Work by the Argentine Bible Society on typesetting the Toba New Testament is taking place in Buenos Aires. Pray for the accuracy of this work, prior to printing in Korea, and for the Toba people, coordinator Michael Browne and his Toba translator colleagues as they eagerly await publication and launch in December.
Also in the Argentine Chaco the annual Wichi Marathon is scheduled for this Sunday, when Indians and non-Indians run along one of the roads to highlight a particular issue. This year the focus is on prevention of cancer of the uterus, which has claimed a number of lives in the area in the past year. Pray for Alec Deane and the organizers, for participants and spectators to have fun, and that the message will be communicated and heeded.
On Friday Felipe Canuto flies home to Brazil after ten months as a SAMS Latin Volunteer based in a parish in Sheffield. As we give thanks for Felipe’s ministry here, particularly among young people, let’s pray for his journey and readjustment to life in northeast Brazil.
Finally, the funeral of former missionary Amy Nicholls, whose sudden death we reported last week, takes place on Monday. Pray for her daughter and son-in-law, who’ve flown in from Canada, and also for SAMS’ Finance Director Philip Tadman, who will take part in the service.
