We are Ken and Anne Haugh, a couple of ordinary people on an extraordinary adventure. We are privileged to be called into full-time ministry serving God in the Bible translation process as members of Wycliffe USA .
Our blog chronicles our ministry experiences, thoughts, observations, experiences, tech stuff, helpful links, and whatever else comes to mind. In addition to this blog we also send out a newsletter several times a year that anyone can request to receive by email and/or snail mail.

Last month over 30 youth from three different youth groups in Wisconsin, made the long trip to North Carolina. They got to hear about the work of Bible translation, fly in a small airplane and were fed really well.
But for a good part of every day, they served! Half of the group served at JAARS, the technical organization that serves Wycliffe Bible Translators. The other 15 youth and 5 leaders served our residents at Waxhaw Creek Apartments where Anne is the manager.
They washed windows that are difficult to reach, they cleaned the four laundry rooms used by the 42 residents, they spread mulch in the hot Carolina sun and they painted.
During their breaks during the day, many of our retired residents shared stories from serving with Wycliffe and were an inspiration for the young people. A number of the group did not normally attend church so they were able to hear the WHY of serving God from our residents.
Did you know that if you shop with Amazon, you can set it up so that a donation is given to the organization of your choice each time you shop? I have chosen Wycliffe Bible Translators (WBT). While this donation doesn’t come to me directly, indirectly it supports our service.
As you can see, WBT has benefited by almost $20,000! It’s so easy! Shopping supports Bible Translation!
I’m sitting on my couch at HOME in North Carolina, having just finished work for the day. A few days ago we arrived after traveling for 10 days or so.
We spent 5 days on Long Island, visiting three churches that we have a relationship with. Entering these churches, we felt right at HOME with them. They listened to us attentively, asked good questions and fed us really well!. So many people found ways to care for us in unique ways. We are inspired to keep working hard and being sacrificial in our love as they were to us.
While there, we drove by my childhood HOME which has changed quite a bit. With one of my neighbors passing away this past year and our other good friends choosing to move to different states, it didn’t feel like my HOME anymore!
From Long Island, we traveled back to Pennsylvania, staying at my sister’s HOME and visiting with her family as well as Anne’s mother. We are there several times a year and sleeping in the apartment of my sister’s attic, it feels like as second HOME for us.
Thank you for investing in our lives once again as we care for those working in Bible Translation across the world, some far from Home, some near. I leave you with a few photos of our time there!

Many corporations match the gifts of employees, and possibly those of spouses and retirees. Some will even match volunteer hours. Companies typically match the amount after a gift is made, but it is wise to begin the application promptly. Some employers will even set up automatic matching for repeating gifts.
Do you work for Amazon, Northrop Grumman Corporation, GM, or IBM? This are just some of the companies that have a matching gift program.
That means your gift — whether to Wycliffe’s Worldwide Projects Fund, a specific project or to a missionary of your choice — may have double the impact, just by seeing if your company will match your gift, dollar for dollar.
Click hereto see if your employer will match yourdonation.
“This is the best way to start a Saturday!”, said one!.
Saturday morning over 30 seniors in our area came for a delicious breakfast of pancakes, waffles, sausage and fruit. We love serving our members. Laughter permeated the room as everyone chatted together. We value people because God does too. Wish you were here!
