The Wycliffe Ministry of

Joe & Mary Benton

They love the Word of God. It’s where they get to know God and hear His heart and plans for them and the world. It shapes their thinking and priorities. Since 1972 they’ve been committed to serving the Lord in Bible translation. In 1990 they, with the Zapotec translation team, presented the New Testament to the Chichicapam Zapotecs, and in 2014 the New Testament was presented to the Coatecas Altas Zapotec. There are continuing felt needs for using the Scripture and teaching people to read. The Chichicapam Zapotecs want a New Testament revision done while those from Coatecas Altas want parts of the Old Testament translated. They invite you to share their vision and join them as committed prayer and financial partners with their Wycliffe ministry to bring God’s Word to these people hungry for it.

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.
