Ed Condra | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Ed Condra

Ed and Debi Condra went to PNG in 1983 and began working among the Patpatar people to translate the New Testament into their language, with the Patpatar New Testament being dedicated in 1998. Beginning in 2005 the Condras worked with the Patpatar people to establish the New Ireland Translation Institute (NITI) for the training of mother tongue translators in other languages of the New Ireland Island area. NITI has been working with 12 languages and dialects, with Ed being the consultant for 5 projects, 4 of which are now finished: Sokarek New Testament, Hinsaal New Testament, Barok New Testament, and Patpatar Psalms. Ed is currently working as a consultant on the Sokirik New Testament and providing general administrative oversight for NITI. Since late 2007 Ed had to stay in the USA due to Debi's Alzheimer's disease, but now that Debi is with the Lord, Ed is planning to return to PNG for working sessions with the Sokirik translator as soon as the pandemic situation allows.

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.
