Dictionary Workshop

December 13, 2015

Dear praying friends,

We have an exciting week coming up and would like you to pray for it with us. Tomorrow (Monday) until Wednesday is a dictionary workshop here in our village. We will work to collect many Dughore words, grouped by different topics. Pray for the right people to come and for it to be a fun and productive time. We’ve had some challenges scheduling this workshop, so we’re glad it is set for this week. Please pray that all the logistics come together and that it can raise awareness not only of the value of this language but also the idea of doing Bible translation into this language.

A few other items of prayer for our family are:

  • All five of us have been fairly sick for about a week. Coughs, sore throats, runny noses, and eye infections have left us feeling tired and worn down. Pray for my voice to hold out, especially as I lead the dictionary workshop the next few days.
  • Last week was a large youth conference two villages away. Praise God for good conversations with people during the conference and the chance to share some Dughore Bible story recordings with people from different villages. Pray that the people I spoke with would share what they learned with their own villages. Pray for God to call the youth of Kolombangara back to Himself, as it seems like many are turning away from church and faith.
  • My sister will be coming to visit, arriving in one week. We’re all really excited that she gets to come and celebrate Christmas with us here in our village.

Thank you for lifting us up in prayer!
John for the Havengas
