Tb’anilx titz’jlin Krist – The Mam people of Guatemala use either the Spanish “Feliz Navidad” or this greeting, which means “the birth of Christ is very special”.
It has been a year of transition for L.A.M.P., Byron and Maria. Karen and Andy Vaters, Wycliffe Missionaries who began LAMP, are transitioning back to Canada and turning the ministry over to Byron and Maria. Byron and Maria also became LEI-Canada missionaries. They are raising their support as well as managing LAMP. It has been a year of discerning God’s direction and finding a new balance. Classes continue with several classes ready to begin the 3rd phase of discipleship. Byron also has had opportunity to participate in training events in other areas where he speaks of the role of literacy among indigenous languages.
Thanks for your prayers and contributions for this ministry – 2014 promises to be an exciting and expanding year.
