Dear Friends at Trinity, Appleton,

 

While there in the U.S. it is the colder time of year, here in this part of Ethiopia, it is the hottest time of the year even though we are also on the same side of the equator as you are.  We live on a mountain in the town of Gidole (gee-dough-lay) where the temperatures are quite comfortable.  But right now, we are at a much lower altitude in Arba Minch while Jim consults with the Zayze language team and checks over their book of Matthew.  They are making good progress and hope to finish within a few days.  We will be glad to get back to cooler temperatures in Gidole but also happy that the Zayzes are another book closer to finishing their New Testament.

 

We are grateful for your partnership in this translation work and, although we are not right there next to you telling you thank you at each accomplishment here, that thankfulness is in our hearts.  We could not do what we do here without your prayers and gifts all along the way.  Thanks also for the Christmas cards and letters that we have received.  It is always nice to hear news from home and from your part of the U.S.

 

Blessings and love in Christ,

 

 Jim    and    Susan
