R. W. is a conservative Anabaptist who has served with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Africa for longer than All-Nations existed. She will be telling stories of what God has done and what she has learned in over 20 years as a Bible translator. We withhold her full name here for security reasons.
Adam and his family live in Papua New Guinea, where he serves in Bible translation with the Enga people. Adam also participated in our video series, God’s Word: Enduring through the Ages. He will be demonstrating what Bible translation is like.
Steve served in the jungles of Venezuela with Ethnos360 back when it was New Tribes Mission. He is now on Ethnos360’s executive leadership team and teaches at their Wayumi center in Pennsylvania. He will be sharing experiences and lessons learned with the Joti people.
