The Wycliffe Ministry of

James & Stephanie Ernandes

James has a crucial role as the Auto Shop Manager at Ukarumpa Missions Center in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The need for Bible Translation is great with over 800 languages spoken in that country. The Auto Shop serves Bible Translators and support staff, as well as the people of Papua New Guinea with safe and reliable transportation and maintenance. James' heart is to train the Papua New Guinean mechanics professionally, and also equip them to strengthen their walk with Jesus.

Stephanie is a writer, photographer and videographer for a blog called The PNG Experience. People all over the world read about the exciting ways that Papua New Guineans support Bible translation in their own country.

James and Stephanie need Prayer Partners as well as Financial Partners in their Wycliffe ministry. Whatever God calls you to do, know that you'll be a crucial part of helping bring God's Word to many people in their heart language!

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 this account 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.
