As I said in the facts, I’m a missionary serving with Wycliffe Associates on the Technology Advancement Team. Our mission is to bring technology to translators necessary to advance Bible translation in some of the most remote locations on Earth. When I’m not on deployments I help prepare teams for the next deployment and I help my colleagues with research projects. I also provide support for the translation teams we serve. Unfortunately I also have to work a day job to put food on the table and keep a roof over my families head. Will you pray about partnering with us so I can serve God at Wycliffe Associates full-time?Our family wants to make sure everyone who needs a Bible in their “heart” language will have a chance to get one in this generation.  Please help, many souls are counting on you.
