Robinson Ministry Update – 4th August 2019

This content is over a year old now. Please, read this page keeping its age in your mind and realise that not all the links will work. I'm happy to hear from you if you find anything that is broken or dysfunctional, but I may or may not be able to do anything about it!

The month of August is upon us. My (Tim) phone lights up with lots of messages from friends and colleagues here wishing me a “happy new month” either as text, or as a meme or even an animated gif.

July was a surprisingly busy month. On the family front, all three of us have our birthdays in July. Dan enjoyed a Marvel themed party with a bunch of his friends. School resumes again on the 7th (next Wednesday) and so we are getting everything tidied up, sorted out and ready to go.

On the work front, Tim has been busy engaging with two language communities that we may start partnering with. Great conversations to explore who the community is and what challenges they are facing. Discussion about what churches are in the area and which other ministries might make use of vernacular scripture when it is available. Moving onto hearing about what challenges the community is facing and what scripture they think would help the community if it were available.

He also took a 1,000 mile road trip with Dan and some of our new staff up to the location that they will be soon moving to.

While there, Tim had meetings with the translation teams in the area and also the language committees.

The purpose was to introduce the new staff to them, exploring and understanding what has been going on, what the current plans are and working on some ideas together about what help is needed where.

Ali continues to work on gathering, collating and storing language data. She is involved with the Africa Area team looking at the international language data storage systems as well as working with partners here in Nigeria to gather up to date information.

Coming up there are several set of visitors on the way over to Nigeria. Two of Wycliffe UK’s project funding team are coming to visit in mid August, it’ll be great for them to see the impact of the work they are helping to fund.

Praise: For safety on the roads as Tim travelled. For new staff joining us that are really going to help the work move forward.

Prayer: As we adjust back to term-time routines. For the Wycliffe UK visitors. For continuing conversations with Language communities.
