West Timor Trip

To support and encourage... West Timor By Rev Wendell Flentje My wife Mary and I continue to visit West Timor because we can clearly see how God is at work in the bible translation and scripture-in-use work there.

Coordin8 Issue #9 January 2013

The process of translating the Bible, or even one book of the bible is HUGE. We all know that. There are many steps to that process, and in the next few issues of Coordin8, we will introduce these steps and give you an insight into what our translators and advisors are actually doing. In this issue we will give you the "Big Picture". As you read about Scripture projects around the regions, you can picture where the workers are up to n this process. Here, we expand a little on steps 1 & 2, as preface to the translation task, which begins with drafting.

New Events this week

In memory of M Ganambarr by Hannah Harper Earlier this month, a former translator in North East Arnhem Land passed away. M Ganambarr, aged 70, had been suffering from ill health for some time, and went to be with her Lord on Monday 7th January. Ms Ganambarr was a great contributor to the Gumatj translation project in the 1970’s, based in Yirrkala. She leaves a great legacy of Yolŋu language, Christian life, and love for God’s people. The funeral and memorial ceremonies will run from Monday 29th January to Sunday 3rd February, in Yirrkala.
