From Cuba to Cambridge
With the number of Christian churches in Cuba increasing steadily, the need to equip pastors is a serious challenge. Moises has been at Tyndale House since March 2013, studying hard before returning to Cuba, not only as a pastor of a large church whilst assisting at two others, but also as a teacher of other pastors in a local seminary.

The warm fellowship, mentoring and sense of community he has experienced at Tyndale House, combined with the library facilities, have far outweighed his not so positive experience of our cold and wet climate! Moises has studied late into the night, working until eleven every evening, to make full use of the resources on offer. Having full internet access (rarely available in Cuba) and a quiet environment in which to study have helped to make visiting the UK for the first time an enjoyable challenge.

Moises now looks forward to returning in July to his church and fiancée in Cuba. He goes with a desire to equip Christians to stand firm in their faith and to encourage them to continue to reach out to their fellow Cubans.

Watermarks
William Tyndale’s 1526 New Testament is widely recognised as one of the most significant of printed books, but there is uncertainty about where exactly it was printed. Ian Christie-Miller has made an interesting study of the watermarks in the paper, which you can read in full here.

Recent Visitors
Yirgu Nigussie Bira came to Tyndale House from Ethiopia via London School of Theology, where he is studying for a PhD in linguistics.

A former government employee in Ethiopia, Yirgu is a translation consultant with Wycliffe Bible Translators and has worked with translation teams in various parts of the country.

Alexander Apostolovski is a recent visitor from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. He found the library so valuable that he said:

“In my mind there is no doubt that anyone who is serious about theology should at least spend a tea break at Tyndale House.”

In the picture he is sharing his Cambridge experiences with the congregation at his home church, and is sporting the first Tyndale House tie to be seen in public.

 

Talking point
A Tyndale House tie in woven silk would be a great conversation starter to tell friends and colleagues about the importance of Tyndale House to the development of Christian scholarship and expertise. You can get either a regular tie or a bow tie (self-tie) here.

 

We are very grateful for your ongoing prayers for and support of Tyndale House, particularly as we make plans for significant developments for the future.

Yours in Christ,

Peter Williams
