Jurgen & Katja Hofmann

The Hofmanns are currently on Home Assignment in the Netherlands. “In general, we just continue with what we normally do. The children do not have a summer holiday like most children in the Netherlands. That is not as sad as you might think. It is impractical to stick to the normal Dutch school holidays because we travel back and forth a lot. Katja tries to adapt the schedule to the situation as much as possible. That way, the children don’t have to panic because they don’t finish their work before the holiday starts… Jurgen is digitising the gospel of Luke in the Tanala dialect. This is quite difficult to do. He cannot go into the village to ask how to pronounce a certain word. The Tanala dialect is still largely unwritten. Jurgen writes the words phonetically but that is not an easy job.” Please pray for the Hofmann family as they ‘work’ from home. Pray for Katja as she teaches their children at home, and for Jurgen as he works on translating Luke’s gospel remotely.
