The Wycliffe Ministry of

Sam & Deb Smucker

What would you know about God if you could only tell stories?

A lot! The Bible is one long story that shares God's plan, who He is, and who we should be.

Papua New Guinea is an oral society, so stories are the primary way that knowledge and truth are passed on to others.

The last five years Sam and Deb have been teaching people in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea to learn God's stories and tell them in their own language. Thirty-five new languages now have some of God's story in their own language!

People are becoming Christians, churches planted and strengthened, and lives discipled through stories and other teaching such as Culture Meets Scripture and Trauma Healing.

Sam and Deb have been in PNG since 2001 and love doing what they do. Would you join with us and let God use you also to make His Word alive to the people in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea?

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.
