Dear Friends, It’s here!! Yesterday I received a copy of the Mengen New Testament in the mail!! It has a nice shiny red cover and is about 700 pages thick. It was an exciting day for me to see the culmination of 15 years’ worth of work finally come to fruition.

Dear Friends, Happy Springtime! Here in Alberta, the days continue to be gray and snowy, with record-breaking wintery weather still. (I’m not the only one tired of it!!) Thankfully there is a promise of warmer weather by the end of this week…finally. I’m ready for greener days ahead!

Dear Friends,

What a month it has been!! Less than 4 weeks ago, I was finishing up a translation check in Hoskins and was planning for the final check of the Mengen New Testament the following month. I never would have dreamed how things would turn out in just a matter of weeks.

At the time of my translation check, I experienced a major flare-up of MS symptoms where I had pain in my eyes and numbness in the entire right side of my body. At the same time my vision was getting worse and for a couple of days I was nearly blind from pain and blurred vision. After giving it a week or so to see if my vision would recover, I realized that things were not going to improve quickly. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking day when I finally decided to postpone the final translation check for the Mengen New Testament and return to Canada for medical care.
