My God Is So Big

When we put Claire and Isaiah to bed at night, we often sing a familiar chorus to them. “My God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do!”  Simple words but, oh, so powerful!  When we felt the Lord leading us back into Wycliffe in the beginning of 2010 it was a huge step of faith for us.  We are in awe of his amazing provision for us, yet not surprised that he’d keep his promise so perfectly.  We have traveled many Takuu villagethousands of miles, and have had many opportunities to share about what God is doing in our lives and through Bible translation.  We thank God that we can look back on 2010 and see example after example of God’s love and faithfulness.

Christmas Eve saw the dedication of the Takuu New Testament on Mortlock Island in eastern PNG making it the 9th New Testament dedication for 2010. Last year, Tom Puaria, translator for the Takuu language (pictured right), told some people in training as translators, “I want to see all those people overseas who helped make it possible, andTakuu translator thank them! These people have never seen us, but have given money and prayer so that we could have God’s Word! Just look at the love of God shown through them…Let’s thank God.”* And he did. And so do we, because you and your partnership with us help make Bible translation in PNG possible. Thank you!
