Ring News and Prayer 2021:
For in the time of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:5
You have been our partners in sadness and joy. A few days ago we talked with our son and family in S. Asia, where he, his wife, and their five children are recovering from Covid-19. Though getting their strength back, they will not be able to come this summer for our family reunion and 50th wedding anniversary. Every day they get news about their friends and neighbors dying from Covid. It is sweeping through their entire country of residence.
Another son and his wife and two boys in Singapore also are facing renewed restrictions due to Covid, and they also will not be able to travel this summer.
Please pray for patience as the Lord guides these couples and comforts them in this time of renewed lockdown where they are.
Andy’s early morning translation consulting is paused as the situation in S. Asia affects each of the language teams and their families. Our teams have postponed the checking of their translations, and many are either sick or caring for family members that are sick. We rejoice that the director of the program and his wife were both evacuated from the capital city to available hospital beds in a town eight hours away and are now recovering from Covid. The resurgence of the virus caught everyone by surprise.
We hope you are doing well. We love to hear from you. Let’s pray with patience for the world-wide progress of Bible translation and the people hearing about Jesus in these days of difficulty.
Love in the Lord,
Kate & Andy Ring
