MISSION CAPSULE: Presbyterians Sharing … supports the Rev. Dr. Paul McLean as he works with Bible translation teams to translate the Bible into indigenous languages in Taiwan. The work with Tayal began in the 1950’s when PCC mission staff Clare and Grace McGill converted the spoken language into writing for the first time. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Paul met online three mornings a week with lead translator Watan Yawi to check spelling and verify consistent translation of biblical terms (e.g. temple, prophet, Lord) and over 2000 parallel passages in the Old and New Testaments. They finished at the end of March. Proofreaders had three months before the translation was sent to the Bible Society in Taiwan for typesetting and printing. 110 Tayal churches in the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan are eager to read the whole Bible in their own Language. Thanks be to God!

AND NOW, WISDOM FROM THE CHILDREN. WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT? (taken from papers written by a class of 8 year olds)

Grandparents are a lady and man who have no little children of their own. They like other people’s.

A grandfather is a man, and a grandmother is a lady!

Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them ….

They are so old they shouldn’t play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the shops and give us money.

When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

The show us and talk to us about the colours of the flowers and also why we shouldn’t step on the ‘cracks.”

They don’t say, “hurry up”.

Have a good week MB
