The Wycliffe Ministry of

Laura Christel Horlings

What a privilege it is to walk alongside the Choctaw of Mississippi!

Laura Christel grew up in Mississippi. She attended Belhaven University in Jackson, MS, and studied applied linguistics in Canada. Choctaw people lived in Mississippi long before our written history. Choctaw believers have a vision for community transformation through a modern Choctaw Scripture translation. God called Laura Christel back to Mississippi with skills to work with the Choctaw.

Laura Christel previously served with Wycliffe as Program Coordinator of Chihówa Annopa Toshóli – “Scripture Sharers.” They represent a Choctaw-run non-profit doing translation and Scripture engagement. Laura Christel is delighted to return, working with Wycliffe as Program Coordinator for completion of a Choctaw New Testament with audio recordings and Scripture engagement tools. Laura Christel feels it is an honor return to engage with the Choctaw community of faith.

Laura Christel and her two sons, Kinsley and Rio, live in Jackson, MS. The Horlings family has a passion that people of every nation learn God values them, their input, their hearts, and speaking directly to them in their heart-language. Wycliffe would be delighted for you to partner with the Horlings' Wycliffe ministry today!

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.
