More Than Translation


During our first week at Training Camp, we have discovered that they do more than translate the Bible. Although Bible translation is their main goal because over 100 million people do not have the Bible in their spoken language, there are many other positions that make the work of Bible translation possible. Two of these positions, as you might guess, are counselor and nurse.

Tywonn and I are going to do our part to fill those positions, but we can’t do the other positions such as ethnomusicologist, anthropologist, pilot, teacher, recruiter, and personnel assistant. Check out the links on these words to find out what the heck they mean. These positions are vital to the work of Bible translation. An example of this would be a pilot. Many of the pilots that work with our mission agency and others around the world bring much needed supplies and transport people when they are in need of medicine.

I’ve always said that the jobs in the mission community are as varied as the positions in the United States. If you can dream it, you can do it on the mission field. Isn’t that cool!!
