James & Lois Hafford
Wycliffe translates the Bible for communities that do not have Scripture into a language they understand. And Bible translation can serve as a crucial component of Jesus's commission to go and make disciples. James and Lois are Bible translators among the Wuvulu people of Papua New Guinea (PNG). In their years of immersive village living, they translated the New Testament and are now working with Wuvulu translators to finish a draft of the Old Testament. In addition to translation, the Haffords' roles in Wycliffe include consulting and teaching linguistics in PNG and at the Canadian Institute of Linguistics.
Praise: We are grateful for the opportunity to translate the Wuvulu Bible. Praise: We praise the Lord for our expanded roles in teaching and consulting. Praise: We are thankful for the Bethany community.
Prayer: Pray for the Haffords' daily devotional times in the Bible and prayer. Prayer: Pray for God's protection and wisdom for the Wuvulu translation team. Prayer: Pray for the Haffords to thrive in their expanded consulting and teaching roles.
