If only I had more time, there are so many more good things that I could
do!!!!  I don't think that I will have time to translate any full
chapters of the Bible.  We will be writing some scriptures down for
commenting.  Your comment has inspired me!!!  I think I will try and
pass a few to the computer and post theme.  You know that it is so much
harder beeing that I'm not connected.  I'll have to set up each and
every piece of vocabulary.   Hopefully I can get to doing it and publish
a few to add to the website.
