Members in Mission

As a community, we are called to partner with God to send out workers to spread the gospel and help bring people into relationship with Jesus. MPPC currently has 68 members in mission, most of whom are placed in long-term career service; about 20% serve 3 or fewer years. For security reasons, we do not list all of our Members in Mission. Thank you for your prayers for their ministries and their safety.

Wyliffe Bible Translators

Papua New Guinea

Kim is also providing computer consulting to various translation teams and supporting the SILAS Bible draft printing system.  She has been helping to develop computer solutions for mother tongue translators living in remote locations around the world.

Today about 200 million people do not have the Bible in their own language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best.
