Ramon and Deborah Padilla | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Ramon and Deborah Padilla

In 2020 Ramon and Deb reached ten years of involvement in ministry in Oaxaca, Mexico. They primarily served as linguists with a Scripture translation project in one of the Zapotec languages. Despite health challenges experienced in the tropics, their passion continues: to advocate, build capacity, and work with local minority language communities. They are excited to continue doing this as members of both a Scripture Access team working in the North region of the Americas, and a local Diaspora team ministering to churches and outreach ministries in Canada.

In their current ministry focus, Ramon and Deb are coming alongside existing diaspora ministries in the Greater Toronto Area to partner with them to more effectively use and have access to Scriptures and other resources in the minority languages of homeland communities of immigrants. They are also part of a team working to connect diaspora communities to translate the Bible into their own language if this has not been done yet.

Canada is expecting to welcome 1.3 million immigrants by the end of 2024! Many of these are mother tongue speakers of minority languages. These speakers may not have access to any written, audio, or signed materials in their languages, including translated Scriptures. Connecting people who desire to connect with the Scriptures in the languages they know and value the most—is a challenging and exciting prospect!

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.
