This is Joshua Lui, a national Bible translator from the Western part of the Solomon Islands. Joshua is the chairman of the Solomon Islands Bible Translation and Literacy Program (SIBTLP), a group of Solomon Islanders dedicated to Bible Translation and Literacy. Joshua is currently translating the New Testament into his mother tongue, Simbo.
This afternoon Joshua gave a biennial report for SIBTLP at our conference. We are very blessed to work who have the dedication to help bring God’s Word to their own people. Often they work alone and their efforts are not always understood or supported by people in their community.
After each personal report, we all gather around the person or couple and spend time praying for them, their family and ministry. It’s truly a blessing to be surrounded by friends and colleagues and be lifted up before the throne.
