Let's say you are a missionary to Africa, working with a tribe where many speak English, but their native language or dialect is unwritten. The decision is made to do an oral (or audio) translation of the NT. How would you set out to do this?
3. Choosing national translators?
4. Training the translators?
5. Time tables?

7. The role of nationals?
8. Recording or memorizing?
So I am not in need of a RA seminary degree. I want to get a doctorate so that I can use it in my current ministry and maybe teach at some of the other online seminaries that are out there. I already hold 2 RA Masters degrees and an RA PhD so again, no worried about accreditation. UNISA is my first choice, but it is also going to be much harder to be accepted into that program. Which of these schools would you recommend? Why?

Would like to request prayers for my dog. Maybe it seems silly, but he is important to me and I see pets as family members.
Took him to the vet just about a month ago because he has heart issues he's on lifelong meds for and he was beginning to show symptoms that can mean heart failure, so I got all super worried and had the vet look at him.

Something like that.
Pretty interesting times.
I think it was in the 1970's when the SDA church was at about 4 million and the Southern Baptists were about 14.x Million.
Now - in January of this year Christianity Today points out that SDAs are around 18.5 Million and the 5th largest Christian denomination in the world. -...
I'm really surprised that this great University wasn't on your list of schools. This is a Christian University in Phoenix AZ. I almost got my Masters Degree in Christian Counseling, but my finances wasn't working for me. Still I love this school, and I can't say anything bad about it besides the cost. I was going to school online even though I lived right down the street from campus. Has anybody else gone to this school, or do you have any thoughts about it? Have you even heard of it?

12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the Lord.
Rotherham 12 And Joshua rose early in the morning,—and the priests bare the ark of Yahweh;
These are my thoughts.
We should serve the Lord as soon as we get up and we should not let the day by without doing something with Him.
I started riding a bike today went 4 miles. Will be working up to 8 miles. I weighed in at 341 (I am 6' 5" so it is not as bad as it might sound) although my goal is to lose 100 pounds.
My cough as improved greatly and I am not eating cough drops anymore.
I am also going on an oatmeal diet with supplements for the next month.
If you think of it I would appreciate prayer.
