This past week I spent time with our team in Orlando working to prepare maps and graphs showing the progress StoryRunners has made over the past 6 years.
Our projects consist of multiple trainings in countries and among people groups where there is little or no access to the Gospel. The trainings focus on equipping nationals with the skills to translate and share 30-50 Bible Stories that revolve around the redemptive theme of the whole Bible. The teams are given access to nearby Wycliffe Bible translators to help with any questions that may arise.
We have also partnered and equipped teams from other agencies in order to accelerate work in more languages and people groups. We are very excited about our work over the last 6 years in projects where we?supported, trained and/or equipped the work along with?Oral Bible Projects that StoryRunners led directly.
The number of languages that now have completed translations and trained nationals who can share the stories has increased. Often now this is the first time people in these groups are hearing the Bible stories in their own language.
On our drive back from Colorado this summer our 1997 van?s transmission died on us. We received the car as a donation a few years ago and it served us well for over 75,000 miles. We are thankful for the years of service it provided. We ended up trading it in for Hyundai sedan. God does provide at just the right times.
The kids also started school this past week. All three kids are now waiting at the bus stop together. Please pray for their transition and for good friendships.
Thank you so much.
