Mark & Barbara Phippen

“Most weekdays, I (Barbara) sit in our bedroom-cum-study and sit at the desk planning English lessons or Bible studies. It’s lovely to be able to look out of the window in front of the desk and look at the beautiful acacia …I’m also excited to be asked to teach English on a 2-week course in May here in Karen, Nairobi, for students from many African countries who are studying for degrees in theology. They are on a distance-learning course for Bible translators, consultants to Bible translators, or Scripture Engagement (i.e. those encouraging Africans to use the Bible that has now been translated into their own heart language). They all need to improve their English for their studies. It’s a privilege to be a small link in the chain of Bible translation.”
