Update from the Suggetts

New Beginnings

Believe it or not, the above photo was taken in our backyard during the Christmas holidays! No worries, since then, winter has truly arrived and we are enjoying snow for the first time in a long time.

This brief newsletter is just a quick announcement about our changing roles in Wycliffe. As you know, our work for the Turka people of Burkina Faso is coming to an end. We are pleased to announce that on April 1st, we will begin in our new roles with Wycliffe: Colin will be joining *SIL’s Language Technology group as their lead tester for Bloom ― a software product designed to boost literature production among minority language groups across the globe. Dot will be splitting her time: first as exegetical assistant to the South Asia group, and second, as personal coach for new Wycliffe missionaries, helping them succeed in communicating effectively with their supporting constituency. More details of these roles will be communicated in future newsletters. In the meantime, we wish to take this moment to thank you once again for your partnership in our work ― we couldn’t do it without you.

A common question people are starting to ask us is whether or not we will continue to need financial support for our future work with Wycliffe. The answer is, “Yes, absolutely!” If you have any questions regarding this, please don’t hesitate to ask.

God’s blessings to you,

Colin & Dot Suggett

*SIL is Wycliffe’s main partner organization in field work and language technology worldwide.
