This is from our Translation's Ministry.
Currently, we have several ongoing and also NEW languages. We continue expanding and ministering in Slovak, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Afrikaans and recently began translations in Turkish and Swedish!
Dear Partners, THANK YOU DEAREST PARTNERS. Here is just one of many thank you notes we received from one of our translators who's a man.
Marian in Slovakia: "THANK YOU for having it proofread. This book is a REAL GEM (the men's RYM) and it definitely deserves to be translated in a way that God will speak through it to anyone who opens it. No one (except Jesus) is perfect and I really appreciate if someone corrects my errors. Please let me know of each of them and I will either correct the text or explain why I did so. You know, Slovak and English are quite different languages. They have completely different stylistics, syntax, use of tenses... And this also applies to the Bible. I always tried to choose the most appropriate translation. I worked with 6 different Bible versions – just to pinpoint the meaning of Erin's words. Of course, I may have made mistakes."
"Hello, after some silence from my side, I have some good news to share. Finally, we were able to finish work on Slovak version of RYM for men. A few days ago, we got our first 1000 books from the printer. I am sending you the final version of this text. It is after second proofreading and some other corrections/translation improvements were introduced as well. You can use this text on your website, as it is more precise and far better compared to what you offer now.
Also, I'll be able to oversee the e-shop. Presently, we are out of all other titles (RYM - women, My Beloved and A Wise Woman are all sold out!) and I am preparing them again for printing. Can you please send me the cover for RYM and Wise Woman? Thanks in advance.
We can't tell you how much JOY this email brought us!! The Lord is so good!! Also, how kind of you to share the pictures of how good the paperbacks turned out. WOW, how encouraging to see a thousand books that will be distributed throughout Slovakia! Thank you so much for taking over the e-shop.
In our bookstore, we've already replaced the men's Slovak RYM eBook with the one you sent us. Marian, thank you so much again. Very good hearing from you.
Our Slovak / Slovenský ministry continues to be blessed: Marian in Slovakia is who translated the men's RYM and worked with others to begin a publishing company, sowing back into RMI with tithes from book sales. Pictured are 1000 paperbacks spreading throughout Slovakia!
Also, Marian had requested the A Wise Woman cover components to begin work on that too.
This is a portion of Marian's Translator Application to really appreciate how He calls us to work for HIM:
It was a suggestion of one of our local priests because He knew I was fighting to restore my marriage and that's when he told me about How God Will Restore Your Marriage. I bought it from your website (along with A Wise Man), but I only read RYM so far because it is in English.
Thank you, Lord, for what You're doing in the hearts of men and women throughout your earth. Again, this is why I love working with the translations ministry because I get to witness first hand how one person using their bilingual skills can make a difference in their country, just as Marian has done translating and birthing a publishing company in Slovakia. He's called each of us and wants to use each of you in a special way too, it's just asking Him to show you and if we can, we will help you fulfill your call—just as He helps me each and every day.
Remember what is says in 1 Corinthians 12: 14-26, "For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot says, 'Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,' it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. And if the ear says, 'Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,' it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. If they were all one member, where would the body be? But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you'; or again the head to the feet, 'I have no need of you.' On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are Christ's body, and individually members of it."
If you're bilingual and would like to bless others, please write to me at Translations@rmiew.com
We'd LOVE to add you to our Team!
If you're not bilingual but you also feel called, be sure to read Veronica's Praise Report to see how she simply did what each of you can do and also be supported by RMI as the next generation of RMI Ministries!! Then in faith, fill out our Minister Application to commit to HIM your desire to be used by Him! As Esther 4:14 says, as His bride, “And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”
