Do you experience times when you feel less than influential in your home? With crazy-busy schedules and to-do lists miles long, how does one distinguish what has the greatest influence on their home?

Featured Missionary

Mike and Rhonda CochranMike and Rhonda Cochran
Wycliffe Bible Translators/SIL

Mike and Rhonda minister with Wycliffe Bible Translators/SIL, which serves communities worldwide in language development and Bible translation. Mike is the Language Technology Development Director for SIL. Rhonda works in education overseeing teachers, helping families with educational needs, and working with missionary kids.

The Language Technology team Mike leads is on the cutting edge of developing software that will facilitate language development and Scripture translation. For example, the Scripture app-builder uses digital publishing as a quick, cost-effective way to distribute translated Scripture and other local-language content on Android devices. Another, SIL's Bloom software, enables people with basic computer skills to publish books in their own mother tongue using existing formatting and special features to guide them in simple bookmaking. The software team is working with Google and Microsoft to extend the LDML standard to support minority languages. The team has created web applications to collaborate in dictionary creation and Scripture checking, and the computer aided translation project is now being tested by targeted groups. The technology team's goal is to facilitate translators work using these new technologies.

Prayer Requests:
1. For wisdom and success for Mike's team as they experiment with machine-assisted translation strategies.
2. For good working relationships with other organizations with which Mike and his team partner.
3. For physical, spiritual and mental health for Mike and Rhonda and the technology team.
