We've been a bit unsettled.

Days after we arrived in Kenya, questions about our tax status sent us on a whirlwind journey of uncertainty and half a dozen housing situations.

Living Like Nomads

Things have not gone as expected since we got here. We weren't even sure if we'd be able to stay.
But God is taking care of us.
See what we get to be part of despite all the crazy.

Literacy in Turkana

The Turkana have had a New Testament translation for more than 30 years, but low literacy keeps them from reading it. Megan gave 6 weeks to develop literacy materials.

Paper or pixels

Phones are quickly becoming the main medium for reading in Africa, even for unreached people groups. Alex is exploring methods to better facilitate digital publishing. 

Teaching language tech

Alex taught language technology and gave tech support for translation, Scripture engagement, and literacy practitioners from across Africa in 10 intense weeks of training.

Next month: Tanzania

In August, we'll continue the work we did in Turkana with the Kagulu language community in Tanzania.
