Beginning June 30th, Bob will be checking about 12 chapters of Genesis in the Hobongan language of West Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia. These chapters will include the story of Creation, the Fall of Man, and the life of Joseph. Please be praying for this first translation check for this language group. The native speakers are not used to sitting down for long periods of time, so this will be taxing for them, in addition to the fact that they will not be ‘at home’ in the jungle but rather out in the provincial capital city for these five days of intensive, verse-by-verse checking. Our goal is to ensure that the translation of God’s Word into the Hobongan language is accurate to the original and also clear and natural-sounding to the native speakers of the language. So please be praying for clarity of thought and stamina for not only the native speakers, but also the translator and the translation consultant!
