Geoff & Sue Russell | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Geoff & Sue Russell

We first went to PNG in Dec. 1999 to be Children's Home Parents and spent the best 8 years of our lives doing that. After working for two years in our Aviation department we returned to our roots managing the Children's Home Department. Sue found the perfect job managing the WA Volunteer Center that houses short term teams that come to PNG to assist with projects. She also used the facilities for many community activities. In April 2013 we returned to the US for a study furlough.
In May 2016 Sue completed a 3 year course of study at Talbot School of Theology's Institute of Spiritual Formation on the Biola University campus and graduated with High Honors receiving her Master of Arts Degree in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care.
Following that we re-located to take up ministry at the JAARS Center near Waxhaw N.C. Sue is using her training to work in Wycliffe's Spiritual Development Department helping to craft new programs that will enhance the abilities of our fellow missionaries to maintain their spiritual health, both on and off the field. Geoff's assignment is in the Aviation Training Department coordinating the recurrent training for JAARS pilots and pilots from other missions around the world as they come to JAARS for refresher training.
We are have seen an increase recently and are now receiving 50% of our monthly ministry budget! Will you please prayerfully consider investing in Bible translation by partnering financially in our Wycliffe ministry?

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.
