Take a break

Place of rest
Place of rest

In Papua New Guinea, an open bamboo-floored structure with a roof overhead to keep the sun out is a great place to lay down in the middle of the day and escape from the hot sun.  The gentle breezes cool the body while the rounded edges of the bamboo seem to gently massage the tired back muscles. You wouldn’t want to sleep here all night but for short periods it provides a relaxing place and a much needed respite from the day’s activities. Rest is needed from the translation effort as well. Sometimes a break is needed in the midst of the work in order to clear the head and rest the mind. Pray that some translators and language development workers would have the wisdom and find the time to take the needed breaks that will restore their strength.
