Ben & Mandy Pehrson | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Ben & Mandy Pehrson

The Pehrsons have served with Wycliffe since 2000, now team leaders for the Aitape West Translation Project in Papua New Guinea. Ben's passion is to equip translators from ten languages to produce and improve their own mother tongue Bible translations. Mandy has been training a group of local literacy teachers from these languages.

It's a real joy to see a fire for God's Word growing since the first Scripture portions were published in 2011. A growing team has been working to produce additional portions, Bible audio recordings, dictionaries, and to address other spiritual and language development needs together with local church and community stakeholders.

A key goal is to train local trainers to serve other language groups in the region and help them receive God's Word for the first time in their own heart languages. To that end, some are already serving as mentors each year in regional workshops where Ben serves as a teacher in New Testament Greek and Translation courses.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
