Every six months we focus on one missionary family and their needs with additional financial and prayer support through our “above and beyond the budget” special gifts. This fall our focus is on Matthew and Teresa Lee with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Cameroon. Our objective is to raise $2,000.00 during October/November. One potential project they have identified is support to help fund the work of the young man below that Matthew is training. So far we have raised just over $1000.

Matthew’s department was recently able to hire Louis Pascal, a Cameroonian, to work with him in Language Technology. As the Lee’s look toward their next furlough, Matthew is training Louis Pascal to help bridge the gap while Matthew and Teresa are home, and to free them to do additional translation work. Over the past few months Louis Pascal has been helping Matthew translate training materials into French, doing research, and helping to facilitate workshops. Louis Pascal already plays a major and rewarding part in bringing the Bible to the people of Cameroon. Currently Louis Pascal’s project is currently funded at 60%. It is used to pay Louis Pascal’s salary and provide for his materials, travel, and training. Would you consider helping to support Language Technology (and Matthew) for this special project?

Make your gifts payable to First Presbyterian Church. Mark them for Wycliffe. We will forward all the funds that are raised at the end of November. Contact Art Carter if you have any questions.
