I'm excited about tonight. We're all going to the Perspectives class to hear Joanne Shetler speak. Several years ago we read her book, And the Word Came with Power. It is the riveting story of her life among the Balangao people of the northern Philippines, the translation of the scriptures into the Balangao language, and the transformation that resulted. What a privilege to get to hear her in person! Having just sent off their applications for a Wycliffe trip to Burkina Faso this summer, I know Thomas and Andrew will benefit from this opportunity to hear a hero.
