Email Update, March 2017

January 5, 2019 in Wycliffe, Africa, Bible translation, Front, Tanzania by Mark

Every few weeks we send out newsletters or email updates. Our latest update from March 2017 is now available, with news of our time in the UK and Marks’ trip back to Tanzania. If you would like to sign up to receive these regularly, you can do so here.

Thanks for your prayers and support for us, as we continue to support Bible translation. As we mentioned last time, we traveled to the UK in mid-December, and a lot has happened in the last three months!

Laura’s health

Our reason for spending a few months in the UK has been to investigate some pain that Laura has been having. The pain has been there for over ten years, but the last few months it has been worse than normal, so we are hoping that it can be diagnosed.

At the moment we are still waiting to see a specialist, but in the meantime we have also been experimenting with some dietary changes, to see what might help.

Working from a distance

While in the UK we are both continuing to do our jobs online. Laura still talks with many colleagues as they think through various challenges in their life and work. She is also continuing to provide child safety training, and to respond to any emergency situations as they arise.

Mark is also keeping in daily contact with our colleagues throughout Tanzania and Uganda, as he manages the various projects and provides direction to the language work happening in both countries.

We have very much enjoyed seeing friends and family in the UK, and spending Christmas with Mark’s family. We also had the opportunity to attend Mark’s grandfather’s funeral, who died in January at the age of 97 years and 365 days!
