Please pray for this event, as it is the first of it's kind in this former Yugoslavian Republic.
The story of how it came to be translated is a God story in and of itself. Over four years ago I received an e-mail from Marjia. I was still self-published so I said go ahead. Then just two or three weeks ago she e-mailed me and told me it was done! I was shocked! I told her that Crossway had to be contacted, which she did. They told her that she had to use the new edition to translate.
In less than a week she made all the corrections, got the green light from Crossway, and designed a new cover! (We didn't get the rights to use the USA cover in time for it to go to print. I did however call her in the 11th hour to try to get the rights...that was the first time I've ever called Croatia!) This was a labor of love and dedication by Marjia and I praise God for her faithfulness to translate Emotional Purity. She is part of this youth conference and has promised to send me an update!
When she first contacted me she was single, but now here's her lovely family:
How awesome is God!?!
