How do you grow vegetables in the jungles of Papua New Guinea? You need to clear a space and that requires a lot of hard work. An area is cleared of trees and then the thick brush is burned. Small drainage channels are made because of the frequent and heavy rains and then you are ready to plant. A lot of work occurs before you even think about putting something in the ground. So it is with translation work. Sometimes years of preparation are required in order to get to a place where you can get even one small book translated. It takes perseverance and hard work before the fruit can be seen on the vine. Pray for the language workers and Bible translators working in approximately 200 languages in PNG. Pray for patience and success.
