Thank you for your emails and Facebook comments – here is the latest.
Around 3:00 pm this afternoon there were two bomb explosions in downtown Jos, Nigeria. At this point we do not know the numbers of killed or injured but it seems there may be many. To the best of our knowledge all Wycliffe staff and their families are safe
Please pray for our Wycliffe staff based in Jos that they would make wise decisions in response to this situation. Please pray also for the country of Nigeria which is facing trouble on many fronts at the moment.
We are physically fine, Tim stayed at work for longer than usual to try and get hold of all our staff and make some "what if" plans with the acting director. This evening as i write, things ae calm, we ahven't heard news of folow up or retaliation.
This morning I posted this on Facebook "With all that is going on – I am once again convinced that nothing will change until people have God's word in a language they can understand." I'm not comfortable right now, but I am convinced that I am involved in the ministry and in the location that God wants.
For Nigeria and its leaders and residents.
For Jos and its residents.
For all our staff and partners involved in Bible Translation minisitries.
