Not sure how to deal with the crossing pronouns when there is really one one, two at best.
Nor am I sure how to deal with the double DO, one for the modal one for the internal verb.
A lot of the vocabulary here needs improvement.

what does "jan nasin" mean, does it mean "Priest"?

No, "people of the way", an early self-designation of the Church. I needed some noun there; the original only has a pronoun, which cause enough problems later on. Neither 'jan pana' "Apostles" nor 'jan pi kama sona' "Disciples" quite fit; 'jan sama' is not bad but has been taken over for literal relatives.
