David & Avery Standley | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

David & Avery Standley

Avery and David Standley met at the Canada Institute of Linguistics in 2015, each pursuing a career as Linguists with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Three years, a wedding and a baby later, they joined Wycliffe and accepted an eight month internship assignment in the village of Kawawachikamach, Quebec. They will be working with the Naskapi Nation on their translation project of the Old Testament, documentation of stories from their oral tradition, and dictionary development.

David and Avery find inspiration for Bible Translation from the truth that “every nation and tribe and people and language” will one day be “standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb” praising God. (Revelation 7:9) It is their desire and privilege to be a part of translating God’s Word into the heart language of First Nations people so they might know and praise God in their own tongue.

The Standley family would be blessed by your prayerful consideration to join them in their Wycliffe ministry through prayer and financial partnership to bring Scriptures to the First Nations peoples of Canada.

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 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.
