Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Lutheran translators report New light for sun worshippers By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Guatemala's people of the cross descendants of the an- cient Mayan civilization have begun to understand a different interpretation of their ancient title. Telling how the Mayans lost their early forms of written communication during the Spanish conquests in Central America, missionary Ted this week explained to a Lethbridge audience some of Ins work among the modern Mayans, the Pocomchi tribe. Accompanied by tribesman Reginaldo Tipol, Mr. Engel and Rev. Kenneth Zank of the Lutheran Bible Translators, Calif spoke to a public meeting in Erickson's Restaurant Tuesday evening. Alice Hahn helped arrange the Southern Alberta meeting. "May 3rd has long been a special Mayan day, since before the time of Mr. Engel explained in an inter- view.

The day had special significance to the sun worshipping ancient Mayans. After the Spanish conquest, the people quickly identified images of Jesus on a crucifix with their sun god." Mr. Engel, a hor- ticulturalist specializing in orchids and tropical plants, now lives with his wife Gloria and four young sons on a two- acre farm in north central Guatemala. The couple took Bible school and language training in Canada and the United States before being assigned to Central America under Wycliffe Bible Translators. Pastor Zank explained the purpose of the current North American tour is to acquaint more persons with Lutheran Bible Translators. He describ- ed LBT as an independent recruiting and support arm of drawing interest from all branches of Lutheran expression. Lutheran translators are at work developing alphabets, analysing grammer and translating Christian scrip- ture in Nepal, The Philip- pines, New Guinea, Australia, Columbia, Ecuador, Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico, Ghana. Ivory Coast, Liberia and the United States. "We are the tool makers, the language builders, the alphabet discoverers who help plant a Mr. Zank said. "Translators give in- digenous people a Bible in their own language and en- courage the people to develop their own Christian ex- perience and church built on. he continued. Translators work toward a specific goal, moving on to a new language group whenever a Bible can be left behind for another tribe to study and use in evangelism. "By 1985, Bible translation teams around the world hope to have entered every known language group. They hope to be out again by the year 2000.'' Mr. Zank said. Mr. Tipol will become a translation co-worker with Mr. Engel upon return to San Cristobal, Guatemala. A bachelor of science graduate from the University of Guatemala, Mr. Tipol is also an ordained Nazarene minister. To date, he has been chiefly responsible for Chris- tian evangelism among the Pocomchi tribe and has recently trained assistants who will continue church out- reach while Mr. Tipol concentrates on translation work. Computers helpful Bible study aid Elected Cincinnati Archbishop Joseph Bernardin was elected this week presi- dent of America's Roman Catholic bishops, at a Washington meeting. TORONTO (CP) Whe Scottish minister Andrew Morton claimed almost 11 years ago to have proven with a computer that St. Paul could not have written any more than five of the 14 epistles attributed to him, the real significance of Mr. Morton's claim was the interest he stimulated in the use of com- puters to study the Bible. So says Prof. John Kurd, who teaches a course in com- puters and Biblical study at Trinity College in Toronto. "What he (Andrew Morton) said in 1963 wasn't really said Prof. Kurd.
