Word for the World - Slovakia

   Shane is serving on the board of a local non-profit which is translating the Scriptures into a dialect of Roma language spoken by many in Slovakia. We have asked you before to pray for Pierre van Vuuren and the translation project.  The project has been underway for many years, and the New Testament is now completed. 
The Gospel of John
   Keith Holmes recently visited Slovakia as he prepares to come and record the New Testament of this new translation.  He had a wonderful time with the local team involved in the translation and also meeting many of the people who will serve as voice actors for the audio recording.  We praise God for the synergies of multiple churches and organizations who have worked together on this project so far and hopefully more will join to support the completion of the project.

   Pray for the translation team as they begin work on the Old Testament.
   Pray for funding for the completion of the translation and printing of the complete translation.
   Pray for Keith and the team who will be recording the audio version of the New Testament beginning in February.

   Send me an email at if you or your church or mission group is interested in helping fund this translation project through Word for the World - Slovakia.
