When missionary Darcy Berglund hears her Semandang co-worker say, "I can’t say that. It doesn’t make any sense," then she knows the Bible translation she is working on needs more work. Currently she is drafting the Gospel of Matthew and in April the books of Revelation and 1 Corinthians will be checked. Please pray that the Scriptures will be accurately translated and clearly understandable to the Semandangs.
