UPDATES

Sara has begun studies related to ministry work. The diploma is known as the CILTA (Spanish acronym for International Linguistics, Translation, and Literacy Course). These courses are necessary for a good performance in the Bible translation ministry.

This time has allowed her to be trained for His work because she is learning the importance of the church of Christ in supporting the revitalization of endangered languages and the importance of translating the Bible. After all, God wants to speak to each person in their mother tongue. The Bible ministry constantly quotes Revelation 7:9–10.

Sara thanks God for allowing her to study at CILTA. Sara has already covered 40% of the diploma course’s cost, leaving $2,300 remaining. If the brothers and sisters feel compelled to support her, they can contribute in various ways, such as covering the $300 tuition for the I and II semesters, funding the $500 field trip (which involves conducting practical work in two ethnic groups in Peru), or covering the 1,500 dollar pension.

FINANCIAL NEEDS

The most urgent need is to pay for the first tuition and the first field trip before the end of April, totaling $400.

PERSONAL/SPIRITUAL NEEDS

Sara would like spiritual coverage and to be able to concentrate on studying while she deals with various personal problems at home.
