The Wycliffe Ministry of

Ric & Bobbie Bekius

Ric and Bobbie have served with Wycliffe since 1983. They served 28 years in Brazil desiring to see all language groups having access to God’s Word in their own tongue. Ric’s primarily work was in the area of construction and maintenance, while Bobbie served through a variety of center services jobs along with being a home maker and Mom to our 5 children. In the fall of 2013 Ric began working on the Wycliffe Ministry and Care Team as a Resource Coordinator with Bobbie’s assistance and in September 2015, Ric began training as an Associate Director for Care Team. From their many years of field experiences they are well equipped to provide care to Wycliffe missionaries through personal contact with encouragement and prayer, answering questions, and connecting them with helpful resources whether in the USA or overseas. We invite you to invest in Bible translation by joining their Wycliffe ministry team of prayer and financial partners.

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.
