    Sleeping Coconuts MOBI æ Kindle Edition sleeping ebok, coconuts download, Sleeping Coconuts PDFEPUBWhile a family of translators is on sabbatical in the states a tsunami consisting of three gigantic waves hits the village they called home With the devastation leaving the town flattened and those left alive exposed to the elements the Nystroms fly back to survey the damage and do what they can to help This book details everything that happened and how God used the destruction to bring the people of the Apop village in Papua New Guinea closer to him Whereas the writing is not excellent anyone interested in missions or translation work will enjoy this book There are chapters of translated accounts from natives maps and even a glossary of terms pertaining to the Papua New Guinea culture The Nystroms have served with Wycliffe translation for than 25 translating multiple languages in Papua New Guinea
