Never before have I experienced so clearly the reality of Jesus’ words in Matthew 9, ‘the harvest is ready’, as I did last week.

A day in the life of… a Bible translator

It’s 4.30am and I (Sue) am surprisingly bright-eyed. I actually woke up before my alarm was set to go off. But why the excitement? Today I’m joining a group of people in the southern Philippines to celebrate the translation of the New Testament into their own language!
