The Wycliffe Ministry of

Gary & Ellie Sikma

Gary and Ellie are excited to be a part of Wycliffe. After serving in a number of other ways, they both feel God leading them in this new direction.

They will be using their gifts, talents and previous work experience as they move to Cape Town to support SIL-Southern Africa in language development and translation efforts there through administration, human resources, financial management, security, prayer coordination and mentoring.

To enable them to begin their new roles soon, please prayerfully consider joining their Wycliffe ministry team. You are invited to:

Pray: None of their work is possible without prayer. Sign up to be a prayer warrior for this couple as they join God's work around the globe through their Wycliffe ministry.

Give: By joining their Wycliffe team as a financial partner, you too participate in kingdom work in a tangible way.

Advocate: Some of you are called to share the vision of Bible translation with others and connect prayer and financial partners with missionaries.

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.
