Spotlight on Missions

The following is an update from Bev Harrar, keeping us posted on their latest activities at Wycliffe:

Thank you, friends at Mt Vernon, for continuing to support us as we begin our 41st year of mission service with Wycliffe Bible Translators. It is almost 50 years since I (Bev) went through a wonderful and life-changing confirmation class with Nancy W.

Michael and I are currently in Orlando at Wycliffe’s US headquarters. We were to have left for Papua New Guinea in January but because of COVID were unable to. We plan now to depart for PNG mid August.

We are grateful to have meaningful remote work to do. I continue to work with Wycliffe families in the Pacific (Vanuatu, Guam, East Timor, Philippines, Solomon Island and PNG). I oversee the education plan and care of 331 Wycliffe kids in the region. It is my responsibility to make sure that they are receiving a quality education so that they are on target to enter their passport countries and be ready for the next step whether that is work, military or university. I also make sure that our 65 Wycliffe teachers in the area are thriving. Currently my days are filled with zoom calls, emails and resourcing families.

While here in Orlando Michael serves as the Wycliffe USA artist in residence. He is creating several pieces for the Wycliffe building that tell what our great God is doing around the world in the area of Bible translation. He also serves as a regional director for PNG. He administrates two dozen teams of Bible translators, both expatriate and Papua New Guineans, helping them with all they need to do an excellent translation. It is very much both a pastoral and practical job, helping translators stay focused and removing obstacles.

We will remain here in Orlando until the second week of May when we will head back to the Lancaster PA area where our grandchildren are so that we can be near them when they are out of school. Hopefully, August will find us finishing our time living in missions housing and heading to PNG. We have an extra bedroom here in our Orlando apartment and would love to have you come for a visit!

HELP “CHANGE” THE WORLD
Once services resume, the third Sunday of each month we will take an offering of your loose change that will go toward supporting missions.  Empty those change purses!!
