Praise God, Ms. Yano, a Deaf translator at ViBi, is getting baptized this Sunday.
Pastor Matsumoto, Pastor Kori, and Mr. Yamada will be flying to the U.S. next week to participate in the Global Deaf Partnership Summit from August 30–September 3. This is an exciting opportunity to increase cooperation in the monumental task of reaching the Deaf world with the Good News. Bible translation will play a key role in the discussions, and Deaf leadership is at the crux of this conference. Pray for our participants–for all of the participants, at this important meeting.
Due to my gross oversight for which there’s no point trying to make excuses, I’ve ended up in an awkward spot regarding my visa. I’ll be going to Immigrations on Monday to try and patch things up, so pray that I will find favor with the officials there.
