Prayer Bookmark for June
Mission of the Month-Wycliffe Bible Translators
Gareth and Katharine Mort (Wycliffe Bible Translators) in Nigeria
Gareth Mort from Christ Church serves as a translation consultant with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Nigeria - Katharine has been responsible for creating the alphabet and co-ordinating the translation of the scriptures into the local Kamuku language (the language area where they mainly live).
Please pray for refreshment and encouragement for Gareth and Katharine’s family as they are on holiday in the UK for most of this month. [Gareth says: When you only have one month of the year in the UK, holiday cannot just be holiday!]
Pray for the various Bible translation projects they are involved with in Nigeria – that Gareth and Katharine may advise them well on how to move forward towards good quality translations which are useable and actually used by the communities.
Pray especially for the release of the Jesus Film in the Kamuku language this autumn (a film based on Luke's Gospel) which they dubbed/recorded for in March. Pray that God will use it as an outreach and discipleship tool
As a family they are constantly in transition, moving between very different locations. Pray for Eleanor and Daniel in coping with the different contexts they have to live in - Gareth and Katharine need wisdom as parents in helping them - and themselves - manage it all. [Eleanor, 6, is in an international school for half the academic year, and they live in a rural village where she is home-schooled for the other half.]
