This freshwater stream runs into the sea and to a casual glance, nothing seems to change. However, the change is quite drastic. The smaller stream is embraced and its constitution is forever altered. Its freshwater characteristics are absorbed by the sea and the water no longer can sustain things that used to require it. This can happen when a smaller culture is embraced by a larger culture. If care is not taken, all the benefits of the smaller culture are lost. One of the ways smaller cultures can be sustained is by translating their oral language into a written form. This preserves their language and their culture. Pray that new projects could be started in areas of Papua New Guinea that need them. Pray that resources to enable the Bible translation and language development effort to continue would be made available.
