As the translation project continues to move forward, opposition intensifies on several fronts. The recording session for Esther is scheduled for next week, but we need your prayers:
1) After a successful surgery last June to remove cancer from her liver, Mrs. Ogata, wife of our video technician, is not feeling well, and has been hospitalized.
2) Uiko, the translator and signer, has the pain in her elbow again.
3) Mr. Hori, translation coordinator, is struggling with constant ringing in one of his ears.
On top of all this, we recently received word from Japan Bible Society that due to a restructuring of their systems, their normal quarterly support will have to be cut, and the next installment will not be available to us until November. This puts ViBi in a severe state of financial crisis. Pray!
