Where to from here?

Hanna Schulz is a woman with vision, energy and calling – a calling to serve as a Bible translator. This year Hanna has relocated from Adelaide to Kangaroo Ground, Melbourne following the completion of her theological studies at Australian Lutheran College in 2010. At the Wycliffe/Summer Institute of Linguistics headquarters in Melbourne, Hanna is immersing herself in the intensive language studies and courses relating to the life of a fulltime Bible translator in a foreign land.

Currently Hanna is known as a “Member-in-training” of Lutheran Bible Translator Australia (LBTA) – the LCA organisation which has also supported the Bible translation work of Margaret Mickan and Bill and Di Eckermann. (Both Margaret and the Eckermann’s continue in various aspects of Bible translation and literacy related tasks).

At this point in time Hanna doesn’t know where she will be working and with whom. When her studies are completed at the end of this year and when there is sufficient financial support offered for Hanna, she will leave the comforts of life in Australia to go to live and work with a people group who do not have the scriptures in their “mother tongue”.

As this year moves quickly on, Hanna’s invitation to you is to join her in prayer as she discerns where God will lead her to work and with whom she will share this translation task with.

This story was also published in the June 2011 edition of Border Crossings, the magazine of LCA International Mission.
