The Wycliffe Ministry of

Aidan Aannestad

Aidan Aannestad knows that he has been created by God for no other purpose than to do linguistics. It's been clear to him since seventh grade that he was hard-wired to do linguistics – but that was supposed to be in academia, certainly not missions. God got a hold of him after college and pointed him to Wycliffe, and has given him a real desire to see people have access to God's Word in a language that speaks to them on a heart level, not just a head level.

Aidan is hoping to go to Papua New Guinea to help provide linguistics support for translation teams - when they can't figure out the intricacies of the language they're working with, he'll be there to help them. He's well trained to do this kind of analysis, and this is basically his dream job. Papua New Guinea has over 800 language communities, and more than 300 of those have none of the Bible translated at all; so there's quite a lot of work that needs to be done!

Please prayerfully consider joining Aidan as a co-laborer in the transforming ministry of Bible translation by becoming a regular financial partner and prayer partner in his Wycliffe ministry.

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.
