The fever of spring cleaning is catching: this morning, my friend and I scoured through our church with sleeves rolled up, armed with sponges, extension cords, and an extra supply of toilet paper. As I scrubbed down the full-length glass doors in the foyer entrance, I was reminded of a quote by an Indonesian believer when she heard the Word of God in her own language.
“It was as though we had washed years of grime off a window and could suddenly see the beautiful landscape outside for the first time.”
The barrier of language needs more than Windex—Bible translation is only made possible by the grace of our Lord and through your teamwork and partnership. Thank you for being a part of this spiritual “spring cleaning!”
I sent out my May newsletter today. If you didn’t get a copy and would like one, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
