So when she arrives in June she will first go through a training which will cover (1) culture, (2) language, (3) Bible translation, (4) medical skills, and (5) survival skills--yes, I said survival skills. She may be put in life-threatening situations and they want her to know how to make it out there. I guess it's a sort of "Bible Translator vs. Wild" kind of thing!
I was quite touched when she said that it would take 8-20 years to complete the translation project once she starts. This young woman, in the prime of her life, is laying it all down for Christ that others might know him and love him and serve him. and perhaps someday go to other nations for him. May the Lord richly bless her and grant her the power to fulfill her calling.
Catherine, you really inspired me today, thanks for humbly sharing what the Lord's doing in your life.
Here are two links, one to Catherine's blog and the other to Wycliffe.
