The Importance of Tea Breaks
|One workshop activity made a big impact on participants. It involved one marking pen attached to 25 strings with the group attempting to write the word BODY by holding onto the end of their individual strings. With some "helpful" voices shouting "UP" or "DOWN", can you imagine some of the people's perspective in the circle?|

The workshop experience did indeed turn out to be a bonding experience, and not just with John’s existing partners; he also sensed a growing bond with a second organization. The communal meals and tea times were wonderful opportunities to get to know some of the other Nigerian Bible translation leaders. One such new relationship was forged with one of the directors as John expressed his desire to improve his Nigerian Pidgin language skills. A subsequent day at tea, this same director asked John if Wycliffe UK supported projects. Once they had cleared up that John was not from the UK but worked with Wycliffe USA, they laughed and he promised to be in touch regarding Bible translation projects they would like to collaborate on in the future.
Thanks so much for your prayers and support that enable meetings and encounters like this which help to further the work of Bible translation.
