Palmers' Progress - December 2012

Progress? Yes, after submitting all the text and cross references and pictures to Doug Lotz in our NTM publishing department, Tom finished editing all the introductions to each book, then the glossary, and all the Hamtai names in the maps. As Doug finished editing each book, he would pass the book to Jack Abbott, a retiree in the Homes, to check his work of transferring the text into the final format of the New Testament. Jack checked formatting, chapter and verse numbers, paragraphing, picture placements, etc. Then he would pass the book on to Edna Trigg (pictured here) to proof the manuscript again. They would each stick a little yellow “post-it” on pages with notes telling what needed to be corrected. Edna is also a retiree here from the Yagaria tribe in Papua New Guinea, but she keeps very busy with proof reading and doing typing of translations for the PNG Field.

Otherwise we would have to do it all via Email and phone. Here we are in his office discussing the formatting:
