    This year, former Philadelphian, Jacqueline Huggins — through her involvement in translating the New Testament into the Filipino Kagayanen language—will become the first African-American woman to ever complete a New Testament translation. [LINK]

    "The work was accomplished through the combined efforts of a team of three translators and three support staff. It is a diverse team Asian, African-American and Caucasian made up of Americans, Malaysian Chinese and Singaporean Chinese."

    "The first copies of the New Testament are expected to be delivered in February 2008."

    Colossians 3:10-11

    10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

    11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

    Wycliffe's Biography of Jacqueline Huggins [LINK]

    "Because of her love for languages, she believes God’s will for her life is to share the Word with the Bibleless peoples of the world through Bible translation."

    But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
    If they were all one part, where would the body be?
    As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

    1 Corinthians 12:18-20 NIV

    Rejoice brothers and sisters, God has chosen someone special to complete a task he wanted done.

    Rob
