Mike and Laura Lothers | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Mike and Laura Lothers

Mike and Laura each joined Wycliffe before they met and married in 1997. Mike works with a team to develop software to help Bible translation. He and his team are partnering with the United Bible Societies to develop Paratext: a computer software tool designed to help translate Scripture into any language that still needs it. Mike is supporting translators on their projects through every phase of the Bible translation process. The result is reaching people who don’t have God’s Word so that evangelism, church planting and discipleship become possible.

Laura’s ministry is focused at home as she teaches Joanna (2001) and David (2004), and cares for Samuel (2015).

Please consider how you might partner with Mike & Laura in their Wycliffe ministry. Mike and Laura are dependent on prayers and gifts given by their partners in ministry. They invite you personally to join their team.

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.
