Dear Friends and Family,
It will be 28 years this summer since we first went to Guatemala to teach MKs at Christian Academy of Guatemala where I had the opportunity to teach a number of Wycliffe MKs over the years. Two of the families I served are highlighted in the below article.
The article also highlights the “Passing of the Torch” from a more traditional North American missionary role of primary translator. Now, the language community and mother-tongue-translators are taking ownership and direction of continued Bible translation work. Even though Wycliffe’s role in Bible translation in Guatemala is diminished, it is a good kind of “diminished”. Not only in Guatemala, but in many other countries, Wycliffe’s role in Bible translation is as advisor and consultant.
We are very grateful for the opportunity to serve with Wycliffe and are thankful for the many friends and family that have partnered with us for nearly 28 years.
Doug and Wendy
