I’ve meant to mention this first project for a couple of weeks and it just hasn’t made its way from brain to screen due to a condition known as forgetfulness.
Late this afternoon (evening in the USA, we are still at central standard time until April 3rd), the ladies at the Abundant Life Bible Church are hosting an evangelistic ladies’ tea. They asked Beth to be give the main message which she has somehow been finding a little time to prepare for over the past month.
Please join us in praying that there will be some unsaved ladies in attendance (many have been invited) and that the Holy Spirit will work powerfully in the hearts of many.
The other project has been only about a week in the making. A church in western Iowa has an outreach to Hispanics in their rural community and have about 10 to 15 that attend their Sunday morning worship services. Unfortunately, they don’t understand much English and so the sermon has been translated on paper into Spanish so they can follow along as best they can. Their translator is not available on Saturdays to do this work any longer so I was asked to consider translating the sermons. My translation skills are not at that level so after discussing an idea with them, I’m going to help Jason translate the sermons and the church will provide some renumeration for his time and effort. This is expected to be a continuous, weekly project.
This is a great idea as Jason and Kristin struggle to make ends meet on just a few hundred dollars income each month (even while working 60+ hours at the factory). The factory is slowing down production so there is no overtime now and a few extra dollars each month would really help them out. Jason is very excited about doing this kind of work. He has always wanted some experience in translation work and this will give him that. He also is excited about ministering to Mexican believers in the USA. How cool is that?
Thanks for praying with us over the ladies’ evangelistic tea as well as the translation project to go well and to be a true help and blessing to the brethren in Iowa.
