An Update from Bart and Emily Allen

Bart and a translation helper working on the Joseph story in Genesis.
For the last 3 weeks our family has been in town for our annual regional conference and for standardized testing for our boys. The Lord has given us many blessings and has refreshed us to go back to Amdu. 

Bart has been working on translating 8 chapters in Genesis in preparation for our very first translation check.  In less than a month, one of our translation consultants will be flying to Amdu to officially check all the Scripture portions that our team has ready.  We still have some work to do before he comes, but it is very exciting to be at this point. 

The first literacy class graduated in February and continues to meet once a week so the students can improve their reading speed and comprehension.  The second literacy class is underway and doing well!

Please pray for our team as we press forward with literacy and Bible translation.  Thanks for your part in the Amdu work through your prayer.  We are thankful for you!
