Martha Gateley | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Martha Gateley

Martha is a Consultant in Training for Sign Language translation in the Americas, as well as working with Scripture Engagement for the Deaf churches in Colombia and other countries
This is a very needed work as the Deaf remain largely unreached. Even in America only a small percentage of the Deaf have had the gospel presented to them in their heart language (ASL) in an understandable way. Overseas, many of the Deaf have no access to communication or interpreting in churches at all -- and so remain completely unreached. Out of around 200 (known) signed languages, only 4 are considered reached ( "reached" means that more than 2% of the population is Christian). The other hundreds of known and unknown signed languages remain completely unreached, even though they often live in the middle of Christian countries. The gospel is often not being communicated across the language barrier to the Deaf community living right outside the church. This is why Bible Translation into Sign Languages is so vital for the Deaf around the world. Join Martha by partnering in this 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.
