We arrived at the Holiday Inn Express this past Sunday afternoon. It’s a new hotel on the property of Pioneers, a wonderful ministry aimed at planting new churches. Ken and I met on a missions trip hosted by Pioneers back in 1982 so they are special to us.
We’re here this week for MACR meetings. At Wycliffe Bible Translators, that stands for Member and Care Resources, a part of Human Resources. Ken’s department, Senior Benefits, and Anne’s as well, fall under this department.
Every two years we meet together for several days. We learn about each others roles and how we can work better together. The theme seems to be “Transitions” which is appropriate as Wycliffe USA has a new president, and new COO and a new HR officer as well as many other positions. Our jobs are new too, so we’re in good company.
Today we talked at length about how our work in the area of retirement aids in the vision of Bible Translation. One of the big takeaways was that people made in the image of God have value and therefore we should care for them from the moment they join our ministry into retirement.
Thank you for partnering with us as we serve over 3,000 members of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA.
