Hero of Heaven

We joined the fellowship at Calvary Baptist Church in Claremont, NH for their annual missions conference held September 21-23. There         was a special emphasis on languages and how language effects the communication of God's Word.

At the conference we met a special missionary lady. Betty Camp, "Hero of Heaven" is a major contributor in the translation of the New Testament (Dues Itaumbyry) in Kurâ Rakaiel language for the Kurâ-Bakairi tribe located in Central Brazil. Betty has worked 23 years on this project which has taken 3 translation teams and over 34 years to complete. A dedication service was held June 16th of this year in which 600 New Testaments were made available to the Kurâ-Bakairi people in their heart language. Her hope is that they will now learn to live what they will now be reading. This is the second NT translation project Miss Camp has participated in and has seen completed. She served in Bolivia prior to her years in Brazil. It is sobering to think there are over 2800 people groups still without the written word of God in the world.

Dan gave the Sunday morning message encouraging others to live with purpose, bringing God's love to life through discipleship.

Please be praying as we travel to Hudson, Maine this weekend. Our desire is to see others obeying God's call to make disciples.
