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!
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.
Sometimes I go through a day or month and think, “What have I accomplished?” It’s nice to look at a list with items checked off or to look at photos to see where I’ve been. It’s also great to see how my work and service hours are accomplishing much for the Kingdom of God.
We love Bible Translation! We think that having the Bible available in the format and language that you use most often is the best way to know God and His plan for your life. That’s why we’ve invested in Wycliffe Bible Translators for almost 30 years. And you have done so also as you’ve supported us prayerfully and financially.
So take a look back at this short video and praise God for what YOU’VE been a part of in 2018. It’s worth celebrating!
