When Daniel started Tien Phong Ministries 6 years ago, he never imagined the
international support and recognition he'd get for his translation work. Over the past few years, he's built strong connections with Desiring God,
Crossway, 9Marks, Ligonier, and Banner of Truth. The last few months have been filled with several unique opportunities that have come as fruit of these
connections. In July, Desiring God invited Daniel to an all expenses paid summit in Amsterdam where he was able to connect with other global
partners working in translation ministries around the world. In August, right after we arrived back in Minnesota, Crossway invited him to Chicago for a small
cohort of translators where he was further inspired and encouraged in his work. In September, both Daniel and I were given the opportunity to attend the Sing!
Conference in Nashville as part of a scholarship program they were offering for people working in songwriting and hymn translation around the world. These have been
such blessed times for both of us and an encouragement to see fruit from our labors.
Everywhere we've lived over the past few years, Daniel has continued to work full-time in his translation ministry - even through this season of
transition and change! In the past 2 months, Daniel and his team published 2 new books: Count Zinzendorf by Janet & Geoff
Benge, the first book in the Christian Heroes Then and Now series, and Good News of Great Joy by John Piper. He also recently
finished a long-term translation project for One Mission called "Training and Multiply" - an in-depth series of booklets about church planting. His
current projects include 50 Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die by John Piper, the note sections of the Global ESV Study Bible, and
daily articles from Desiring God.
