Andrew and Janet Persson – advising Wycliffe Bible Translators in South Sudan
Andrew and Janet are due to travel to Juba in South Sudan on Monday 4 April for three weeks to help check the work of two teams who are translating the Bible into their own languages. Andrew will be checking the book of Leviticus in Murle, a language he first worked on back in 1982. Their whole New Testament was published in 1996 and now a new team is working on the Old Testament. Janet will be checking the book of Job with the Dinka translators with whom she has worked several times over the last few years.

Please pray
  • For visas to come through in time
  • For safe travel and good health for Andrew and Janet throughout the visit
  • That nothing will prevent the translators from turning up for work each day to make the most of the time available
  • For good communication in explaining difficult points to make the translations as clear as possible
  • For inspiration and spiritual lessons to come from these less accessible books
