After the fun, I switched gears and settled into a week of translation work with a local pastor named Roy who is of the Kapin people. The Kapin people have been desiring a Bible in their own heart language for over 30 years now and from setbacks to a need for missionaries, they still do not have much of the Bible available to them (and none of the NT).
