‘The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ (which means ‘God with us’). Mt 1:23 (NIV)

‘And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ Mt 28:20b (NIV)

God is with us! His Holy Spirit helps us and is with us forever (Jn 14:16). Doesn’t that bring so much joy as we enter the new year!

We are sure of this because we have Jesus’ words. Thank you for praying with us for those who don’t yet have Jesus’ words in a language that they understand!

Bless you and your family!

24. Christmas Project: Thank God that 49 Australian Indigenous language groups now have seven key verses of the Christmas story, thanks to many local translators and the support of AuSIL.

25. Christmas Project: Pray that the Good News of the birth of the Saviour will bring hope and joy to the Indigenous Australian communities who have some of the Christmas story in their own language.

26. Christmas Project: Other Indigenous communities also want the Christmas story in their language. Please pray for first time translators—that they would be encouraged to take this up and would succeed in translating these seven verses.

27. Christmas Project: Pray that the Christmas project sparks more work, giving Indigenous communities access to much more of God’s Word.

28. Chad: There are six translation projects among minority language groups in Chad. Pray that believers in each of these groups will be ‘thoroughly equipped’ by God’s Word ‘for every good work’. (2 Tim 3:16-17)

29. Mima*, Chad: Give thanks for the completion of the Mima* New Testament. Pray that the Mima* people embrace the Word of God and are transformed from glory to glory into the image of Christ. (2 Cor 3:18)

Thanks for your patience...

Waiting is hard, isn't it. But imagine waiting 2000 years for Scripture in your language! Thanks for your patience. And thanks for your generous support which will help bring the long wait to an end...
