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.

Many years ago when I first started writing prayer letters, I remember trying to come up with a catchy name for mine. A lot of people use alliteration like “Preheim Pages” or something catchy like that, but I chose to go with the name “Guided by His Hand.” And that’s how it has been from day one, trusting the Lord every step and with every decision. He has truly guided me every day for 20+ years with New Tribes Mission and He will continue to do so in the days ahead.

Dear Friends,
Jan. 13, 2018
Thanks so much for your prayers for me! I most certainly have needed them this week! After many trials and tribulations and answers to prayer, we were able to see another 7 books completed in the Mengen language! The translation check went fairly smoothly and I will have to work out some bumps still, but all in all, it was good. My next translation check is due to start in February.
