Disappointments. Life is full of them. They often come at the most inopportune times. Language development teams and Bible translators are not immune to them. But looking back at these times, it is not unusual for a team to see that what appeared to be a disappointment, actually turned out to be an unrecognised opportunity. Pray that as Bible translators in Papua New Guinea face these up and down times, that they can persevere on the course that has been laid out before them.
