Greg Burgess (right) who serves with Grace Brethren International Missions and Editions Cle in a literature ministry in France and Africa, is leaving for Ghana tomorrow. He will be attending a ‘train the trainer’ workshop given by Media Associates International (see www.littworld.org). The training will help Burgess to be more effective when working with those involved in publishing in Africa.
He will also be translating for at least one French-speaker and will have the chance to interact with one of the writers he is working with for the African youth magazine. He requests prayer for the following:
For my family’s safety and well being while I’m gone
For my own safety in travel
That I would acquire skills that will be useful to me later when working in publishing contexts in Africa
That I would do a good job translating
That the time I spend with African authors will serve to build good communication and relationships with them
That my time spent with the leadership of Media Associates International would go well and that it would serve to lay groundwork for future collaboration
