What do you find encouraging? We think that making progress in a task or towards a goal can be very encouraging and can help us press on. Conversely, watching others moving forwards when we ourselves are not can be very discouraging.
The latter is the situation in which our colleagues in the Koro-Waci project of Nigeria find themselves. They are part of the Koro cluster project where several teams from related languages are being trained together but each working on their own translation.
The Koro-Waci team has been reduced from two translators to one and it seems that one person is not easily able to work alone, so the project has effectively ground to a halt. This is very discouraging for all who are involved, not only for the translator but the community leaders and technical experts who support the project. Perhaps it is especially discouraging as the other teams in the cluster are making good progress with their translations.
Praise God for the progress being made in the Koro cluster as a whole and that the Koro-Waci project is fully funded.
Please pray for breakthrough in these ways:
- for the right people and creative ways to engage with the Koro-Waci community
- against discouragement and that the Waci church leaders will find renewed vision and enthusiasm for Bible translation
- that the church can find the right people to be translators
- that these people can be trained well in the right skills, knowledge and would above all have the enthusiasm and persistence to push through these challenges the project is facing.
