Pastor Napoleon, cluster language worker, Cameroon

God was raising up Pastor Napoleon for language work before we, Bruce and Kathy, ever went to Akwaya area in Cameroon in 2007. Once we made the connection, Pastor Napoleon completed a four-year B.A. in Bible Translation and returned to his local area in 2015 to work full-time with us. He has been the mobiliser and facilitator for the cluster of four Tivoid languages, but that has become increasingly difficult to do in the last few years. Thank God for opening up a window of opportunity for Pastor Napoleon (and a few other Iceve) to begin written translation of Luke in Iceve as part of a Luke Partnership in Nigeria! Pray for safety for him as he goes to these workshops and inspiration as he drafts Scripture. Pray for him to continue to be able to serve the other three languages too.

Rachel Borneman 4WD Fund

Having spent a significant portion of her childhood and adult life living amongst Aboriginals in community in central Arnhem Land, Rachel Borneman is in a unique position to minister to Aboriginal people and to provide all kinds of support – social, emotional and practical. Her main focus is to support Aboriginal adults to work with their young people, using the Kriol Bible. Rachel’s vital ministry involves a great deal of driving between Darwin, Katherine and Aboriginal communities, especially along the Central Arnhem Highway, which includes roads that are only suitable for 4WDs. A reliable and properly equipped 4WD vehicle is critical for her to be able to do all of her work, and it is essential for her safety.

Recently, Rachel’s 4WD ‘died’, leaving her in a very difficult situation. God has blessed her with a number of solutions that, when combined, have made it possible to purchase a more reliable vehicle – a 2007 Toyota Landcruiser Prado. One of the sources of funding was, however, a loan for $12,000. As Rachel lives on a very modest amount of support as her income, we are seeking some assistance for her in repaying this loan. This could be a one-off contribution, or a more regular contribution.

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...
