Robert continues to author the Exegetical Summary of Acts. His co-author, Belinda Cheng, left the project on March 1st to take a position in Church relations with the Chinese diaspora in Canada. That leaves Robert as the sole author in the project. He is currently working on verse 21 in chapter 13. His goal is to complete Acts 1 - 14 by the end of September, in order to publish Volume 1 by the end of the year.
As the Coordinator for SIL Dictionary & Lexicography Services Unit (DLS), I am very blessed to have the following people working with me on the team. Without them, my work would overwhelm me and I would not be able to provide the Services that DLS provides. Kevin joined DLS in 2012; his wife joined in 2013. Cindy and Katrina are volunteers; Cindy joined last year and Katrina and Wes have joined in the last few months. Thank you, Lord for all of them. Verna
