Bible translation is the job of the church worldwide. It is needed so that the church itself can grow. We see partnership as multi-faceted. It is primarily for prayer, mutual encouragement, sending personnel, and financial sponsorship of the work. You can participate through your church or directly by contact with a Wycliffe missionary. Learn more about Wycliffe’s ministry through magazine, other publications and literature, or through the website at www.wycliffe.org.
Wycliffe missionaries do not receive a guaranteed salary. Like all Wycliffe members, Doug and Priscilla look to the Lord to provide funds necessary for all their needs. They look to God to provide funds for living and ministry expenses through individuals, families and churches. Those who give become partners in the ministry of Bible translation and enable the Higbys to commit their full attention to ministry.
It takes a team
The fruit is changed lives. Having God’s Word in their own language results in changed lives in many people. As people read His Word and are eager to learn, the Holy Spirit brings new life in Christ.
The branches are Bible translators who live in towns and villages around the world. They live among the people, learn their language, and translate God’s precious Word for and with them.
The trunk is a team of specialists: teachers, pilots, managers, construction workers, printers, secretaries, and many more who back up the Bible translators. This frees the translators from other tasks and allows them to concentrate on the translation of God’s Word.
The roots are families, individuals, and churches who are involved in partnership with us. The tree would not flourish without the root system, and God’s provisions of sunshine and rain.
