is amazing to see the priority that you all are making to bringing the word of God to people around the world. Thank you so much!
I know that it might seem confusing about how Phillip, I and others being in North Carolina contribute to Bible translation. You maybe be surprised to learn that Wycliffe Bible Translators is made up of 1/3 linguists and 2/3 support staff. It takes a lot of work to keep linguists functioning in the field and being able to focus on their work. Check out a video that we have added to our blog that demonstrates the path to Bible translation: http://theshipleys.org/2012/11/the-road-to-transformation/
We have four more weeks to determine if we will be able to move to North Carolina in January for our training. We are excited to see how God is going to complete our team and when He will bring us out to North Carolina!
