Bible Translation Chapel at PIU

916 Friday (9) (1024x768)

Yesterday was our annual Bible Translation chapel featuring PIU professor and Isles of the Sea Bible translator Peter Knapp. Peter splits his time between training future (we hope) Bible translators at PIU and working with the translation on the Mokilese Bible. Peter shared some stories about his time working on a minority language Bible translation in central Russia in the 90’s and early 2000’s, and then talked about how he and his family came to Micronesia. He also shared with the students some opportunities in Bible translation at PIU.

The students came into chapel (I was trying to get the baby riding into chapel in the center of the picture on the left but I was too slow) and Mayson opened the chapel in prayer (right)

The dorm guys led the music and worship time. Then “grandpa” Steve Bradley (you can see him on the TV monitor) greeted us from South Carolina and prayed for the school. It was a blessing to hear his voice.
