Fred & Jodi Leman | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Fred & Jodi Leman

Fred and Jodi, along with their four children, joined Wycliffe in February 2017 and are excited about God calling them to serve the Bibleless people of Papua New Guinea (PNG). PNG represents over 800 of the world’s languages and roughly 300 of those still need Bible translation. Given PNG’s extremely rugged terrain, aviation services and support is crucial to the translation teams that are working in remote locations. Fred will serve as a helicopter pilot supporting the translators with transportation, supplies and equipment, and medical evacuation should the need arise. Jodi will assist in various staff care roles as needed in addition to her primary role of caring for their family. Currently, they are building a team of prayer and financial partners and would love to have you join their team sharing in the work God is doing in Papua New Guinea through their 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 Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This monthly 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.
