The Wycliffe Ministry of

Jim and Nydia Schmidt

Thanks for your interest in reaching out to those who don't yet have God's Word in their heart language. Jim & Nydia's work with many organizations in the Americas will enable those organizations to join in God's Mission and participate together in reaching minority peoples with God’s Word and His message of hope in the languages and formats they understand best.
Nydia's role as Americas Area Director enables her to work directly with many organizations and leaders in the Americas. Vision 2025 acknowledges the need to partner with others. These partnerships require the investment of time in developing joint initiatives.
Jim is serving a number of Bible translation organizations in Mexico, Guatemala, and South America in coordinating projects. Jim also serves as an organizational consultant throughout the Americas.

You are invited to become a prayer and financial partner in their Wycliffe ministry in supporting Bible translation. Thank you.

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.
