We have received this update from the translation event in the Pacific:

In a meeting with about 30 church leaders on Saturday following the Opening Ceremony, we had unanimous approval to move forward with the translation of the Old Testament into the local language. One of the Elders exclaimed, “We have been waiting for this!”
