90 Degrees and Hail

One of the things I haven't been able to figure out is how it can be 90 degrees outside, yet grape-sized hail is falling from the sky.

This is the view from our porch today--the yard literally looked like a driving range.

Solomon Islands

We heard a report this week from some of what God is doing in the Pacific area, particularly in Bible translation. I was drawn to some remarkable breakthroughs the Lord has provided in the Solomon Islands. This is evidenced by the praises and prayer requests in the following prayer notice from Wycliffe International:

Praise God for the publication of the whole Bible in the Solomons Pijin language. The Pijin Bible will be dedicated on July 6 as part of the nation's 30th independence celebration. The Bibles are scheduled to arrive by ship just days before the celebration. Pray that the ship will arrive on time; that there will be no difficulty getting the Bibles cleared through customs and off the wharf; that God would be glorified during the dedication service and that many people will purchase Bibles and read them. Pray also for God's spiritual protection and covering over this event.

Some Things Just Don't Work

Check out this video from a Wycliffe subsidiary organization, The Seed Company. I think it's a pretty cool illustration (in a format and media that makes a lot of sense) of why we do what we do.

In the News

Some of you may have read the recent story about an "untouched" community of people that was photographed in Brazil, supposedly for the first time.

On Tuesday, we received a call requesting an interview with my boss, Bob Creson, regarding Wycliffe's work around the world and how it relates to groups like this one. I thought the video turned out really well, focusing on the impact that Bible translation has and why we feel that language communities should have the opportunity to hear the good news of the Gospel in the language that speaks to their heart.
