Recording Session March 20 and 23

Today we finished the semi-final draft of Genesis 29-35. 29-31 is error-free, 32-33 are checked, but have a few adjustments to be made, and I check 34 and 35 when I come to work on Friday.
Just to give you an example of what we do, in Gen. 33:19, the signer lingered just a hair too long on "Shechem" before moving on to sign "father", so the meaning changed from "Shechem’s father" to "Shechem and his father."
Pray especially for Pastor Minamida, our signer, as he faces the final preparation for the recording session. With a perfect draft, even the smallest glitches edited out or new versions patched in, it looks to be easier on him than previous recording sessions, when he was still having to make last minute corrections on the fly, but a lot can happen between now and the 20th. Pray for health and strength.
