The World of Wycliffe - Information Technology

Today's missionaries enter a world that is very different from the one that most missionaries knew even 30 years ago. The world now runs on information maintained by digital systems.

Electronic communications, travel, media and the role of software in virtually everything you touch, from cars to watches to music to money, make IT the base for the global infrastructure.

This is certainly true in the "developed" world, and is fast becoming the case in the developing world as well. Everything seems to depend on IT to one degree or another. Missionaries cannot function effectively without dependence on IT any more than those who send them.


IT professionals are among the most in-demand jobs in Bible Translation. Computers have given translators the ability the do their work faster and more efficiently. My desire is to use my skills and experience with pc repair, server backups, network and email support and so much more that computers and technology can help with.


How to help us get to Cameroon:
It's really very simple. We are so close to reaching our goal of being to 20% by the end of January. Please help us reach us our next goal of 30% by the end of February.  Every financial gift, no matter how big or small, is appreciated and important to the work.  We are excited to see how God is going to provide.
