Colin & Dianne Lord | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Colin & Dianne Lord

Colin and Dianne teach missionary children at the Ukarumpa International School (UIS) in Papua New Guinea (PNG). UIS supports Bible translation by providing quality Christian education for the children of Bible translators and other support personnel. Colin teaches music (band, choir, high school music theory, and elementary music) and Dianne teaches piano and accompanies choirs. They also promote vernacular scripture use through songwriting workshops with Papua New Guineans.

Colin and Dianne first went to PNG in 2003 and served there until 2011. God opened the door for them to return to PNG in 2017 with their youngest sons Isaac and Joshua.

The Lords returned to the United States in December 2020 to share their Wycliffe ministry personally with their partners, churches, and others. They are working to go back to PNG to start teaching in January 2021.

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.
