Steve & Mary Santos | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Steve & Mary Santos

These California natives went to Cameroon, Africa, in September 2000 to do a short-term construction project. After the project was complete, Steve ran the Construction and Maintenance Department. Mary home schooled their children and helped other missionaries by showing hospitality.

Full-time members since 2004, Steve served in various administrative roles. In 2014, he joined Cameroon’s Personnel Department with the blending of his construction and administrative skills for a new ministry: Village Support. He provides help with home construction projects and a listening ear. The goal is to help missionaries engaged in the Bible translation movement to function well in their living context and to provide emotional and spiritual encouragement.

Mary works at the main administrative center in Yaounde as Support Services Manager, Group Vehicles Manager, and Shipping Coordinator. The many details of these roles serve the departments and members of the Cameroon Branch to further Bible translation.

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.
