Reflecting the glory of God

Next week, we head to our remote village in Papua New Guinea in preparation for our next Bible translation workshop. This time, our teammate John will be joining us from the States, and we will conduct final consultant checking of Titus and Philemon for the 10 language teams we work with.

These are relatively small language groups, each between about 400 and 5000 speakers. Yet each one represents yet another community for whom God has done marvelous things to redeem a people for himself — people redeemed from unavoidable selfish and unkind actions, redeemed from false belief, redeemed from fear, from death, from terrifying spirits, people redeemed from the devil — those who will surround the throne of Jesus and give him great glory from every nation, tribe, people, and language.

These are pictures from the recent singsing at our project’s building dedication. Look at these faces, and see people who were made to reflect the glory of God in Christ.

From Titus 1:2…

I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. (NLT)

My P.N.G. aunties first called us so that we could get bilased (decorated).

They started getting the arm bands and putting them on my little sister and I.

They stuck pretty flowers in the bracelets, I think it’s so cool how they got it all together and ready.

JB’s (Jenny Beth’s) turn!

Isn’t she cute? Funny, she looks tired! Look closely, see how fancy the beading is.

Even Jacob got to look beautiful! (hhhaaaa) Now look at his necklace’s pattern.

Look at this kind of paint! It comes out of a fuzzy pod. The seeds are red. They rub it, and it’s like paint!

Me too! I get a turn to get painted.

Now they get a turn to look nice in front of the camera.

Here we are all together. They made a hard effort to get everything ready. I love my village!
