Pastor Minamida is getting better—bit by bit. He will come to ViBi twice a week for two hours each, signing in front of the camera for only ten minutes a day. So we are really still just limping along in Genesis, but this is better than nothing. You will remember, way back in September, that Genesis 36-42 was almost ready for final recording. He will start April 3 on the final revisions, and when he finishes, we will begin the final recording. It may take a while at 10 camera minutes a day, two days a week, but we are still determined to get God’s word to the Deaf of Japan.
Please keep praying for his full recovery. Please pray for us as we search for translators. And pray for funding to allow us to hire them. (Just by way of comparison, the Colombian Sign Language Bible translation team has 12 people on staff.)
