Please be praying for the Lavukal translation team as they meet today, tomorrow, and Saturday to peer review Ruth and Jonah. It's a long, tedious process, but the results (a clear translation that flows naturally) are worth it!
After some miscommunication and some flexibility in changing plans, Aaron and the translation team finally got off this morning. Our family went down to the beach to see them off just before noon.
Leonard, with Benjamin as his first mate, and Aaron took off to pick up Matthew from Hae Village, then crisscrossed over to Karumalun Village to pick up Ezekiel. On the way, a huge line of wind and rain blew through. Those of us in the house closed the louvers, but those who were in the boat got soaked. When Benjamin finally got dropped off, before the team headed to Leru Village where Simon lives, he was sopping wet and needed a change of clothes before he ate lunch and finished school.
