Please pray for Dawn as she prepares to return to the UK for Home Assignment soon. Pray that handing over translation work to others will go smoothly, for Dawn to be able to say goodbye to local friends well, and for energy to make all the arrangements that need to be made before she travels. International travel can still be unpredictable, so please also pray against last-minute cancellations and other challenges that can make travel difficult.
Thank you for praying for the meetings to decide what the future of ministry among the Karimojong should be. The two teams are merging into one, and Caroline Bell has been asked to lead the team.

Pray for the process of Bible translation among the Alagwa of Tanzania. Work on the Gospel of John is almost complete and the team are moving towards translating the book of Acts. Pray that the Muslim translators would understand who Jesus truly is as they grapple with the work of translation and that the Christian translators would grow in the depth of their understanding of and love for Jesus.
