New Bible Translation

We had a very interesting encounter with a Wycliffe Bible translator while we were at the retreat. We didn't have long to talk and I don't even remember the man's name but it was so exciting to hear him tell us that his project of 26 years has been completed!! He just finished translating the New Testament into a Mayan indigenous tribe language in Guatemala. In July they will be having an official presentation of the New Testament to this people group. After I explained to Joseph what this man had done he was enthralled by the talk of "Indians" and Bible translating. He later said that when he grows up he is going to be a Bible translator too. It made me feel a little proud to know that a Bible translator was a hero to my little boy.
