His is a very interesting experience. I thought it humorous sometime back to hear him tell about first coming

to Bethel and being introduced to a member of the then Governing Body. when learning he was from Fiji

said "Hym, that is where men where skirts! " He seemed not very impressed by that. ( We all must bear our

own form of persecution ). I was amazed at how much of a linguist he is. I didn't count up how many languages

he said he know but it seemed liked at least a dozen. Now wonder they assigned him to the translation commi-
tee. It is wonderful to see how the various gifts of the brothers are used to get the work done.

I just listened to Brother Jackson speaking his own life story!  It is great to hear of the various talents of the brothers, especially those of the Governing Body.  In the spoken version, he revealed in supplementary information that he and his wife completed a full dictionary in Tuvaluan after 20 years of daily work on it, which the Australian government actually printed and distributed, and also a grammar book.   In this, he was able to use his previous studies to help people in the truth and others who speak the language, and that must be very gratifying.


I wonder- often the expression "language of the heart" is used, and the scripture (Acts 2:8, 11) was mentioned in his life story.  I wonder if, in these verses, the original Greek words carry that thought.
