I continue to be amazed at the speed with which the easyBibles project grows as it sets up teams all over the world to work together to produce easyBibles in their local languages (using a limited vocabulary). These are invaluable for those whose reading capacity is limited for any reason and especially for Deaf people throughout the world. If you have not previously heard of this work, I urge you to check the easyBibles website regularly and join with those of us who are regularly giving our prayer support to this exciting work. I hope you will be as thrilled as I am to read the latest update from the Coordinator:-
"Dear friends - The acceleration in interest in January has increased
still further in February and March - praise God.
My travel plans for May 30th till June 18th are fixed with Ethiopia
then Malawi and possibly Zambia.
There was no Feb update - and these monthly updates will become less
frequent because several times each week, i change the website
www.easyBibles.com and particularly the 'Prayer Update' on it. So
please check this for your prayer information.
The latest big news is that with the arrival of easyIndonesian and
easyRussian, we're now encouraging work in the TOP TEN LANGUAGES OF
THE WORLD - Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish, Russian, Arabic,
Bengali, Portuguese, Malay - Indonesian and French. Some of these have
just started and one or two are quite weak - but we're getting there.
The majority on the next 16 languages on
also being tackled. And many important others - Swahili, Luganda,
Luo...are moving forward strongly. To date there are over 70 projects
In India, we rejoice to have the work being led by senior members of
the Friends' Missionary Prayer Band - starting with easyTamil.
>From Felix Chibesa in Zambia 'MAY GOD GREATLY BLESS YOU FOR DOING THE
WORK WE SHOULD HAVE DONE FOR OUR PEOPLE.THANK YOU SO MUCH.
SOON, I WILL PREVAIL OVER A FEW PEOPLE TO JOIN IN DOING THE OTHER
MAJOR LANGUAGES IN ZAMBIA.THESE ARE LOZI, LUVALE, LUNDA, TONGA, NYANJA
I HOPE TO BE IN LUSAKA TO MEET SUCH FRIENDS BY THE TIME WE WILL BE
TRAVELING TO MALAWI.
ALSO I WILL VISIT A BIBLE SCHOOL AND SEE IF SOME STUDENTS CAN BUY THE
VISION. IT IS NOT EVERY ONE AM LOOKING FOR.IT IS THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE
1. READY TO COMMIT THEMSELVES TO A LONG TERM VOLUTARY WORK.
2. HUMBLE, TEACHABLE,AND WITH GOOD CHARACTER, AS WELL AS GOOD
KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIBLE.
3. UNDERSTAND THE CULTURE OF THEIR PEOPLE.
4. ABLE TO PERFOM IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
EasyTagalog has arrived from Manila - but in blue biro - making
scanning difficult - but this good pastor and i shall get there soon.
I hope soon for easyUrdu and easyPunjabi from Pakistan and my American
friends who successfully introduced me to an easyRussian writer in the
Ukraine has mentioned friends to start easyHebrew, Farsi (Iran) and
Arabic (so far we only have some easyJuba Arabic).
More is on the web.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS,
martin & jenny"
