リース家族の活躍・ご紹介 036

Rees Family’s Amazing Mission (RAM)



2018年現在、リース一家は、タイの奥地で現地住民と共に、様々な試練を乗り越えながら布教を展開しています. 私の旧友リチャードからの、当時の近況メールを通じて、一家を紹介するコラムです. メールが大量ですので、「さわり:読みどころ」だけを、 “The World of Richard Rees” in my HP に保存してゆきます. 遠藤の判断で、個人情報が含まれる部分は、「Omission:中略」として、省略する場合があります.専門用語の和訳は、Heaven’s Gate Chapelの早津 栄牧師 (Pastor Hayatsu Sakae) のご指導を受けています.  Dear Richard and Wendy; Hoping you could enjoy having a taste of slipping through time back to your staying in Arai. (和訳 by Yoshy)



036: <Quoted the e-mail from Richard and Wendy on Mar. 20, 2004>




Yesterday we arrived back from being almost a month in Chiang Mai. On the way down we stopped in the city of Kanchanaburi were I had my final root *canal treatment (at least on that tooth, I haven't been brave enough to find out if there are other teeth in bad shape) and my first crown treatment. Today we spent the day getting ready for our trip in to the village. Wendy also made *granola and cookies, and I basically finished figuring out taxes. *This time of year the road into the village is good, just hot and dusty. Tomorrow we plan to go in and spend a good week and a half in the village. Pray that I will get a good start on language learning and Wendy can get started on the rough drafts of the portions of *Acts that need translating. We are also hoping to see some progress on the house. 

*canal [kənˈæl](cn) 根管、根管、運河 <root canal treatment:根管治療>  *granola [grəʊlə](un) グラノーラ (つぶしたエンバク・ナッツ・ドライフルーツ・赤砂糖を混ぜて小粒にした朝食用シリアル)  *this time of year(ad) この時期は  *Actsacts of the apostles [əpɑ́səlz]:使徒行伝




<4a: グラノーラ: granola>

Thanks for your prayers, an elephant has dragged the house posts to the house site and all the other materials have been carried there also. Now with us being in there, decisions can be made and things can really get started. After a week and a half we need to come out again. I have another crown appointment and we need to go to Bangkok for Wendy to get her *Rhogam shot for her pregnancy. It may also *work out that George and Gwen will be ready to fly down from Chiang Mai and we can pick them up on the same trip. Wendy is doing well with her pregnancy and has a lot more energy than she did earlier on. Pray for her as we are coming into hot season and the hot weather will make life uncomfortable. Megan is doing great and has done well with all the moving that we have been doing.


*Rhogam = Rho(D) immune globulin, immunoglobulin:免疫グロブリン  *work out:うまくゆく、解ける、結局~となる

ひょう, あられ, みぞれ」の違いは?What’s the difference between hyo, arare and mizore?



*雹、霰は、英語では、どちらも、hail [heɪl] でした。


「雹 (ひょう)」:a hailstone (一粒)a hailstorm (降雹)


「霰 (あられ)」:Ditto:同上 <区別は.>



「ひょう」は時には直径5センチ以上になるものもあり、農作物や家畜などに大きな被害を与えます。 「あられ」は「ひょう」と大きさが違うだけで―「あられ」は直径5ミリ未満、「ひょう」は直径5ミリ以上―その成因は同じです。<中略> 主に「ひょう」は初夏「あられ」は初冬に降り、俳句では「ひょう」は夏「あられ」は冬の季語です。



「霙 (みぞれ)」:sleet [slíːt]

I wish it would be sleeting for a short while whenever it is very hot!

この拙い英訳ブログ作業はヨッシーの英語力精進と外国友人への近況報告のためです。常時、友人ネイティブ数名が検査して下さっておられ、誤表記の場合は即「訂正」記事を書いています。This poor translation into English is for both brushing up Yoshy’s proficiency and telling updates to my foreign friends. Yoshy’s several foreign friends are always checking this blog; wrong expressions found, an article of “Correction” has been uploaded here.

英文中、英検2級レベル以上の語彙や表現には、* (星印)で注釈をつけています。In this blog, Yoshy adds * (asterisks) at the vocabularies and expressions whose levels are Eiken 2nd and over, and writes their explanations.
