Don and Marie Burgess Baja Tarahumara Ministry, Chihuahua, Mexico
Don and Marie Burgess serve as PBC missionaries to the Tarahumara people. Their ministry this year centers again around the Bocoyna Tarahumara dialect.
Using Joy to the World funds, Don and Marie translated and audio recorded the books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, 1 and 2 Peter, James, Titus, Jude, Hebrews, and half of Matthew. The audio versions, along with printed Scripture, are distributed to Tarahumaras out in their ranches, in hospitals, and in places where they work, such as apple picking and tourism areas. Plans for 2020 are to finish Matthew and translate and record the gospel of John which will be made into 43 videos that can be downloaded from scriptureearth.org and used on cell phones. Don and Marie are thankful for their home church and the many who have prayed for the Tarahumaras over many years.
