Babies, Babies, Babies!!!
Our kids’ ministry is growing! We are excited each Sunday to welcome new families into our community. We are also excited this summer to welcome at least 3 new babies that will be born in July & August to PCC Families. In order to truly welcome all this new life, we will need to expand our nursery team by at least 3 new volunteers. Nursery volunteers serve one Sunday a month, during the 10:30 service.

Cross-Cultural Communication Specialists’ Praise & Prayer Requests
Paul and Sue Hoiland are members of Pasadena Covenant Church and cross-cultural workers we support. “Thank you, Pasadena Covenant family, for your ongoing partnership with us in the ministry of Wycliffe Bible Translators. It is a privilege to serve together, making God’s Word accessible to those who have not yet heard it in their own language. There has been a shift since “the olden days” when we went to Guatemala to live among the Sipakapense people to translate the Scriptures for them. Increasingly, Wycliffe personnel are serving as trainers and consultants, enabling national colleagues to translate into their own languages. Many are very capable, but lack the necessary resources for the challenges they face. Paul’s work focuses on Translator’s Notes (TN), a commentary series that is a valuable tool specifically geared to assist mother-tongue translators. He is currently delving into the poetry of the Psalms and beginning TN for this book, one of the most desired portions of the Old Testament. Paul studies the Hebrew text and reads dozens of Bible versions and commentaries, gleaning insights that will be most helpful to translators. He then writes the Notes in clear, concise ESL-level English. Both nationals and expat translators rely on TN for guidance in producing Bible translations that clearly and accurately reflect the biblical text. This work is a privilege and a responsibility and Paul appreciates your prayers as he depends on God for wisdom and insight. Sue’s role is to provide care for Wycliffe staff (about 40 individuals) around the world and on home assignment. She enjoys building relationships with them and getting to know the personal challenges they face. When members return to the US on home assignment Sue debriefs them and makes sure they receive the resources they need. Through email and Skype calls, she maintains contact with members on the field, providing help and encouragement so they can thrive in their lives and ministries. Several individuals and families will be returning in the next couple months, so it will be a busy time. Sue will also travel to Wycliffe headquarters in Florida in late June and early August to serve in a re-entry program and debrief several returning cross-cultural workers. Praise and thanks: increasing numbers of national translators involved in Bible translation for the excitement and challenge of new beginnings: TN on Psalms in Paul’s newly renovated home office for a ministry role that uses Sue’s gifts of listening, serving and praying Prayer requests: motivation and perseverance for national translators wisdom for Paul as he researches Psalms and writes Translator’s Notes insight for Sue as she seeks to be sensitive to the needs of Wycliffe members and provide appropriate help and encouragement.”
