Joshua & Emily Merchant | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Joshua & Emily Merchant

Please partner with the Merchant's Wycliffe ministry, as they support Bible translation in southern Mexico, through their work with children's education. Josh and Emily work as educators at Oaxaca Christian School. Emily is the principal and Josh teaches PE and maintains the facilities.

Their dedication to the school helps free the hands of other missionaries who are working on Bible translation projects, by taking the burden of educating their children off of their shoulders. The Merchants see their involvement in children's education as playing a vital role in the ministry that Wycliffe is doing, as well as in supporting the missionary youth, providing them with a solid, biblically based education. Their hope is to prepare the missionary youth for their futures all the while encouraging them to grow in their faith, and gain a vision for the lost people groups in southern Mexico and around the World.

You can be involved in their Wycliffe ministry, too! By partnering either financially, through prayer, or both, you have a part in bringing God's Word to those who do not yet have the Scriptures in their heart language.

Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership. They look forward to hearing from you!

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 monthly 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.
