We are native Oregonians from Grants Pass. Since 1978, we have worked in Africa as members of Wycliffe Bible Translators. We have lived in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire and Kenya. But we have ministered in many other countries including Mali, Niger, the Congo (Kinshasa), CAR, Chad, Cameroon, and Sudan. Right now, we are living in Accra, Ghana. We are on loan from Wycliffe to a Ghanaian organization doing Bible translation and literacy in the languages of Ghana – the Ghana Institute of Linguistics, Literacy and Bible Translation (GILLBT). We are passionate about helping Africans leverage the power of the heart language (their mother tongues) to produce the transformations they want in their families, communities and nations. We believe that heart language connects at the deepest level and so produces lasting change.
We have two adult sons, Matthew and Mark, who now live, work and study in the US after having grown up in Africa with us. Find out more family news at: http://edanddayle.wordpress.com.
We are able to serve through the financial and prayer support of churches and individuals. We do not receive a regular salary from Wycliffe.
If you are interested in details about where we live and what that is like, you can see that on our personal website at:
Although we are members of Wycliffe and we are assigned to a Ghanaian organization, our comments on this website are our own and do not necessarily reflect the perspective of either organization.
